hey all. sorry i seem to have gone dormant with this project. I've been dealing with a bunch of shit in my personal life i dont mind sharing. Main thing is the lovely lady in the white dress in my avatar (my wife) recently started having seizures/convulsions 2-6 times a day and doctors cant find a damn reason. along with taht is the medical bills from not having insurance (thanks obama ~:[ )


saddening story aside, I'm slowly making progress when i find myself a few minutes of peace.


yes thats me in my avatar, and wife, and daughter :,)

Is she having enough sleep. I know a close person whose seizures are triggered due to lack of sleep. I hear you man. Hope she gets well soon.



she gets enough sleep yea.




to distract myself for a while could i get you to post a detail shot of top of mboard where the regulator and rpi connector  is. while my mind mulls how to place some components for pifury. im gunna work on a m-board mini.

also measurements if you could on the width of it and length from rpi connector edge of pcb to slot 4

Are you still continuing this? If not, do you have plans to open source this?

i can upload the source files if you'd like. I discontinued with a 4 chip version due to sizing constraints of the fab house i use, and the fact that i got an M-board from a third party dirt-cheap and some cards to go in it.

 As well, some calculations showed that it would have needed a heatsink which i was trying to avoid (for component placement reasons).

2 is fully possible. 3 with some effort. 4 in that small an area with only 2 layer pcb needs a heatsink for optimal performance and longevity.




in its place, for some bitfury ASICS i ordered, i have almost fully developed the NFx (its a link).


reply letting me know if you would still like me to gitorize the PiFury schematics and board files as they sit. (No new progress since last update)
