Our Campaign is Live!

by Xiaosen Jiang

After many months of development and a long wait, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our Crowd Supply campaign!

UltraMiner is the first affordable, open-source FPGA development board powered by the latest Xilinx Kintex UltraScale+ FPGA. It ships with open-source cryptocurrency mining software, including pre-compiled bitstream files that work out-of-the-box with many popular cryptocurrencies. We also offer a developer version of the board – with PCIe support and additional IOs – that is perfect for prototyping high performance designs related to cryptography, software-defined radio, and machine learning.

We started building an affordable, open, FPGA-based cryptocurrency miner over a year ago. Since then, we have created several prototypes, iterating on and improving the design with each new version. While we are ready to begin hardware production, doing so will not end our development efforts. We will continue to add new mining algorithms and new software features to UltraMiner, and we hope that a community of cryptocurrency, open-source software, and FPGA enthusiasts will join us!

Thank you all for your support! If you haven’t already registered for updates, please do so below!
