RHP4K Series

This board has been discontinued. Please contact bunnie@mit.edu if you would like a copy of the gerber files so you can build them yourself!

The RHP4K series of reconfigurable hardware processors (RHP) is affordable, easy to use, and powerful; it is ideal for experimenters, teachers, students, and hackers. It excels at applications with inherent parallelism, such as password cracking, brute force decryption, cellular automata, and finite element analysis. This RHP technology is capable of providing performance on some applications in excess of a DEC Alpha 21164 running at 600 MHz at less than one-tenth the cost.

For more information on RHP technology please see the document "RHP Technology".

For product information on the RHP4K, please see the RHP4K Kit Assembly Guide and the RHP4K User's Guide.
