I built a few ones for me. A friend of mine reorganised the layout. My fork: https://github.com/rgr-rgr/NanoFury. Pull request sent.

By the way: I noticed a new version v0.7, not described in the Release_Notes ... ?

Sorry I have a silly question. Does the microchip PIC need NOT firmware ?  I could not find it from github.

The device interacts directly with bfgminer so no it doesn't have any firmware.

Message me if you have any problems

Unfortunately to this day there is no documentation for bifury's chip. I started digging trough the forums and collecting various bits from here and putting the pieces together. I've put all of those notes in a wiki article - which uses the "docuwiki" format, and github wants the "mediawiki" format, so on my to-do list is to start reworking that. If there are any volunteers to help with that or know how to easily convert it - please PM me.

I'd like to help with the documentation. Please let me know what I could do.

I saw your pull - very good job! (I also have a few minor questions - I sent you a PM)

The v0.7 had a minor change mostly addressing shortages of the MCP2210 chip in I/SS footprint. In 0.7 both the I/SO and I/SS footprints are present, so you can use whichever chip you manage to find in stock.

I think I pushed all files already - if you find any missing pieces let me know though and I'll make sure to add them.

I've seen documentation for the bitfury chip, bi*fury (not sure why it's mentioned here though..), and the mcp2210 chip in nanofury.

Thanks. Good idea. Customers need not worry about firmware updating.

Have all been sent devices so they can test and incorporate support for the NanoFury design.

Message me if you have any problems

Luke - the guys that made the bi*fury design are the same that have been working very closely with bitfury and making his boards since the very beginning. I won't be surprised if they actually do have some documentation. However I did not see any such thing published while I was designing the NanoFury (and I may have missed it if that happened in the last 2 months since I already know more than enough and I've just stopped looking for such documentation). If you do have a public link for such documentation - please share it Smiley

As for the1 MCP2210 documentation - that's freely available from Microchip's web site and just in case I included a copy in the NanoFury github repository.

There is a test programm flying around called "nf1_init.exe". I want to run it on linux. Does anyone know the source for source?

Under development Modular UPGRADEABLE Miner (MUM). Looking for investors.
Changing one PCB with screwdriver and you have brand new miner in hand... Plug&Play, scalable from one module to thousands.

Yes, thanks for the wake up :-)
I knew I have seen somewhere the source - but did not see it in front of me :-)

Well it is written Visual C for Windows - I would need a linux port. Has somebody done it?

Basically I just need to set the product string:

can also fix the "Product String" which is a required change so that ''bfgminer'' can recognize all devices automatically

You can always use a windows VM and patch the rgrfury into the vm

Upon review of the source for nf1_init. It should only be a matter of changing some windows specific functions to Linux counterparts and compiling

I'm Working on a few ideas on increasing the hashing speed.

But I note on the IOREFF for Ver.7 that it is shown as 0V8(fine!!), but that it appears to be derived from the BUCK convertor (301F) rather than via a voltage divider & cap.
'Bitfury' seems to have stated that the IOREFF pin should be tied to 0V8, but if people start playing about with R2/R3 and the 'stupid' pencil mod, will this not impact the voltage that IOREFF sees potentially making it as high as 0v95?

Also I notice that VUSB does not appear to be decoupled correctly (0uf22/0uf47)?


Next question…
Prior to the nano 50 miners meant 50  embedded SOC's

Since all the function of the SOC has now been offloaded to the miner software, how does that impact the % processor power required to support multiple miners?
I.E can a PI or other SOC (A10/A20)still carry the utilization 'load'?

they all use a 2 layer pcb correct? none use a 4 layer?
