Okay so butterfly labs has these ASIC chips available yet I am very confused on how to implement these. I have never seen these type of things and googling has gotten me nowhere.

The documentation to these chips has not been released yet, as you can see on the page:

Reference documentation: Butterfly Labs is releasing it's PCB schematics & MCU code to open source. Links to this documentation will follow shortly.

Be aware that by ordering these you are not purchasing a finished product, you are just purchasing the chips to build one.

  • @Griffin: There are (will be) companies that will take the chips from you and assemble them into a board for you. TerraHash for example. Jun 28, 2013 at 22:46
  • @DavidSchwartz Also it says 100. Does that mean you get 100 at 4.5 GHz each or 100 that add up to 4.5GHz?

  • 100 is the minimum order. It has nothing to do with the chip's specifications. Jun 29, 2013 at 6:33
  • @DavidSchwartz I understand that however I'm wondering is each chip 4.5GHz or are they all combined 4.5GHz
