Declaration: Before physical chips are out and fully tested, all specs/dates/data are for reference only and subject to change.

Although with unexpected obstacles, timing rearrangements and delays, our chips are still on track of delivery in March. This thread for releasing information of chips to public, with the intention of getting enough (direct) customers or (indirect) resellers aware before actual chips are produced.

The information will be updated to be more and more accurate, as we are updated with our fab, engineers, as well as the mining market.

Specification
Process node: 40nm
Package type: QFN64 8mmx8mm (with another option of QFN64 7mmx7mm possible)
I/O: Standard SPI protocol with clk, in, out and cs.
Rated Hashrate: 12.8GHash/s per chip, with a wide range of overclock/downclock options
Rated Voltage: 0.72V, recommended voltage range is 0.55V-1V
Power Consumption: 0.2J/GHash low voltage, 0.35J/GHash rated voltage

What to expect with the chips
Datasheets and reference PCB design are going to be released as soon as they are ready.

Chips will be available for ordering once the functionality and yield rate are confirmed with testing on actual chips.

There will be three modes of orders: Immediate delivery, 2-month delivery and 3-month delivery, with the price getting lower one by one. For 2-month and 3-month delivery, premium + balance payment may be supported to enhance liquidity and enable larger orders.

Both USD and Bitcoin payments are supported, but the nominal price will be based on USD.

Full devices from ASICMiner are definitely going to exist on the form of samples and small batches. ASICMiner may also build new mining farms based on new chips. Unsliced wafers may also be available for sale. But the main business direction is to provide packaged chips.

Price range
0.49$/G-0.99$/G, depending on order size and delivery speed of choice.

Please bear in mind that when choosing brands of Bitcoin mining chips, the cost of making whole working mining devices, including PSUs, DC/DC, heatsinks, fans, and room cooling facilities, needs to be taken into account. With our relatively low power consumption, the customer can save more money on the devices' side.

Partners
We are especially interested in the following types of business partners:

1. Large mining operation owners who can also do massive PCB production of their own.
2. Mining device manufacturers who can improve our open-source design or make new designs from scratch.
3. Resellers with various channels and abundant liquidity in cash or Bitcoins.

Contact
Please PM to (friedcat) on bitcointalk, or mail to (cat@bitquan.com)/(fnnirvana@gmail.com) for future partnership discussions. Please do not use them for information inquiry, because all info about chips will be published here.

Update March 29, 2014: The chips passed all functionality tests.

Update April 21, 2014: The documents as well as the (verified & produced) sample design are out:

8x8 package picture -
https://mega.co.nz/#!DA1mBJzB!7hFnoT8ZYQd1d30m2oHbuscD36cCQ4ou7stsr5Lo03Y

The package we are using is 9mmx9mm, but it might be partly switched to 8mmx8mm.
Also, we plan to increase the center pad size to at least 7mmx7mm, so please leave enough margin on the PCB to avoid unnecessary re-designs.

(Reserved for Updates)

a can of coke soon more pricy than 1GH/s bitcoin firepower  Grin
hopefully this is the 1st step to turning concept of pre-order and customer financing into a distant memory, and eradicating these telemarketers hashfast, cointerra, bfl etc

working B2B can provide immense value to private mining ops with plentiful supply of low cost, efficient chips with short lead time.
reliable partnerships can be built benefitting all. as well as to DIY miners of various sizes. BTC mining ecosystem will get much needed boost.

Wattage is impresive indeed. But it's still 5W to dissipate from small 8x8 mm package. At least make it flip chip that most of heat can go thru top not bottom and PCB that is poor heat conductor.

EDIT: And please consider possibility of selling small batches of sample chips, like 10 chips.

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.

The WPC would definitely be interested in this.

The right move. Cheaper chips.

We hope to discuss possible development of a 40nm Wasp using that chip. We will have a working prototype coming out soon and with our unique modular design and an open source design it is a perfect match. We will be sending you some information soon but we would like to get reference materials and ideally some sample chips asap.

That is insane. 3TH rigs using only 1kw at 40nm. Very, very impressive friedcat, I look forward to seeing them!

Thank you! Now us long term shareholders and believers can sit back and relax. It's been scary to say the least lately, but now we know we made the right decision holding and buying low:) Friedcat is the man! (Or woman)

2. Mining device manufacturers who can improve our open-source design or make new designs from scratch.

AM's chip design is open-source? They are sharing design with Mining device manufacturers, I'm confused with their business pattern.
I thought AM is partially a Mining device manufacturer itself. Isn't the design a big secret for them?
Who can explain this please?
