I don't want to go off topic but I seem to remember talk that spondoolies WAS considering a scrypt rig (likely I am getting my mnfg mixed up)
Not really mixed up, it's just that a bunch of them were working on them, and then didn't / didn't put them on the market.
Bitmain was going to make the Antminer L1, but cancelled that.
BitFury... ah, BitFury.. love 'm, but no idea why they wouldn't just stick to Bitcoin, really Smiley

Spondoolies did confirm plans back in june of 2014, and later somebody mentioning it was supposed to be slated for Q4 2014 (but that might have been the PickAxe).  That time came and went, and given the Scrypt landscape, I'm not sure what the best time for introduction would be even if they've got the design or even the chips ready to go.

and to my 2nd question is there going to be ANY type of 'chip off the old block' so to speak home miner
Hijacking this question only to say that even if they do exit the retail / home miner market, I hope they'll still be willing to deliver chips to whomsoever wants to plunk down the money for some (and willing to sign the NDAs).
That way companies like TechnoBit (I know that name provokes love/hate emotions, thankfully there's pre-existing threads for that) can continue to design miners around the chips that are home miner-friendly (as they have done with the RockerBox/DICE). As long as one understands that home mining is not particularly likely to be profitable for the end user.

The scrypt market of hardware is kinda dead, nobody is offering those 1 and 2  Gh miner boards some have developed.
And ofcourse the massive amount of the 200+ Mh machines being sold makes this not very attractive business for sales.
Anyone who wants to step into this market needs to figure out how they got such an advantage.
Also you can not buy these boards as far as i know, so nobody can copy the tech they have.
And finding a better solution would cost alot of money and would probably again beaten by those who have the high speed boards already.
But we will see what happens, it might be a good time for make a few extra coins
I guess many will leave the crypto coin world if they find out nothing can be gained other than by trading.
 
So in the long run its probably again a few very large miners who will dominate that market.

I totally agree on that its becoming a small group who will be left mining and it might hurt bitcoin that it evolves this way.
But again we can not say whats going to happen, but it sure looks like a few massive miner groups will be left.
I know some are huge chinese miners who have still access to cheap electricity.
But i think china will in time become much more expenssive because of the massive profits they made in the last decade.


I think that is  one of the keys. The chinese are. not cutting  edge but they can ramp up production  quickly any new design  and they can build at cost.  I am imagining huge  warehouses full of under volted  chips  at 1 generation back using company  or  government subsidised electricity.

Gentlemen,

I have an SP20 that has decided to restart itself every 300 (roughly) seconds.  This unit has been running alongside its sisters just fine for over a month and developed this problem yesterday.  Sooooo...a few questions...

Do I email spondoolies directly and if so which email address?

Do I simply let this post prompt someone at SP-tech respond?

What reporting or screen shots can I provide to help tech support solve this problem?

Is there a few quick things I can check myself before escalating this to SP-tech support?

Thanks in advance!

just an FYI - both my sp20 & sp20E have been acting up.

possibly due to dying PSUs

new PSUs seem to have solved the constant hiccups for now

I also think they could do with a cleaning/dusting... which is a bit of a nightmare...

one day i'll present to you my 'SPDirty'

oh & BTW - @support asked for (& received) my email address a week ago, nothing since.

BOL Solemn!!
You posted that SD boot solved your issue.
Do you still have open issue?

and AFTER i posted that, you posted your team would like to send experimental something.

days later they PMd to ask for email address (despite already having it)

i replied the same day - not heard back since.

not that i want anything - just sharing my experience.

what do you suggest for cleaning the SP20s heatsinks?

I'll check if the experimental SD recovery for your emmc problem is ready. Edit: we'll ship you once it will be ready.

A theoretical SP100 assuming .5 watts efficiency would require 5000 watts.  Most people would have a problem to power it.

Would need 4 different 115v circuits, and enough power supplies, probably 9 x 600, with 18 power connector inputs on the machine.

This would make sense as 208-240v is more efficient  than 115v.

It's true that our first 3rd gen design is targeted large scale deployment. However, if the market demand will exist, we might create a smaller form factor.
It took us less than 2 month from decision to a working SP20 prototype.
