Dear Bitcoin Community,

We are a new venture involved in the research and development of a novel Bitcoin mining technologies.
Our brand name is labcoin and our website is http://www.labcoin.com.
The management company is named "iTec Pro Limited" - Hong Kong, legally and officially registered in such jurisdiction.

This is initially a self-funded venture, so this thread is not meant to sell "pre-orders" or the likes.
Rather, it is  a mean for the community to evaluate our work and plans for a eventual, future second phase, when we will open investment opportunities to the public.

I won't post many images of IC and similar here, as a fair number of details can be found on our website, once again, our url is http://www.labcoin.com.

We look forward for constructive feedback and criticism. You can contact us with any question at info@labcoin.com or post in this thread. Thank you sincerely for your time.

Note : the pictures shown on our home page are just 3D renderings of possible case and board design and they do not represent real products.

Samuel Noi
Nominee Director
iTec-Pro Limited

My negative trust rating is reflective of a personal vendetta by someone on default trust.

can you please share what's your NRE cost for 180nm process? Just curious if an opensource asic could be crowd funded?

Looking to review Bitcoin / Crypto mining Hardware.

From your website: 0.18 um (micrometers) /180nm (nanometers) die size custom design.  Huh
Maybe you meant feature size.

Sorry, some typos here and there, will be fixed shortly. Thanks for the head-up. I clearly meant feature size.

I'm not one of the engineers but i'm in charge of creating the text contents you are reading, so you may encounter some small quirks like that one, the text will be fixed properly anyways in due time.

EDIT : Fixed all instances of the typo.

Cheers

Sure. Since we're avoiding most EDA tools licensing costs and going for a MPW process through University channels, our costs are in the figures of 120.000CNY for a test run of chips.

EDIT : 120.000 CNY are about 20.000 USD

Cheers.

comes up to $20k only for a test run, that is quite reasonable, if that is successful you could well design and do wafer and go for chip productions?

Yes, it's not including engineering costs too, which are in the ballpark of 10.000 USD, and yes, that's the plan, 180nm full wafers are still affordable and we have good funding.

Cheers

We won't yet talk about 'prices', but our cost is about 18~20 USD/Ghash for version 1, still just an estimation. Take it with a grain of salt.

This is great news. Can you give us more information in regards to investment opportunities? Will you be mining and selling hardware?

"We will use deploy half of this hashing power for private use and re-sell the remaining stock of ICs in the form of high powered 'blade-like' devices.
Income generated will go toward the completion and tape-out of the version 2 IC. We will also evaluate the possibility of offering shares of the company to the public."
