They are both for power, BFL stated. Just in case your computer isn't able to supply enought power trough one single USB port.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:
Bitcointa.lk - Replace "Bitcointalk.org" with "Bitcointa.lk" in this url to see how this page looks like on a proper forum (Announcement Thread)
Hashfast.org - Wiki for screwed customers

When is the Jalapeno getting FCC approval?

Maybe two weeks? We are waiting for the test lab to issue the test report.

With the bump in power requirements on the MR and the new screen, we had to make changes, although the new screen is already certified.  We are doing all the devices at once, since they all share the same board.


Does that mean you have a functioning prototype you sent to the test lab?

MrTeal, you're an idiot! We all know that a physical working unit is not required. Only a sketch rendering the finish product.



But seriously, excellent question.

Wasn't it decided that these pics, while exciting, were still not of a functional unit as they are waiting on the asic chips?

That's simply impossible, for the FCC has one and BFL should be getting approval in a couple weeks. Make that two, for UnderwriterLabs (UL) has one also so that it'll be UL Listed/Approval. Now quit spreading FUD. The same process will apply for the other rigs as well, up to and including the $29K one.

Image the conversation at UL when that big ass rig arrives.

UL Guy 1: What the heck do we have here?
UL Guy 2: Never seen anything like it. Ready to plug it in?
UL Guy 1: I'm not pluggin' it in. You plug it in.
UL Guy 2: Fuck you, man! Hey! I got an idea. Let's get Mikey.
UL Guy 1: Yea, Mikey! He'll plug in anything.
UL Guy 1 & UL Guy 2 (in unison): Hey, Mikey!
UL Guy 2: Wait a second! We don't have to plug it in.
UL Guy 1: Why not?
UL Guy 2: Don't you see? It don't have an FCC sticker, so we don't have to inspect it.
UL Guy 1: Great! Send it back to the girls over at Butterfly Labs.
UL Guy 2: What I would give to watch one of their hot babes on the assembly line.

My mistake. I thought they had boards/samples, but were still waiting on the chips. Oops.

I love this. Take a look at the current Single's heatsink:



It was later upgraded to this heatsink setup:



Those dinky little heatsinks were originally only supposed to dissipate 20 Watts, but had to be upgraded to handle the actual heat output of 80 Watts. Now, they're actually designing a proper heatsink for the 60Watts they know the Single will draw. Pics from http://bitcoinmagazine.net/bfl-confirms-65nm-process-for-sc-lineup/ :




I can see why they say that heat will no longer be an issue for these.

Just remember to peel off the label before you stick it to something.

The label backing seems a bit OTT, though.

There better not be a heat issue when they've got those sexy heatsinks on the boards Tongue

Underestimating customer stupidity is a common mistake. They've apparently learned their lesson already.

I'm just going to keep repeating "it's an Altera HardCopy" because I haven't the slightest clue what I'm talking about.

Back in the days of s.478 a friend of mine installed the cooling with the plastic cover without even notice it. I spend some time looking for the problem why a new PC is shutdown before I can get to BIOS

Can someone from BFL please clarify if at this moment their ASICs are packaged and delivered to the US?

That is unlikely.

First of all, the label on the heat sink says "Please remove label before you use it." This is bad English... I am assuming they are made in china.

Heat sinks come in so many different shapes and sizes, it doesn't make sense to me for them to spend the extra dough to create a custom heat sink.

"Josh Zerlan, a BFL representative, expects to have chips in hand by the end of November and begin initial shipments shortly after."
