I have been to their store. Do *you* understand what you are looking at?
This is from the OP:

Once the orders for fully assembled AVALON supplied ASICs reaches a threshold then we will order a batch of chips from Avalon.

How do you interpret the items on their store that claim to include Avalon supplied ASIC's for an additional $80, along with the OP's statements in this same thread?

It's only the hashing card. Unless you own an Avalon, or all the other parts within an Avalon, it is of little use, even with the ASIC chips mounted.

agree, it says the product with Avalon Supplied Asic Chip with notes below the price.
"Order a AVALON ASIC chip through us!
High Quality!
Ready to ship now!"

Questions will be whether they've ever ordered any chips yet.

They have four products on their site. One of them lets you order the PCB with the ASIC chips, without supplying them yourself. It says that in plain text on the site, and the OP has stated it as well. Can you please explain why you think otherwise?

You can't mine directly with only a card.
These are not Bkk designs.

#################         TEASER         ####################

Sitarow and myself had an extremely productive night last night.

Here are a couple teaser pics.

I am in the process of uploading all the PICS and VIDEOS we took last night.






AND there will be a write up published soon as well to document the results and the process we used to evaluate and repair the ASIC chips.

Any idea when the controller will be available and approximate cost?
Thanks!

I would be inclined to place an order for 3 to 5 units if I knew roughly when you expected to have chips ready to go, and if the units had all the accompanying accessories to make them functional miners, interface, powersupply, heatsink, case, etc.

FYI: I have placed orders for the complete Avalon miners listed on the bitaxe.ca website for $389. Being an exceptionally early order I offer to review/take pictures and shoot video of product once delivered.
Perhaps you are mistaken. They are not selling "complete Avalon miners" on their website. They only have a "complete" hashing card listed. A complete miner is going to cost as much as Avalon was selling them for - if not more.

That's sort of a 'semantic' difference in my view since hashing cards are the 'effective component' of a miner and I am making the educated guess that these cards will be fairly easy to pair with components readily available for a full mining unit at the time they are delivered, I am also certain that working cards could easily be resold to current avalon owners and DYI projects for a very decent premium. But yes, you are correct.

I have previously and they do answer, often within 24-48 hours.

As much as I like the idea of them selling a fully functional and assembled miner I would think that the absolutely most viable and smartest move would be to sell 'Moderate level DYI packages', as that would save on assembly time, manpower etc.

By 'Moderate level DYI package' I refer to:

A DYI package consisting of all the components for customers to build a complete miner, aking to building your own desktop computer.
The package would consist of all the components required including:

- Hashing card/cards with soldered ASIC and connectors
- Interface
- Heatsink (Unless standard heatsinks available from Newegg etc. could be used)

Customers could then supply their own DYI case, standard PSU and possibly heatsink.

This would allow a cash strapped and possibly 'under manned' start-up to deliver a working mining product without the lead time, investment and manpower required for assembly, testing etc. allowing them to reach market far faster then delivering a completely assembled and designed mining unit.

In my mind, bitaxe.ca aiming at becoming a 'Radioshack' of mining equipment would have a far higher chance at success then just copying the business model of what is now 10's of companies designing complete miners based on the Avalon reference design. Remember people, time-to-market is everything for BTC mining. And the audience is more than just a little tech savvy!

Just my 2 cents from 15 years of start-up experience.

Edit; In my statement above I am making more than a few assumptions aroudn bitaxe.ca based on avaialable information. If possible another route that I think would be exceptionally attractive would be creating a passive or active heatsink design around the 10-chip cards and delivering them as a '2.0 of the USB block eruptors'. Obviously requiring external power source, but still a very attractive proposition since there are available designs for 1-chip USB miners already and I am guessing that expanding this board design for 10 chips could be fairly simple.

Looking like they will be able to manage the repair of the unit.

Odd thing is the #6 module was on hashing unit #3 and not #1 as originally suggested.

I appreciate that Bitaxe had the thermal image device as it helped in tracking down the defective module.

Were they able to find out what was wrong with the module?

It was narrowed down to one of the components however I am still waiting on confirmation.

hi ChaseD , I'm a fellow Canadian. I was wondering if I could pick up untis & deliver chips to you in person, in order to save mailing costs and delays. Is this acceptable?

Which city are you located in?

Thank you.
