I don't know I haven't read the KNC threads.  Don't you keep saying how HF wants to foster a community around their GN chip.  I don't understand how they expect that to happen.  If you want to compare to KNC they have, for example, specifications of what kind of power supply you need to run their miners and actual photos of devices showing connectors on their company website.  But I don't care what KNC is doing I didn't buy a miner from them.

Hi,

What's the power requirements to power a Sierra unit? i.e. 10 or 15amp power from wall? or uses ATX PSU?

Thanks,
 QG

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.

Hi GM,

The rpi is only to ensure Baby-Jets work out-of-the box.

Anything other (more robust) hardware you can get to run Raspbian is simple to drop in as a substitute.

We are only including a chassis, rpi controller, cooling, and PSU to get everyone running ASAP.

But we don't want to sell boxes any longer than absolutely necessary, so everything (except the GN ASIC itself) is designed to be modular and open-sourced soon.

We want the community to discover their own brilliant solutions, whether using retail products or custom inventions.

Best,

HF_CL

posting hole spacing on the module is the last thing they have time for.  they're scrambling to just get you the units on time.  then you may not feel a need to use an alternative.  at that point, if you think you can do it better, then would be the time for you to innovate/improve.  not now.

Simon has told me to expect a 1500W draw at the wall assuming maximum OC with a safety margin.

and yes, it will run with a std ATX PSU.

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

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.

https://hashfast.com/the-baby-jet-controller/

Hi pmorici,

Thanks for the question.

We made the change from serial to USB connection for the Baby Jet so that we could have the same interface for Baby Jets as for the Sierras.

USB also allows us to provide a much richer interface than a serial connection.

And finally, the "serial"/UART interface on the R-Pi is 3.3V levels. The chain connectors on the modules are 1.8V levels. Using the serial interconnection method would have required level translators. Using the USB connection requires a simple USB cable.

Cheers,
Amy

Now I am pretty confused...

1.  Will I be able to use cgminer or bfgminer with a BJ ?
2.  will there be a start mining for dummies included when I receive my units.?

OR

do I have to compile a miner on a rpi?

help!

it'll come preinstalled with cgminer which ckolivas has already seen and will be working on.

I think this gets overlooked a lot.  Having an experienced mining software developer woking on product software before launch has not been usual way around here.  It's a very nice change and I'm looking forward to the results. +1 to hashfast for being proactive on this.

to be even clearer, ckolivas is slated to get one of the first BJ's to actively work on and update.  only after i get my Order #1, Batch #1 though.  Wink

So, the overclock speed of a babyjet is 540 gh/s? The screen also shows that it has 0 % hardware errors, is that true?

Can we please get a picture of something? A Chip, a PC Case, a PSU, something?

What kind of PSU's will these be using? What kind of cases?

We are 9 days away, and still no pics of a rig. Just a cartoon sketch up.

that praise was said for KNC just a few weeks ago too..  wait till the rubber hits the road on this babyjet once it ever leaves the garage
