Here is how i solved the mboard connection problem:


ill post some more with an actual mboard with these on, self made of course

Edit: daddyfatsax care to sell those unused bitfury boards?

If you had any pics of this setup, I'd be interested in seeing them.

Here you go:
v1.1, v1.2 and v2.2 moddable


v1 chips, 12 chips/board(overclocked), 250ghs, 300W at the wall, 100 chips
same setup, v2 chips, 290ghs, 250W at the wall, 96 chips

Thanks for the pix, interesting setup. I just purchased a hot air rework station and figured this would be a great project to learn on and possibly salvage some boards. I'm pretty good with a soldering iron so this shouldn't be too bad. I'm looking now for an oscilloscope that looks decent and would be great for this project along with other projects I might tinker with in the future. My parts should arrive next week some time, so the salvaging of the boards begins next weekend.

first check if you have voltage,
if you do, you are good, the chances are the first chip is gone
if its not that, the pcb traces are gone, you have to verify which one
a meter should help also

Have fun Smiley

I checked 5 cards tonight in over 20 dead cards in my defective bitfury card stack and I've found that all of them have no voltage going to the bitfury chips. I checked this by using a multimeter and saw 12 volts coming out of the fuse. Then I checked the inductor and used the bottom of the voltage regulator pad as the ground and saw no voltage. So what are the odds that the voltage regulators are all toast? I have no experience with the durability of these voltage regulators and if they were pushed to far maybe they finally just kicked the bucket. I bought an intersil 0-6v 30 amp board below to verify if the chips do in fact work. I should have it in a few days to verify if the bitfury chips are indeed good. If the h-boards traces are gone, and replacement pcb's aren't available, maybe I'll try to design a board with all these chips in series so I don't need to use a vreg which should make it more reliable. If I run them in series of 16 bitfury chips with 12 volts, then they'd only get .75 volts or so which will keep them running efficient and cool. I checked the voltage on a few good H-cards and they are taking .865 volts, and they've been this way since day 1 as I've never adjusted the potentiometer. Anyone know the rest of the h-board pinouts on the pictures I posted.

I think you were better off, buying the power TPS buck.
Also check the inductor to see if it has voltage before and after it.

Good luck

I'll hopefully will have the Intersil 30 amp development board tomorrow. I had a chance to use my new hot air station. I removed the old TI buck converter on the H-Board and replaced it with a new one. Unfortunately I didn't have any voltage before the inductor prior to removal of the old part and also after I installed the new one. I tried another new TI buck converter and had no luck here either. This was the first time I've ever used a hot air rework station, so I decided to just practice on one of my h-boards removing capacitors, resistors, buck converter, and inductor. I got the hang of using the hot air station, so I figured I'd try it on the solid aluminum capacitor. I removed the capacitor and then I started replacing the components that I removed. I reinstalled everything with no issues until I got to the aluminum capacitor. I guess I heated it up to long and it blew up. Lucky it didn't hit me in the eye as at this moment I had placed my saftey glasses on the work bench and forgot to put them back on. I'll have some more time tomorrow to mess around with the boards. I'll post the TI stock h-board buck converter diagram here.

Thread is in construction!!!  Grin

The goal of this thread is to consolidate all informations to operate and fine tune the bitfury miner.

Development:
- BitFury Testers/Devs

Seller:
- BitFury EU/WordWide
- BitFury US

Case:
- Custom Case Design for Bitfury Miners
- All aluminum open air case for BitFury miners

Raspberry Pi SD Image (only v2+ m-boards)
- ver. 1: 2013-Aug-29_BitfuryRasPi_v0.1
- ver. 2: 2013-Sep-27_BFSB_GM2

Information:
- Instructions for BitFury Miner
- eagle .sch format (M-Board v2.3, H-Card v1.2)

Mining Software Repositories: (use with caution, work in progress!)
- Chainminer - Orginal BitFury  Software
- BFGMiner by Luke-Jr
Clarification: BFGMiner's "littlefury" branch (which should really be renamed "bitfury", and probably will be at some point) is currently tested with LittleFury and generic GPIO only, and should also work with Metabank's rigs, but is still strictly a work-in-progress and not considered a stable or even testing release. I haven't confirmed yet that it is compatible with the board design referenced in the OP, but if not I certainly plan to port it ASAP.

Quote
<punin> compile with --enable-bitfury
<punin> con is not going to make support for our hardware because it only runs on linux, pi and needs root access
<punin> so this is as far as cgminer support will go from our side Sad
<punin> ./cgminer --help
<punin> --bitfury-board-type <arg> Bitfury board type, 0=i2c, 1=mboardv1, 2=mboardv2 (default: 0)
<punin> --bitfury-options <arg> Set bitfury chip options chip:speed,chip.. eg. 0:55,1:56... default: ALL:54
<punin> old M-board probably doesn't work because no-one has tested it
<punin> so use --bitfury-board-type 2
- CGMiner by KNK
Anyone willing to help testing a cgminer fork changes with a full kit or at least one board in each bus (A-D)?

In sync with the latest Legkodymov's miner. For BFSB master boards you should leave BITFURY_MUX_OE undefined in bitfury-config.h and change:
Code:
#define BITFURY_MAXCHIPS 100
#define BITFURY_MAXBANKS 1
#define BITFURY_BANKCHIPS 100
to
Code:
#define BITFURY_MAXCHIPS 256
#define BITFURY_MAXBANKS 4
#define BITFURY_BANKCHIPS 16

Also please note that if you are not populating the M-board fully the best results will be achieved by spreading the H-boards evenly between the four channels.





would this info work with the V 3.0 board? also would anyone know any info for the B+ pi's. I only have a B+ here and thought it would do the job. just not much info on the two configurations.
please any info or confirmation would be greatly appreciated.

I was wondering does anyone have the rest of the files to install onto a fresh install of wheezy? I put chainminer from the main page and got it to detect the chips but that is it. please any help would be greatly appreciated.

would someone be able to talk me through a full setup guide for cgminer for the m-card and v2.2 h cards. I have a fresh install of raspbian on my B+ but that is it for now. please any help would be greatly appreciated
