I see they discuss FFT in FPGA. Well, if suchdevice will be implemented maybe we could use it too.
Our FFT sizes more different, from 8k (2^13) to 128k (2^17) or even more in SETI large/current autocorr implementation.
Looks like Einstein uses longer one, 2^22.

Seems you and I both made our payments through Amazon 26 October 2012, so your number is probably close to my 3729. I wouldn't know where to look that up, but it was on the shipment notification I got last Friday morning. Being about 300 km. from Adapteva's home office I received the card in the mail yesterday. I won't be ready to do anything with it for at least a couple of weeks, though.

You'll have had an email early on with the number, I believe you can also get it from a kickstarter app, but I don't know which one.

Hm... interesting should I deal with customs too later and how much it will cost...
Board shipped!

BTW

Import VAT 40.81
interesting how "value added tax" was computed.  Shipment should be marked as "gift". From what such quite big number comparable with card manufacturing cost came ???
