Hi guys,

Is there any way to get an old S3 blade running with a raspi that's already running cgminer?

This is just a thought as I have a half dead S3+ sitting under my desk.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply. All that info is way beyond my capabilities though. I was hoping for a more straight forward solution  Undecided

A straightfoward solution for hacking a piece of proprietary electronics with a proprietary multi-signal data and power connection and undocumented communication protocol to work with an off-the-shelf mini computer?

I was going to scoff at the idea, but actually around here that's a reasonable request. But around here, technical competency is also a typical precondition. It shouldn't be that difficult (in fact, mostly a software problem) to run pretty much any AntMiner board off a straightforward USB adapter, provided you aren't concerned about temperature control (since sensor interfacing happens through connections independent from ASIC communication). It's probably possible to build a microcontroller interface that convolves all the sensor and chip-comm traffic into a single connection to be relayed to a generic computer.

 Shocked. Whooooosh!!

That went straight over my head  Cheesy

After reading it three times. I've deciphered some of the lingo and worked out that it's not that hard, just need the right bits and a bit of software jigerypokery to get it to talk in a similar language (well not about how hot it is anyway).

I bow to your superior knowledge as anything along these lines is well beyond me. Although saying that I'm prepared to give some things a go aslong as I can follow step by step. I am only in the building trade but always interested in computers in general, just never to any real depth.
