The early payment discount offer is about to end!

We've had a few awesome customers pay in full in BTC, taking advantage of the $20/board discount. We're now ready to get these boards built, which means we'll be ending the early payment discount very soon. If you pre-ordered and want to get this deal, put in your payment soon! You can go to the Cablesaurus.com product page to finish your order now.

If you didn't get in on the pre-order phase, or want to pay with Paypal, you'll have to wait just a little bit longer. We'll open up for new orders very soon and accept Paypal payments as soon as possible.

Making a transfer to Dwolla now! Hope I can get in before it closes!

Thinking of powering a few of these... Any reason why this, this and this wouldn't work?

Nope, I don't see a reason why that wouldn't work. Actually, the board has a 2.1 mm (inner diameter) x 5.5 mm (outer diameter) power connector, so you don't even need the second "this." Great find!

For the GLBSE system, I will use this ATX power supply, although it was cheaper when I bought it. There are a million different power supplies out there, so look around. The two main things I looked for were efficiency and a large current limit on the 5V rail. You can power the boards with either the 5V or the 12V (actually, anything between 5-14V) but it should be a little more efficient on the 5V rail. I'll probably power 6 boards on the 5V line and the rest on the 12V. You'll need to make a little adapter to jump the 12V over to the right pin, but I believe Cablesaurus is going to be selling those.

Thanks fizzisist, the adapter is for power supply (2.5mm) to splitter (2.1mm). I'll get spending!

Any delivery date projections currently?

How about something like https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=48863.240 !?

1GH/s
20w
$500

But real this time not a scam.

What do you think ? Impossible ?

Awesome! Thank you for that, sirky!

We submitted the PCB order yesterday! The PCB + assembly process will take about 2 weeks, so we expect to start shipping these to you guys the week after Thanksgiving, or Nov. 28. We had really hoped to get the boards shipped before that long weekend, but it just didn't happen. It's incredible how many little things slow you down when you're trying to arrange a huge order like this. Things are moving now, though!

That's good news!

One last check - the usb connector is "mini B", not "micro B", isn't it? Wikipedia link.

Thanks!

Yep, mini-B. The micro-B seems to be getting popular, but it just doesn't seem strong enough to me.

I updated the first post to include this info.

Cheers!

One reason manufacturers seem to favor micro-B is that the "teeth" are on the cable side of the connector, which is easily replaced by the user; mini-B has the teeth on the device side, so broken teeth require the manufacturer to repair/replace the device.

Probably not as important here unless users plan on plugging and unplugging their FPGA boards a lot.

Cablesaurus is now accepting new orders, so if you missed the pre-order phase, you can get in on this batch now! We'll keep the $20/board discount open for a little bit longer. Still only accepting payment with BTC or Dwolla, though. We'll also be allowed to accept payment with Paypal soon!

It's possible these orders could get shipped a little bit later than the pre-orders, but everyone should get the boards around the same time. If there are any delays, we'll be shipping in the order that customers finished payment.

Completely new orders, use this link for the $560 total: http://cablesaurus.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=10&products_id=56

If you already paid the $50 deposit, use this link to pay the remaining $510: http://cablesaurus.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=10&products_id=46

Thanks!

Smiley Two weeks till the first boards go out Smiley

Im curious to let my cortex loose for testing the ethernet translation.

Btw is it  planned to optimise the FPGA code at some point ?
I guess the 200 mh/s(x6500)still leaves some space for improvement.

Don't really know why anybody would buy this board when BFL Labs is coming out with their unicorn-dust made PCB that does 1 GH/s at $500 and 20W LOL !

Well i guess as the one who started the development of FPGA miners at all, I'm simply interested in supporting my former codevelopers.
I also want to get a piece of hardware i may still  understand and use for testing and further development.
Afther all im doing this for Bitcoin but also to push the technical frontier.
I doubt this is possible with the BFL as it is a comercial solution wich i guess is protected.

Although i have to admit that if it turns out to be true the BFL solution has its place to be also tested by me.

I coulda sworn that I'd already posted a screenshot of this weeks ago, but I guess not...

Here's a shot of the mining software running on Ubuntu:



Don't get too excited by that hashrate, it was just a lucky few minutes. Smiley The hashrate shown is just an estimation based on the number of shares found in the time that the program has been running, so it's bound to fluctuate a lot until you've been running it for some time. That little graph at the end of the status line shows a rough graph of hashrate over time, so you can quickly see if things have been running smoothly.

Next step, get it working on Archlinux-ARM and Mac!
