I am thinking of FPGA for an algorithm of mine, but lack of any experience with FPGAs.
The activity is number crunching, no fancy IO or A/D conversion.
I send a very large number, it crunch, and I get answer as a single number. One can think of it as integer factorization.
Crunching is made of large additions, subtractions, shift operations (*2 and /2), increments/decrements and logical operation and bits testing.
May be an embedded ARM processor to handle communication and data conversion.
Algorithm can be adapted for treading.
It is for hobby, so no real budget.
What hardware/software would you recommend ?
