Nist5 Algorithm on AtomMiner Platform

Here’s another update on algorithms/coins supported by AtomMiner. Today we’ve managed to fit Nist5 algorithm created with HLS into KC705 kit board. Since Nist5 is pretty complex and consist of Keccak512, Blake512, Skein512, Gr0estl512 and JH512 algos, the hashing speed is something we will keep working on. At the time of writing, Nist5 is doing approximately 240-300kH/s with power consumption of 6W at the wall. Project sources are available at GitHub.

Here’s the implementation details and real life test run:
