I assume steamboat has a bunch (a boatload) of K16 stuff if anyone would like to make him an offer.

Actually, his assembly pre-buy customers own a bunch of parts... they aren't his to sell unless he's gonna refund the cost for them.

Yes,  I meant so that he could pass it on to his customers.

Yeah, sorry. I guess I'm just feeling a bit grumpy about the assembly/parts situation over at the SB group buy. :/

Hi All.

I was just wondering if there has been any progress on the K16 design? Or has it been abandoned?

Thanks

I'm pretty sure I replaced C274 with a 220pF cap and I believe R45 & R46 have 383 ohm resistors.

I shipped those out at about the time we determined some working values. Does the green LED flicker once you start cgminer? It won't start submitting work until it gets it from cgminer. Firmware is installed and it should run at 350 MHz.

From your description, I don't think cgminer is working correctly. This is how I build for linux:

git clone https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer.git
cd cgminer
git checkout klondike
CFLAGS="-g -W -Wall" ./autogen.sh --enable-klondike
make

I don't have cgminer working for windows yet, it crashes. :-(

I haven't given up on the K16. Still want to see it succeed.

So do I, I have almost 500 boards left... and boxes of parts.

I'm still here and haven't abandoned the project. I've had some disruptions over the last week as the tile guys that I've been waiting for since March finally arrived and started putting in floors. I've been moving stuff around from room to room, and it's a mess, stuff piled up everywhere. Timing couldn't have been worse, and my time diverted. I'm setting up my workbench and tools again and back working again, though the room I'm in still has no floor and I'll have to move back again in 2 days. If it were just me here I could probably have delayed them but my wife (and other family) presses on me as well. Plus I really need a floor.

I appreciate the kind words above and want to finalize this whole thing so I can move on. I feel like I'm stumbling around not knowing what's actually going to happen regarding Avalon chips, much disheartened by everything, but trying to keep a more positive outlook.

Have you considered redoing the Klondike board to use Bitfury chips like Burnin did? I think that would be a viable project. Bitfury chips seems to be all over the place with their pricing, but the main thing is they are out there, unlike Avalon which fell into a blackhole.

What's the average hashing rate (count only the accepted nonces ) when it's running at 350MHz and what's the HW rate?

That is really good news sensei. thank you for the instructions, and thank Kano for the cgminer builds.

Hopefully, I'll get those miners in soon and try it out. Keeping my fingers crossed. Maybe once all these kinks get ironed out, Klondike will be the first out of the gate for generation 2 (assuming Avalon pulls it's head out of where it is now)...

HW rate is high. This is what we are trying to get down. It can be 15-20% at 300 and over 30% at 350 MHz. A single unit can hash at about 4.8 MH/s or so, but it goes down when more than one is plugged in. That has to be a SW issue.

Is it really that slow?  Or did you mean Gh/s?

If the chips are running at 350mhz each then the hash rate should be around 16*350mhz = 5600mh.
With the high error rate the effective hash rate would be some what lower.
So the 4.8 must be Gh/s.

Great, I just got the email from my group buy that the avalon chips have been dispatched to me.
Unfortunately i'm minus pics and pcb's that were supposed to be sent by bkkcoins. :-(

Bkkcoins if you are out there, you can send our stuff. I don't care if the PICs are not programmed.

I'm in the same boat as you. Minus Ava's though. I'm holding out for some good news with the gen2's.

Has anyone been in personal communication with Bkk to let us know if he's alive or still working on this project ?

I have attempted to contact him several times via email but no reply.

Ideally one person who has his phone number should try and get hold of him to find out what is up. I hope he is ok.

I would hope both could be true! Not sure I want a zombie designing circuit boards...
