1  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Intro: U.S.-based ASIC design group w/ patent on reducing electrical consumption on: December 07, 2017, 06:54:22 PM
3B Technologies (St. Louis Park, Minnesota, US) is a team building ASICs using their patented technology that allows hashing to occur with less electrical consumption. Their first ASIC will be SHA-256 (for Cryptotech), with plans to enter X-11, Scrypt and perhaps other mining algos at a later time.

Cryptotech’s novel unipolar logic only utilizes one type of transistor – either NMOS or PMOS only.

In the case of silicon circuits, NMOS only is chosen for its much higher mobility compared to PMOS.

Manufacturing costs are lower since the fabrication is simplified (no need for doping of PMOS transistors).
