New pics of the BFL chips. The expected shipping date is late November. #butterflylabs #asic #bitcoin
As many in the Bitcoin community are well aware, Butterfly Labs is on the verge of releasing a new line of ASIC-based Bitcoin mining devices. For a long time we've been seeing mockups and renders of PCBs and cases (like the one to the left). Recently Bitcoin Magazine published the first pictures of populated circuit boards and today on their own forums Josh has released actual pictures of the Butterfly Labs Jalapeno prototype in a prototype case. He warns that the design has changed slightly from what is shown, but most of the significant details remain the same.
