FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) Miner
The FPGA miner represents a specialized cryptocurrency mining device that employs a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for its mining activities. Being “field-programmable” means that customers can customize the device upon receiving it, configuring its gate array and installing unique software. In terms of performance, FPGA miners typically outperform graphics processing unit (GPU) miners, while also being more flexible compared to application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) miners, which are designed for specific mining algorithms. However, it’s important to note that utilizing FPGA miners generally requires a higher level of technical proficiency compared to other mining rig alternatives.
