If zadig is installed is it still seen as a HID device?

For cgminer? Negatory.

After zadiging it, run cgminer. Should auto detect.  Also I'm not sure if cgminer has support for multiple chip NFY devices...yet

Or if there was support for multiple bf chips in cgminer...
I don't have one so cannot write the support for it. I only have 2 single chip icefuries.

I could send you a fully populated H-card+adapter, like you see in the picture all with good chips.
Default speed or a little overclocked from 25ghs to 30ghs(in chainminer).

pm me the address ... wish you were in Europe... but its probably US Smiley
Thanks for that. I don't have the power to run much more in my house and I'd hate to see hardware go to waste. Maybe the 2-6 units alone are enough to get me going.

Con - PM me a mailing address please - I have a few NF2s from my engineering units and I might be able to repair a few more. I'll send you also one of the engineering NF6 boards.

Thanks vs3, I'll take you up on your offer.

Okay, I think it's time to get some feedback from the public -

the 6-chip design will most likely be limited to around 12GH. The reason being is - with 6 chips each chip gets around 0.8V in which case the bitfury chips do around 2-2.2GH max. For more gigahashes we need higher voltage. (the NF1/NF2 are running with 0.86V).

And the 0.8V per chip is the ideal case - most USB hubs will probably crap out and instead of 5V will provide somewhat less (thus even lower voltage per chip and lower gigahashes).

The alternative is to try a 5-chip chain. In this case we'll have around 1V per chip and they will do significantly more than 2GH/chip (likely in the vicinity of 3GH+).

Pros and cons:
6-chip:
pros: relatively low power usage of around 1-1.2A, probably 1.5A max when pushed, resulting in relatively low heat production
cons: wasting an extra chip ($5-6)

5-chip:
pros: will almost certainly do more gigahashes with one less chip per miner
cons: will use a lot more power (likely over 3A) and will be very very very hot


so - the question is - should we even bother looking at a 5-chip version, or stick with the 6-chip even though it has some disadvantages?

Considering neither configuration is going to ROI unless a lot of crazy things happen, NF6 design is well underway, doesn't require active cooling (which the 5-chip one sounds like it probably would) which tends to be something people seek to avoid if they're just doing it for fun, and the 5-chip*~3Ghash/s would only be 3Ghash/s faster,  I'd say don't bother.
Would it not be easier (not sure if feasible with the string design) to optionally allow an external power source to use a higher voltage for those wanting it running faster / daring enough to overclock?

Are there any other pros/cons you can think of?

Though if a 5-chip chain is possible, I guess those DodecaFury panels could be sold separately after all Wink

lol @ dodecafury.


i concur with steve. the NFY i have presently dont need active cooling but perf is better with it.  same with the OneStringMiners. the DIY0 with no heatsink no A/C does about 25-27Ghash. with some A/C and vga heatsinks, jumped to 30-33

Im all in for max heat max power max ghs Smiley

As for my plans for the H-card-usb converter....
An H-card can take 12 chips@0,9...0,95V and you get about 30ghs/card this way.
My plan is to split them in 6+6 on two usb converters/card.

Thats is if cgminer doesnt change the playground.

Okay, so we'll stay the course with the NF6 :-)

I personally prefer the option that uses less power - 1-1.2A is just above USB3-specs for power and most "mining-tailored hubs" would have no issues with 1.5A, but going for 3A+ will be a completely different challenge by itself (plus most cheaply-made connectors may not take that very well).
So in terms like that the 6-chip is much more end-user friendly (although not necessarily very geeky Smiley).

As for over-voltaging - that is a viable geeky option - most PC electronics will tolerate up to 5.5V. So if they do let's say 5.4V this will result in 0.9V/chip where they can definitely perform a lot faster (almost certainly beyond 2.5-2.7GH/chip).
Alternatively, they can do a relatively easy board mod and remove the fuse and supply any external voltage they want (although I would caution against going with much over 5.5V as there are some inter-chip dependencies and with higher voltage things may very quickly go beyond what chips can tolerate)

Just out of curiosity - would that (the geeky 'over'-volting, or at least stable-volting, not going above 5.5V) be as simple as disconnecting the USB Vcc (cut the trace/whatever) || dropping in a schottky, hooking up the external power supply and share the USB GND, or are there some other considerations?

Yeah, then I definitely recommend just sticking to the NF6 design.  If it is still in the design phase, you could make that a little easier by including two pads to solder some external power leads into/onto (bonus points if you can make it fit some common connector part), but I'd suspect there should be some pads for parts that could be soldered as well, just a bit more tricky for people new to soldering Smiley

I hope the NF* variants have a unique identifier on USB to make them easy to distinguish on USB.
The nanofury currently nicely identifies itself as:
Code:
iProduct                2 NanoFury NF1 v0.7
Managing variant devices is much easier when some forethought goes into it by the hardware devs thanks Wink

I can send you my code if you like. I modified cgminer 4.2.3 for NFx already.
I get the number of chips by finding "NFx" where x is for chips, i.e. NF1 for 1 chip, NF2 for 2,
NF3 for 3,...NF5 for 5, NF6 for 6...and so on...
The freq of all chips are the same. I have no idea to add an optional to set different freq for each
chip. As the picture I showed that is tested on "NF3".



Later, I will show NF5...

I would be intrested in the code if youd like to share it, id like to test it on the h-card-usb thing.
Just point me where i have o change the numbers.

Thanks
