I got that by e-mail.

They must still love me!  Kiss

Heh, heh.................

I was banned from the BFL forums but they still send me offers, including this one.

Will it never end?

My $.02.

Wink

What didn't you report it as a Phishing scam?

Should be fucking mandatory for bitcoin ASIC companies to show a photo of their board otherwise not be allowed to advertise for SOMETHING THAT CANNOT BE PROVEN TO EXIST, AKA VAPOURWARE, AKA FALSE ADVERTISING


Yes? Maybe no?

Right now i searching the forums for pcb manufacturers and designs but haven't found a thing :-)


Wasps.

Might be interested in our group.

Tape Out?

Has it even been completed.

From completed tape out you still have to wait 15 weeks from BFL's own estimates to a "ramping" up of the shipping / production regardless of when you ordered.

All orders are at least 3.75 months away from shipping from today will always be 3.75 months away until they say they have moved beyond tapeout. If anyone has evidence of the completed tapeout that be great to know.


December
January
February
3rd Week of March for the those who ordered first or who have the biggest orders.


Don't get fooled. Read the page and the week to week timeline. Read and do the math yourself.

https://products.butterflylabs.com/300-gh-bitcoin-mining-card.html

Code:
Shipping Schedule

This is a Pre-Order product which is not yet shipping.  If you're uncomfortable waiting until the development
is complete and the product is shipped, do NOT pre-order this product. Perhaps undesirable, but this is a
pre-order market.  Customers flatly demand to get in line for the new technology before it's finished
development.  This has created a lot of drama for the manufacturers but it's something we simply have
to deal with.  All manufacturers in this space have experienced some degree of delay with their first
generation ASIC.  Every last one of them, so we're reluctant to give a specific delivery date.  
However, this is our second generation, so we have much greater clarity on the process and we feel our
timeline to begin shipments towards the end of the year is solid.

Here's a breakdown of the timeline.

+ We're now in at the final stage of development (Tapeout) and are sending wafers into production at the
foundry in the next few weeks[/b]

+ Foundry production takes 10 weeks

+ Bumping, Slicing & BGA packaging takes approximately 2 weeks

+ Initial shipments begin and ramp up to full capacity over the following 3 weeks

Since this is our 2nd generation ASIC chip, we're free from the pitfalls sometimes associated with a first generation
design. Testing systems, Bumping masks, Substrates & under fill engineering are all carryovers from our last version
of the chip, so they're ready for high volume production once the wafers are ready. The importance of this can't be
overstated when considering schedule certainty.  Nevertheless, please do not purchase this product if you are
unwilling to wait for the product to complete its development.

10+2+3 = 15 Weeks or 3.75 Months.


Don't forget the terms:

Code:
Pre-Order Terms: This is a pre-order. 28nm ASIC bitcoin mining hardware products
are shipped according to placement in the order queue, and delivery may take 3 months or more after order.
All sales are final.

Don't forget a wasp for this chip  http://alpha-t.net/product/scrypt-asic-miner/    A Litecoin (Scrypt)  wasp would be awesome. I would love to be involved in anything i can do to help the project. Testing would be cool too. I live in chapel hill, nc  right in the research triangle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Research_Triangle home of redhat and more tech cos. Also I would fall into the hobbyist category  

We haven't "forgotten" we just need the chip specs, chips and one of the half a dozen EE's in the collective, or a new EE keen on scrypt to join us and then go mental on the design based off our existing templates. Also we already discussed plans for scrypt hashing Wasps as evidenced in the following page in our project. Ideally we would love to see our Hive mining both Sha256 and Scrypt at the same time.

Code:
Wasp Controller and Maintenance Software

Summary

The Wasp Project Collective Wasps are self-contained hashing blades utilizing various hashing ASICs, and adapting each
of them to a single unified power, command, and control structure. Several programs residing on the controlling PC or
embedded computer interact with the Wasps through the common protocols for:

+ Mining eCoins, not limited to BTC
+ Testing and configuring the Wasps, both individually and "Collectively" (of course )
+ Performing in-place firmware patching or upgrading.
+ Purchasing and managing licenses for the Wasps
+ Debugging firmware on the Wasps, while running one of the above programs in parallel.
 
Specific Programs:

Mining Controller

The primary function of the Wasp is to mine eCoins. A standard miner such as cgminer or bfgminer can manage Wasps
of any variant that supports double-SHA256 hashing. In the future we expect to also simultaneously handle SCRYPT
Wasps, with a second mining controller running in parallel, using the same driver for both mining programs. Since the
Wasps self-identify, mining programs can determine which of the resident Wasps's endpoints can support the type of
mining the program was configured for, and only connect to those endpoints, leaving the others available for mining
programs with different configurations.

Each Wasp is designed within the overarching project so there could actually be a team we put together now to run with the Scrypt hashing Wasp. All we need are keen people to push it forward. Do you want to help us develop the first Scrypt Alpha-T Wasp? PM or Email me and I can add you to the project page. If you want to see more documentation for Wasps and Hives and the current state of the prototype and even discuss that with our EE's then being a member is a good option.

I would advise any user contemplating paste or thinner pads to first have a very close look at how well their die tops are aligned

A simple solution to uneven die height? Thicker heat sink pad.

Why are so many of the die heights uneven?

Or those thicker pads were cheap in bulk.

Looking forward to seeing what you guys put together - I'm no engineer so I'll stay out of this conversation.

We need everyone in ... engineers, and hobbyists all are welcome.

2871  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BFL Product Failures / Underperformance. on: November 26, 2013, 06:06:35 PM
The thermal pad applied to most of these units are just WRONG.

Given the pictures available they are way way way too thick. You wonder why people are pulling units apart and putting their own thermal compound on or trying to get better air flow? How can you get that wrong? Seriously?



2872  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Official BITMINE CoinCraft series 28nm ASIC miners thread on: November 26, 2013, 05:37:58 PM
What are you guys thoughts about this hardware VS the Black Arrow stuff?


Price, heat, chip package and delivery date.

All factors you need to consider when you do the comparison.

2873  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BFL Product Failures / Underperformance. on: November 26, 2013, 05:06:18 PM
What no technical comment about using heat pads that were WAY too thick?

Sad.

How is your Freicoin going?

Personally I recently enjoyed the bump in price and the fluidity of the difficulty filter.

All we need now is more http://fre.icoin.ch/ people auctioning stuff off here so I can buy things with my FRC.

Recipe for BFL heat sink pads...




The secret make sure you do not roll your FONDANT too thin.

More evidence to support some 'wonky' heat sink pads from BFL

Re: Normal / Safe Operating Temperatures for BFL Gear?

I reflashed a Jalepeno. Before flashing, it ran around 43c, hashing ~5.2GHz. After flashing AND removing the outer case and applying new thermal paste, it rarely goes over 37c, hashing ~8.3Ghz.

Environment (before and after flashing) = 20c, 45% RH, with a 6" fan blowing towards the Jalepeno.

It was badly pasted?

Damn slackers at butterfly!!!

The unit is on its way to cranky4u, hoping he can fix it. I decided not to return to BFL due to the time/cost for shipping and customs delays. My fingers are crossed.  Smiley

Wish you luck for a fast fix and back to happy mining.

Why must they replace the fans? Is a mod or just because the original fans are crap?
