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.

  • And that my friend is the question I am looking to answer. I am not sure what I'd do with the chips. Apparently I need PCBs but I am confused on where to buy. – Griffin Jun 27 '13 at 4:32
  • After schematics are released. – Griffin Jun 27 '13 at 4:34
  • @Griffin: There are (will be) companies that will take the chips from you and assemble them into a board for you. TerraHash for example. – David Schwartz Jun 28 '13 at 22:46
  • @DavidSchwartz Think it will be better to wait and buy the chips when you see how much the installation costs or buy now? – Griffin Jun 28 '13 at 22:59
  • @DavidSchwartz Also it says 100. Does that mean you get 100 at 4.5 GHz each or 100 that add up to 4.5GHz? – Griffin Jun 28 '13 at 23:07
