So it appears to me that Monero/CryptoNote mining has gained a lot of popularity lately, and this has led many people to this website. Let me note that LabVIEW FPGA is a proprietary tool that comes with a 30-day Evaluation. After that, you have to spin up a new virtual machine and reinstall LabVIEW to keep your installation alive. However, when it comes to FPGA development, LabVIEW is the best tool out there.
Sure, it may not support the latest board from Xilinx or Digilent or whoever, but what it does support it supports well.
Take the PXIe-6592 board. I was able to take this board and to implement stage 3 of the CryptoNight algorithm while I was on a “diversion” from my normal FPGA development side projects.
Now I am hearing that Monero is profitable, but only via an FPGA. Well, let me go back to my source code and see if I can provide some benchmarks.
