absolutely gorgeous miner, though. I love it.

Hand crafted, with love, and quite a lot of swearing. Quite a conundrum, by rights it shouldn't work at all, breaks all the design rules for PCB layout (like what PCB, rats nest more like). Then it goes and repays me (or not, since its pool mining) by finding a block against all the odds. OK not solo, even I'm not that stupid, but within the first 500 shares of setting up a new account on BTCguild (it has been mining for about 6 months on other pools/accounts though, so not quite inifinitely improbable, hat tip to Trill).

Anyway, thanks for the compliment  Smiley

This miner has a heart and soul! Smiley

I'd best not leave its soul-mate out of the limelight. Hiding in the background, on the right, is its little brother, a Xilinx LX9, doing sterling work at 5MHash/sec. And out of the picture is a Raspberry Pi, handling the networking plus a DE0-Nano doing the heavy-lifting at 35MHash/sec. Quite a menagerie. My other DE0-Nano is trying its hand at Litecoin, not quite so successfully at 2kHash/sec though.  Grin

Anyone know if these two are any good to run the BE's?

the aitech should. The other one, probably not.

I'm selling USB hubs that run BE's. http://www.ebay.com/itm/271252540623
$45 + ship if you want to trade here instead.

Heres a video that shows them running BEs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOrawRcUmOE

My rig:



http://imageshack.com/scaled/large/853/fy7e.jpg

10 block erupter's running 3.3G/H

ATX power supply

Raspberry Pi

I have three hubs as it was the only configuration I could find that was stable, I suspect the power traces on the hubs were not up to the job.

Waiting for my BFL 7G/H, and waiting to see whats next in ASIC before I spend any more $$

Actually has android device in it.   Not a single break in the casing that has been talked about how easily it cracks.  And no hot glue inside, and looking clean.  Personally i smell demo unit that is at BFL not in customer's hands.

Received a package from friedcat this morning, and finally undertook some re-organization that the wife was "gently reminding" me to tidy up.

Picked up a little $39 shelf from Target and moved about 40gH/s of ASICMiner gear into it. I think she'll be much happier with this setup rather than having it all in plain sight on one of my desks Wink

What's that on the top left and on the middle shelf?

 Top left is a little USB fan pointing down on a couple Erupter USBs hosted on a DLink 7 port hub. Rest of top is more Erupter USB's plugged into more DLink 7 ports.

 Shelf below that is two ~13gH/s Block Erupter Blades.

 Shelf below that is 5 x Anker 10 port hubs, fans, and USB Erupters.

 Bottom shelf is power supplies.

Kramble, that's an impressive piece of kit. I haven't read the entire ~150 pages , but that's about one of the coolest pieces of kit I've seen on this thread. It's not about the MH/s, its about getting stuff to work. Hat's off to you! Way beyond my "Electrotech 101" which is some 20 years old now back in college where we'd blow up a capacitor/inductor or two :-)


To the person who was interested in 10 port USB hub, this one works good (and is cheap)

Don't know if you can get it in the US, but 21 pounds works out about 30 USD - but shipping from England would be heavy I would think.

that looks like the anker with a different name and half the price.  Undecided

@Kramble:

Only half wave bridge rectifier?  Another two diodes would go nicely Smiley

Amazing work, wish I had the knowledge for that.

The diodes are to drop the 5V DC power brick output down to around 3V for input to the FPGA power supply (1.2 and 2.5V LDO regulators in the foreground), just to keep the regulator chip temperatures down (its also why the board is mounted vertically, improves air flow). Since the contraption is currently in my bedroom, I'm using passive cooling as the fans were keeping me awake.

Most of the hi-tech is inside the FPGA chips, the breadboard is really just used as a patch panel. The only active components are a 74HC244 buffer for the byteblaster-clone that programs the FPGA's (driven bit-bang style from the raspberry pi gpio's), a couple of opto-isolators for the serial comms (again to the raspi, but passing through a DE0-Nano for obscure historical reasons), a 20MHz oscillator module (attached dead-bug style since its a SMT part) and a smattering of transistors/leds for monitoring.

I always enjoyed the Heath Robinson style cartoons as a kid, seems to have rubbed off on me somewhat  Roll Eyes
