Update:

Assembly status:
We have completed both board level and final assembly. Unit testing has been delayed due to firmware issues and lack of ktest utility. We have been testing with rough values using the old firmware, which will assist us in expediting final testing, which expect to complete within two days.

The firmware bug causing high error rates has been discovered and corrected as of early this morning. We are continuing to run tests, but believe the base firmware is now stable. We have also greatly reduced the performance issues when connecting multiple units within CGminer. Currently, we are running stable at 300mhz at 4.9gh/s, with less than 0.5% errors.

We are continuing to work on the USB bootloader, which we hope to have finalized this week. Once the USB bootloader has been completed, we will begin work on the I2C connection and optimizing the firmware, while continuing to optimize CGminer.

We have received requests to ship the units in their current state, without the ability to update the firmware via USB. We are now accepting requests to ship units as-is, but advise against it. This option should only be considered if you have a large order and are comfortable with programming. Currently, the only method of flashing the units is to use a Pickit3 Pic programmer with a suggested pogo pin adapter, connected to a host running MPLAB IPE/IDE. This is a fairly complex process for those unfamiliar with programming, and materials costs are ~$80. Units shipped without the USB bootloader will require initially flashing the units using the on board ICSP pads to update the firmware to allow USB updates.

If you would like to request your units shipped as-is, please ensure the shipping address provided on your liquidsyndesigns.com account is correct, and reply to this email with the subject “Please ship my units without USB bootloader”.

Assembly refunds:

We have been working on the assembly refund process as time permits, and will be sending an email with instructions in the next few days. We appreciate your patience in this matter.

Doing my good old "Paid GH/s" calculation:

Elapsed = 12hr 7min 26sec = 43646 sec

Paid H/s = 2^32 * Diff A / Elapsed = 2^32 * 105775 / 43646 = 10,408,746,866 or 10.4 Paid GH/s

So each KLN is 5.2 Paid GH/s at 333 Mhz

Also note HW% = 8 / (8 + 1436 + 105775) = a tiny 0.0075%

Edit: of course that Rejects would be lower on a normal pool - they are of course higher due to p2pool 30s LP time.

Edit2: N.B. the code is current of my git and I've committed it to ckolivas' git master also - for anyone interested

Very, very sweet! I'm excited to see this, even though I refunded for my Avalon order :/

No way dude power supply of klondike can not stand to such high load and over voltage is needed
Let me tell you hex16a clocked to 500 with voltage set to 1.48 is making about 7700  Wink

It's really wonderful to see the great work all you guys done.
Have been following this thread from the beginning.
This is the best result of this project.

I don't have Avalon chips any more, but still have many K16 parts including the PCB, components, heatsinks, fans, frames with 8 K16 slots, etc.
If somebody are interested, please PM me.

Am interested in some parts to DIY a few of these (I know it is a lot of work, my labour is cheap).  Can anyone in Nth America sell me some parts, am looking for 4 x (PCB and semiconductors - I can't imagine anyone but mouser/digikey is going to sit down and split up all the passives).

I have assembly purchased from Steamboat but I with my chips refunded I don't think I'll see any parts for some time.

I want to make a 8 chips per board variant, then play with the voltage a little as per hex16.

Now I need to figure out how to get this firmware onto my Mitten Mining K16s.

The ones I that I have running (replaced C274) are only limping along around 2.5ghps now.

What he said.

Personally, I'd given the K16 up for dead based on the technical challenges and the loss of the primary developer, combined with the Yifu chip fiasco. Major kudos to all involved in finishing this project!

I'd also like to point out Steamboat's remarkable integrity and perseverance. He could have cut and run a long time ago, but he stuck it out and is holding up his end of the deal. Great job Steve!

Congrats, It so good that the end of the battle is almost won.

I would love to still build one of these, I have a pcb.
Would be great if someone with leftover components would sell some kits although not economical am sure.

I suspect the pic shortage is over. You should be able to upload the the bom to mouser and work through the parts selection to build yourself a kit...

I just received 50 avalon1s pretty cheap and pcbs are on their way. After I successfully assemble them, I would like to try out some overclocking, with extreme cooling (read: dry ice). Someone mentioned OC above, and was shot down. The K16 uses a standard PC PSU, so as long as one is used that can dish out the increased wattage, we should be alright with replacing the clock and lowering voltage resistors to the chips, right?
