Interesting that each ASIC has its own reset.
But is not connected. Tied high. I think this was for testing.

There is a capacitor on the pin. Obviously that's for delaying the power up of the chip.

Looks like an RC network with about 16 MS reset delay.

Much appreciated Yifu.  

We would also appreciate it if, due to the enormously time-sensitive nature of receiving Batch #2 or Batch #3 units, you gave us some kind of option to expedite shipping.  It's been >90 days since my order and I feel my brain literally melting each day that goes by.

TL;DR - Let me throw money at you to expedite shipping, or I could literally fly myself to Hong Kong and meet someone somewhere in the city to pick this up.  (Hopefully before ASICminer dominates the blockchain)

geez.

thatta boy!

Can someone with enough knowledge tell me if a user that has avalon chips, can take this plans and let a company create a miner for him? Is it possible or is more needed?

Can it be done DIY, if you manage to get the parts?

And the software, firmware and so on is it freely available? I guess the miners that run with avalons would run with this miner too, right?

Today/this weekend, I'm going to investigate the building out of units based precisely on the reference design, and see if it'd be worth it to organize a group buy. This is hopefully assuming that Bitsyncom will be providing software. I haven't had a chance to look at the schematics in depth, but I didn't see a microcontroller, but rather an FPGA. Reverse-engineering what's happening inside it would probably prove to be a major pain.

I am currently working on pricing based on the layout. What's needed is the bom. The com protocol and software are needed to verify the design, and have been promised shortly.

Once all the info has been released I will have numbers for assembled clones.

An fpga sound expensive. The other miner developers dont need one. For example the klondike-project (see my signature). So im really wondering if the alternate design will be cheaper than the original one at the end. Interesting this all...

It's just for control and data pre-processing. It's not for hashing.

Yes, the FPGA is an expensive part of the original Avalon design. Should the Klondike solution successfully eliminate the need for one, the miner cost will go down.

Sample chips will be sent out 4 weeks after batch purchase.

It looks like I may be working with a PCB assembler in California... How does one get in line for a "test" chip?

Find someone who purchased a batch who's willing to give you one of their samples.

Speculating here... but my guess is a minimum of 32 and a maximum of 100, per 10K order.
