Products The X6500 FPGA Miner is an FPGA coprocessor, utilizing dual Spartan-spartan 6 fpga bitcoin mining FPGAs for minimum cost and maximum power efficiency. It is optimized for Bitcoin mining, but can be adapted for other applications.
Power consumption has been measured as low as 15 W. Because this is such a small amount of power, it can be easily kept cool with a single, low RPM fan for a nearly silent mining rig. Pano Logic took this one step further than other thin clients, removing the CPU, memory, and basically everything you’d find in a thin client. What was left was a Spartan-6 FPGA, a few chips to drive the USB ports, a pair of HDMI chips, and a few DDR2 modules. 100 on the Mt Gox exchange. Connect the miner to the router via ethernet cord. I’ve received the hundredth inquiry on FPGA-based Bitcoin and litecoin mining.
Here is an FAQ on this subject. I’ll update starting at the top and get up to speed on litecoin. This FAQ was started mid April’13 shortly after the banking problems in Cyprus and after the crash. Who are you and why do I care?
I work in a company that specializes in FPGAs. We know everything that is worth knowing about FPGAs and their application. It is all that we do. What is your opinion about Bitcoin in general? Hackers or speculators render the whole thing useless or steal everything. Regulatory authorities, either international or nationally, put restrictions on Bitcoin transactions that render the whole thing useless or uneconomical. Now that being said you might be able to make some money until this thing gets crushed out of existence.
B’ if you can somehow keep laundered money out of the network. But the whole thing is anarchy now which you people seem to like. It doesn’t help that worldwide drug syndicates and Russian oligarchs are using your technology to stash money. Can we use your FPGA products to put together a bitchin’ Bitcoin mining rig? Yes, but in no way that appears to be cost effective using our products.
