BkkCoins,

We have received Avalon sample chips. We did get about 10 K16 boards manufactured locally as well. We want to assemble one board to help with development and testing. We have resources here that can help push the project forward.

Can you upload the silk screen for the components (those nice little labels that indicate which component is to be placed where on the board)? And if possible XY data that can be fed to an SMT machine?

The basic maths being Ohm's law. Anyway, you need to pay attention to wiring and plug amperage capacities if you use a lot of splitters to feed your boards from a high amp/watt rail. You may have to modify the psu.

For those who dont know this may help...

V                  W
----------        --------
I   X  R           V  X  I

W= Watts        V= Voltage     I= Current  R= Resistance

Therefore:

V = I X R  :  I = V/R  :  R = V/I

Example

If Voltage = 24V and Resistance = 1.2 Ohms  then

I=   V/R      I=   24/1.2   I =  20 A

W= V x I    W= 24 x 20  W= 480 W

Good operator can program this preaty fast- a few hours
By silk scren you meen stencil ?

Not the stencil, but the silkscreen used the print those little label (C1, C2, R1, R2 etc) on the board, so that the people assembling the board can know which Capacitor goes where and which Resistor goes where etc.

This one only has the markings for the Avalon chips, and fan/i2c/icsp header. Doesn't have any other components.

I wonder why not, its impossible to assemble a board if you don't know which component goes where. Of course I can look at the datasheets of the controllers and the components to figure it out, but since BkkCoins already has it, doing it myself would be just a waste of time.

It's good you have samples already, trouble is that you will get the board finished and tested, then just sit there for months waiting on a real supply of chips. I guess you can mine on the prototype in the meantime to help pay overheads.

I, for one, am grateful there are people putting time and money into this design, thanks Terrahash!  A lot of us are depending on this design, a board re-roll will easily eat a week or two, the earlier the better!

terrahsah & marto74 are you guys building this before BkkCoins has a chance to debug his design?
I would not put the ASIC's on the board until the power supply section is confirmed working.

I believe BkkCoins has yet to receive any sample ASICs. Maybe you could send him one or two ASAP priority. I’m sure I’m not the only one here who would be willing to help pay for shipping and reimburse you for the parts - or replace them from a later sample shipment - I’m expecting samples from steamboat batch #2.

I also would like to help with testing, but BkkCoins really should be highest priority.

We can certainly send him a few chips.

BkkCoins, please let me know your address info in my inbox if you still haven't received nay chips. I would be happy to send you a few for testing.

Thanks so much, it looks like you guys are the first to actually receive sample chips!

Wow. This is news to me. And frankly it terrifies me that so much has been invested in my design when I haven't even been able to verify it.  However, I'm not going to stand in the way despite the feeling that control is being wrestled away.

I'm ready to release everything I have along with a proper open source license but first I would need two things - 1. A public commitment that any info derived from testing/debugging  will be submitted back quickly so that everyone has access in a timely fashion. 2. A disclosure regarding any independent firmware and driver development and whether you plan to use proprietary code to enter the market first.

The lack of past communication makes me concerned that your main goal is to gaining competitive advantage, and that my materials will be used towards shutting everyone else committed to assembling units, and who have been communicating with me daily, out of the market.

Yes. Please take note here. I'm pretty sure that both involved know what they're doing but if anyone else out there has been making boards off the gerbers, then at least fully test the power supply under some load before risking actual chips.

I'm explicitly stating that I won't be held responsible for anything when I haven't even been yet able to test anything myself.

Are you going to release your PC-PIC protocol? I'd like to use the same protocol in my project to reduce the amount of work needed on the miner side.

It's already up on github in the Technical Reference PDF. I still need to add some data format details.

I have just the beginnings of a cgminer driver but my work there stalled after I got more focussed on the hardware. I have some plans in that area but have been unable to get back to them.

Awesome, I guess I should actually check out your repo
