I'd stick with using a header.
The general public being what they are you just know someone would try to power the pod using a USB jack if it has one...

I second that, at least a header pad/hole behind the USB jack if you go for it. Tongue

Not enough room for both. It's an either/or. This thing is already super busy.

Sounds like things are going well. Not that it matters at this point, but I like the USB A option.

Hopefully that image is visible.

So I've verified that all the hashing parts of the current version board still work, which is good because I moved basically everything around.

In the front left corner you can see holes for a 4-position header. That's where 5V comes out to power a Pi, and it'll be replaced with some kind of USB jack.

You can also see the empty pads for the 8-SOIC where the microcontroller would go if I hadn't bypassed it on this one. That guy would control fan speed and automatically power-cycle the chips if the string locks up or overheats.

Free space on the board is getting pretty tight so it'll be fun figuring out the last few tweaks. All the jacks and such are final positions, and the board is final size, so this is a decent representation of the form-factor. The future Bitfury pod will be mechanically compatible.

I'll be sending a few out to established resellers and my coders as samples, working up about a dozen more that'll probably be for sale on here in a few weeks. Whenever I have time, things are pretty backed up here.

But that's the present state of things.

Image isn't visible, but thanks for trying (I assume that is a pic of the miner?). Better having a lot on the miner and effort than the low-quality crap most big miner manufacturers put out nowadays. I like the heat failsafe, hopefully it actually works unlike some Antminers that don't stop the miner above the set temperature 50% of the time  Smiley

Still doesn't work for some reason, saying you need to upgrade your account for third party viewing. Maybe it's just me?

Weird, it was never a problem before. Including four months ago when I started this thread. Had that account for the better part of a decade, rarely gets used, but my upload at the shop is low enough that if I host photos on my own server they don't load right on here half the time. Guess I'll go back to doing that. Grumble grumble free service grumble grumble.

The temp sensor on this miner is right in the center of the board, underneath the heatsink with the chips, so it should read more accurately than, say, the S5 temp sensor. The cutoff is also imiplemented in microcontroller firmware on the board, certainly more failure-proof than a check box on a cgi webconfig jumping through various loops to an OS interfacing with half a dozen hardware something-or-others.

photobucket wants you to pay $499/year to share photos to 3rd parties/hotlink them.

Because of this, 85% of the forums/internet now have "please upgrade your account for 3rd party hosting" image.
to bad if they were images from 15 years ago, that person may not be alive to "upgrade your account"

which really help a lot when you need images to show what screw/bolt/wire you need to budge

upload the image to here, or use imgur... till they sell out like photobucket.. I don't think Sarah and Alan (both owners of imgur) will drop their baby, but money dose change minds..

postimg.org is also a good free site I've used for years. You can either open an account and manage your images or just upload and get a link with no account. Clean interface without intrusive ads.
