UltraMiner FPGA affordable 16 nm Xilinx FPGA dev board for crypto mining and more

Molex To do new affordable 16 nm Xilinx FPGA dev board for crypto mining and other high performance applications, which they have made available via the crowd Supply website with prices starting from $399. Preorders placed now will start shipping during March 2020 and the price includes free shipping throughout the United States and worldwide shipping is available for an extra $12.

UltraMiner’s key features include :

– Fast: Built around the latest 16 nm Xilinx Kintex UltraScale+ FPGA, two generations newer than most other FPGA boards
– Versatile: Bitstream designs for multiple mining algorithms
– Resourceful: 356,000 logic cells, 26.2 Mb of on-chip RAM, and 1,368 DSP slices
– Strong Power Output: 60 W maximum power output with dynamic voltage monitoring and control
– Effective Cooling: Compatible with both Intel LGA115x CPU coolers and smaller, 40×40 mm heatsinks
– Easy to Use: A single USB cable handles all operations
– Abundant IO: JTAG and LVDS compatible GPIO headers (PCIE Gen3 x4 and additional GPIOs in the Developer Edition)
– Open Source: Open source bitstream Register-Transfer Level (RTL) designs, mining software, peripheral drivers, and developer documentation
– Affordable: UltraMiner costs a fraction of what you would pay for an FPGA miner or dev board with a similarly cutting-edge processor
