I found that in my university there are some FPGA's available to test and to play with. I am a software/web programmer and I have never been working with verilog or whatever is used to program FPGA.
So is there a nice tutorial which explains how to start mining using FPGA. I do not want to create a fancy 2 - 10 connected FPGAs to run mine for profit, but I just want to start one FPGA and to see how it is working and what speed it is giving me.
I have checked the question: What software/hardware is required to mine with an FPGA?, but it does not provide information, I needed.
P.S: I also have seen this post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=9047.0 , but I hope to hear from someone who started to mine by himself and can share his experience.
So is there an easy to use tutorial for a not microsystem guy who wants to test mining. Or this is so complicated?
P.S. The vendor is
I have two different models:
- The model for the simple one is
- The model for the advanced one is
