Who ever heard of this hardware? It may be used for mining?

I have been in contact with Pico Computing, about a year ago, to investigate mining on their FPGAs. But it turned out that their LX150 boards ($1200+ per LX150) are insanely expensive compared to, say, Ztex (starting around $220 per LX150).

Yeah, Pico seems to be good at pushing PR and perhaps their support is top notch (only their customers know) but their hardware markup is very high.
