Just a guess here, but he's probably a student?  The falling off the grid so to speak seems to correlate with school starting.  Believe it or not most of the people on here probably have real jobs and/or school of which have nothing to do with their bitcoin projects on here.  Fall time (at least fall time here in the US) is a pretty busy time of the year for most people.  Getting blasted with PMs and Emails I am sure there are a lot that get ignored and/or forgotten about.

Retired.

And I suspect like everyone else crest fallen given the monumental cock up that is Avalon chips not shipping. As suggested we all need to give BKK time to regain his feet, and get that floor done then when he is good and ready he will resurface. I to hope he is well and no matter what I want to thank him for all the work he has put in a better effort could not be asked for to be honest. Let the man recoup his sanity and come back at his own pace and terms.

Would love to drop some Minion chips into The Wasp!

Can we contact you to discuss our teams plans for boards using the Minion chip?

3405  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: So was Monarch development the cause for BFL being so slow ordering 65nm parts? on: September 22, 2013, 01:40:57 AM
The more important questions are "Who cares ?" and "Why does anyone continue to support Butterfly Labs ?"

Blackarrow anyone?


Code:
This is an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) designed to mine Bitcoins only. It is not useful for anything else.
This product is intended for OEM manufacturers and should not be purchased by individuals that have no technical expertise
on how to design the hardware and software to use this ASIC. Apart from the Datasheet that describes very
technical information on how to use it, no other technical support will be offered by Black Arrow free of charge.

All pre-orders are guaranteed to be protected against any price decrease. If at any time, during the pre-order period,
we drop the price under what you have already paid, you will be compensated by receiving more ASICs.
Example: If you have purchased an ASIC with 25% discount and we offer later 40% discount, your order will be
recalculated at 40% discount and you will receive more ASICs. Then, if we offer later only 10% discount you will
still get order as if you've ordered at 40% discount.

Guaranteed: 64GHash/second @ TT corner (Typical - Typical).

Preliminary specifications:

Node process: 28nm High Performance Process
Package: High Performance Flip Chip BGA
Frequency: 1.6 GHz
Voltage: 0.85V
Efficiency (including leakage): less than 0.5 W/Ghash/second

This ASIC supports internal commands for over-clocking and under-clocking.

It has been designed to be:

Over-clocked with around 20%. Increasing the voltage might be required.
If voltage is increased, the efficiency will drop.
Under-clocked to obtain better efficiency you can drop the voltage.
If the voltage is dropped the clock frequency will have to be dropped resulting in slower hashing speeds.

Note: the preliminary specifications are currently reported by our design tools.
They have not yet been proven in a laboratory and might be subject to change, although we do not expect it to vary much.

Group buys: Group buys are not permitted. We will cancel any order that we discover that is a group buy
and will refund the payment minus 10% that we will charge for our time wasted in this matter.
By placing an order for this item you agree with the above.

Note we are posted in the group buy section but we are not a group buy per se we are a B2B purchaser.

For us who wouldn't be able to attend to this hangout please provide the recording if possible. Thanks.

I will do a redacted minutes for all and post it here. Whatever "super top secret" we can't leak stuff will be pulled... but I think people want to hear more about the project  planning, so for sure I will get that up as soon as possible.

We will try and have different times so other can make the next meeting... if this time and day was a bit much.

Want to get in on a the ground floor of a new ASIC miner development project that is working from board to production miner using the Coincraft A1 and the Black Arrow Minion 28nm ASIC chip?

Drop me a PM or email for details.

  • There's a good chance when you get your package your shit will be broken. It is packaged exceptionally poorly for such an expensive piece of equipment.
  • If your shit is broken you probably won't get a replacement for several months at which point your investment will no longer be of any value.
  • Just go ahead and go buy a power supply and have it ready for when your product arrives and save yourself the headache.
  • Whichever pool you're on, if it's not specifically set up for ASIC mining, you probably won't be able to hash at full speed because getworks will be too slow so pick a pool that is specifically for ASIC mining.
  • The Single SC is VERY LOUD. It sounds like a salon grade hair dryer. You'll want to put it somewhere that you won't be sleeping.

1) If you're PSU is broken, send them an email. One of my Little Single PSUs was dead, and they sent me a replacement. No big deal.
2) That said, I did configure a server PSU to have a bunch of PCIe power connectors, so I can power 4 SC Singles off one PSU. Best part? It only cost me $60.
3) The stock PSU should work fine, and has been working for me for several months.
4) See here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=104664.0 If you're not using a pool that's "ASIC Ready", you need a new pool.
5) The SC Single us loud, but it's not hair dryer loud. Yes, I have slept in the same room as 2 of them going, and it's not unreasonable. You can minimize the noise by running it outside of it's case and without the side fans, but that's a more advanced and extreme measure. Your best bet? Stick it somewhere cool and isolated where you don't have to listen to it. Obv I don't run all of mine in the middle of my living room, but instead somewhere secure and separate, where I barely notice the noise.

My 60 GH/sec showed up today from a Oct 4, 2012 order. They have picked up some steam, I didn't think I'd see it for a while. Averaging around 58 GH/sec and as loud as everyone said.

Nearly 12 months... ouch. Gotta hurt.

Meeting Agenda

Greetings and Salutation

+ Those interested in working through this long multiple month group buy should provide a short profile to everyone at the meeting.
+ We will cover the key positions from design of the board, software, and fabrication as well as community PR with The Wasp members.

The Wasp

+ What direction is this project going to take?
+ Which chip?
+ How will it be powered etc and what sort of upcycling will this miner be capable of when complete?
+ A very rough timeline from design to prototype and shipping finished units will be addressed?

Financials

+ What is the production price point, ROI required when it is delivered on time and late?
+ We need to have a relatively accurate estimate that will bind the design to the reality so we need rough estimates now and provide them at the meeting.
+ What sort of membership numbers do we need?
+ What sort of initial investment is required to get us going on this project in the coming weeks?

Timeline

+ What are the milestones and when do they need to be met?

Control of the BOM / Gerbers

+ Who has access to the sensitive project documents and what are agreed parameters for sharing this collective work?
+ We do not want one member to simply hijack this project and then produce units without agreement so we need to determine strict controls over the work product.

(Unfortunately I have learned, very recently, the hard way not everyone has the groups interest at heart during these longer term development projects and you need to SPELL this clause out clearly right at the beginning.)

---------------

This is off the top of my head. Feel free to add or subtract from the agenda. I volunteer to keep records as secretary for this meeting.

Who would have thunk it possible?

Needs to be a Custom Hardware COMPLAINTS section... it's time has come.
3415  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: 55nm USB Miners, as good as it gets? on: September 20, 2013, 04:06:37 PM
Everything is going to get cheaper, smaller and more energy efficient... problem then becomes millions of dollars of recently fabricated ASICs just become bricks. There needs to be some perspective on this and expect manufacturers to have 2nd uses or somehow make miners that can be upcycled.

3418  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: 55nm USB Miners, as good as it gets? on: September 20, 2013, 10:23:26 AM

Thanks!

Just so I know I'm not going crazy, did you edit your original post to include the link?  Or did I just not see it the first time?  Lol.

Ya dude... sorry I should have noted that.

Hi Mrb,
they are currently running on bfgminer, Linux, Ubuntu, Win7 all support
I believe Con may be working on cgminer (for BPMC guys).

cheers,
kev


Yes BPMC has sent a miner to CKolivas.
