What happened to our FPGA?

https://hashfast.com/fpgayousay

Hi Amy,

There is a lot more great content on the HashFast blog that somehow escaped the forum's notice!

*shovels furiously*


1.  CG Miner screenshots

https://hashfast.com/cgminerscreenshots/
Posted on July 30, 2013 by Simon Barber
These are screenshots of the CGminer software output.

CG Miner is one of the standard mining software packages that can interface with either CPU, GPU or ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) mining equipment.

Here, it is integrated with our own driver for the HashFast ASIC, and is connected to a HashFast core running inside an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array ), simulating the same logic that our ASIC is running. The following images show a demonstration of that ASIC logic actually running against BTC Guild and mining bitcoins.


"Bitcoin enables ordinary people to fight back, to avoid and evade snooping governments, which enact, use and abuse laws that allow them, without due process, to investigate, tax, control and seize privately owned assets."  -   Leon Louw

“We can say without equivocation that firms like MasterCard, Visa and the TBTF banks like JPMorgan and Goldman hate the idea of ever having to compete for business again. They have grown comfortable in their corrupt world of writing laws for themselves without any regulatory oversight. They enjoy the exorbitant privilege of bilking the American economy with extortionary transaction rates. They are scared of Bitcoin. And they should be. It offers transparency, cost efficiency and anonymity.” - Max Kaiser

So it remains to be seen how much Hashfast will sell their Sierra chassis for then?  Or would be able to buy empty babyjets to put the modules in as well?

you won't need to buy them from HF if you don't want to.  the Sierra chassis is just a std rackmount and the BJ is a std desktop.

Except for the "modules" (we're going to call them mini-boards now to avoid confusion) there is nothing proprietary in the Baby Jet and Sierra.

HashFast is dedicated to open source and community empowerment, in both hardware and software.

To make an empty Baby Jet or Sierra, all you need is fairly standard stuff from Newegg/Amazon/Craigslist.

- an ATX tower with plenty of ventilation and places to mount the liquid cooling system radiators
- an ATX PSU with plenty of wattage (get twice what you need to ensure cool, efficient, reliable service)
- a controller with enough RAM/CPU for your needs (Raspberry Pi/tablet/smartphone for BJ, basic 1U Debian server or old laptop for Sierra)

Of course we are thrilled to have The WASP and other DIY projects contribute their own ingenious chassis/cooling solutions, but until then off the shelf parts are fine.

Miner protection is BS. The more GH/s hashfast distributes, the more difficult will be to have positive ROI.

After this nonsense it's very hard to discuss anything. So miner protection is bad because it gives more GHs to HashFast customers?!?!?

This thread is becoming a troll-fest really fast. It would be nice to have KnC shills back to KnC-still-no-tracking-number-whining thread.

ohh!! now the trolls want to end the trolling while everyone on KNC had to deal with attacks from every rock each jackoff miner company threw at KNC customers

We'll leave you a few bitcoins left to mine by Nov for you guys, ok?

FPGA: Xilinx Virtex-7

Quote
https://hashfast.com/fpga-xilinx-vertix-7/

Posted on July 31, 2013 by Simon Barber   

This is the FPGA card, which is a Xilinx Virtex-7 that is used to run FPGA emulation of our ASIC.  In the FPGA, we only have room to run five hashcores.  In the real ASIC there are many, many more.

In our final ASIC, we will actually speed the chip up and slow the chip down by varying voltage and frequency according to a temperature measurement with the on-die temperature sensors.  That will mean that the chip will run as fast as possible given the cooling solution that it is working with.  If you have no cooling, it will throttle right back and run really slowly. If you put very good upgraded cooling and you have a cold air or water source, then the chip will ramp up and get as much performance as it can.

Where does it say anything about lifetime warranty of Hashfast miners ?

HashFast REFUND ! I am a HashFast's Batch 1 customer and I want full 100% BTC refund.

Xilinix control software

Quote
https://hashfast.com/xilinix-control-software/

Posted on August 2, 2013 by Simon Barber   

This is the Xilinx control software. Xilinx is the manufacturer of the FPGA platform that we are using for emulation of our chip for doing tests and verification of our logic.  Here, it is illustrating the output of compiling our logic to be run in the FPGA—so it is showing the number of flip-flops, the amount of combinatorial logic, our supply, and the temperature at which the chip is running. You may click the picture below to see the diagnostic.

Well thanks for clarifiying the motherboard/module confussion Cheesy

Now we just need pics of the pcbs, cases, water cooling parts or other component you have around to maintain the hype until the chips come

+1. We still need to see the actual baby jet, we are 10 days out!

I'm pretty sure most people here have read all the blog content.  Speaking of the blog doesn't the post titled, "Baby Jet Controller" directly contradict what is being said here in this forum?  

On the blog it says, "The Baby Jet ships with a built in Raspberry Pi model B. This acts as the controller for the one or two GN chips in the Baby Jet. The controller talks to the chips over its internal serial port." but in recent posts on this forum company representatives are saying that each "mini-board" will communicate with the controller over USB.

So no the content of the blog hasn't escaped notice which is why I was surprised when it was said that the boards connected to the controller via USB vs. the earlier stated serial connection.

Thanks a lot on the HF vocabulary and semiconductor lessons. 

Who is doing your board assembly?  Or will you not tell us because you know you're going to be late?  HF may as well eat their shoes and ship the BJ's with two modules already in there.  Will save a good deal on shipping for HF and may save the company's image.

The "S" in USB stands for "serial". People sometimes call USB - serial port, although formally speaking it is not a port, it is a bus.

like i said.  they don't have to tell you squat.  just like all the other asic companies didn't.

Or will you not tell us because you know you're going to be late?

you don't know that.  and what if they are a bit late?  how out of the ordinary would that be given every other asic company's lateness?

    That isn't the case here.  Did the read the blog post?  Toward the end it also says, "The Raspberry Pi’s Ethernet port and 2 USB ports are available on the back panel of the Baby Jet for you to connect to." So there was no confusion between 'Serial' and 'USB'.

Yes, I've read the blog post. Baby Jet may have maximum two mini-boards, each connected through one of the two available USB ports on the R. Pi. Simple solution, battle-tested tested through MiniPeon project and perfectly clear.

Sort of unfortunate to see it using rpi ... they've been pretty unreliable historically. Then again, the little wrt routers in the avalons haven't been especially robust either.  If the connectivity to the rpi is USB hopefully it'll be possible to replace the rpi with something more reliable.

I would rather just use a regular computer...  why would i trust  100 bucks a day to a pi or whatnot...

I can hook these up to one of my puters right?

It doesn't say anything of the sort in that blog post it says the USB ports are free.  You're missing the point.  My issue is the lack of clear and accurate information.  We can infer it's USB now from the postings in this forum but what's so difficult about writing a concise overview of how it is all going to work? What about releasing a diagram of the mounting hole spacing for the 'mini-board' and what kind of mounting assembly will be required if we want to try alternative cooling options.
