The one intended for HDSDR is here http://www.hdsdr.de/hardware.html and maybe the later one linked has more features?
The HDSDR one is integrated, maybe the later one is not.
It probably depends on whether you are satisfied with the integrated one or want features offered by the other.

the latest _u8 version (the link I posted above) has extended features.

it has:
- integrated DC removal filter (optional, can be disabled with a check box)
- automatic direct sampling/tuner mode switch (Auto Q and Auto I modes) depending on the current frequency
- integrated Bias-T checkbox which allows to show the current Bias-T state and allows to enable/disable Bias-T on the fly, with no needs to run external programs.
- also it was build with the fresh libusb libraries and can run on a new motherboards with USB3 where standard ExtIO fails to run
