Special thanks to fpgaminer for the original bitcoin mining code, teknohog for his
serial code, also OrphanedGland, udif, TheSeven, makomk, and newMeat1 as credited on
the fpgaminer bitcoin thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=9047.0 and ngzhang
for his Icarus/Lancelot boards and github. Not forgetting bluedragon747 for blakecoin!

Ports are available for icarus/lancelot, ztex 1.15x, 1.15y and Cairnsmore CM1.
The code currently achieves around 780MHash/s at 195Mhz on the lancelot board and around
1.5Gh/s on the quad boards (1.15y, CM1). All code is in the experimental folder and the
bitstreams links for download are in bitstreams.txt

All are supported by a modified cgminer 3.1.1 for use solo or on pool, there is also a
python miner for the Icarus/Lancelot board (solo mining, or pool via getwork only).
