Provenance ASIC Inc. Announces IPO and Hardware Offerings on Havelock - Cutting Edge Bitcoin and Scrypt ASICs Preparing for Fabrication

The Creator platform adopts a specialized architecture, precisely implementing the specific algorithms. Additional considerations, such as use of a FD-SOI capable foundry or the latest 28nm SMIC foundry, lay the foundation for power and performance improvements across the family of proposed ASICs.

The Prospectus posted on June 6, 2014 boasts power usage numbers as low as 0.17W per GH on SHA-256 chips, and 5W per MH for Scrypt chips.

“This isn’t a simple unrolling of the algorithm,” said Roger Thorpe, Lead ASIC Designer, Advanced Architectures, “We’ve re-engineered the pipelines to streamline performance and minimize power. We expect it to set a high benchmark for future ASICs for quite some time.”

ASICs for Everyone

Product availability timelines are still undisclosed, but manufacturing preparations are already underway. Target markets include datacenters as well as consumers.

“The low power usage is certainly attractive to large mining operations,” said Dave Coleman, Founder and Lead Embedded Engineer, “but low power also allows residential customers to build significant hashing operations without rewiring their home. We’re committed to making products readily available to both demographics.”

"We’re ready to begin physical layout, and pleased to finally release product details to the Bitcoin community,” said Sylvan Newby, Founder at Provenance ASIC. Manufacturing throughput is always a concern with new Bitcoin products.

When queried about it, Dave Coleman replied,

“We’ll be able to say more about production ramp-up after we get the chips to tape-out, but multiple support platform prototypes are already in development and testing. We’ll be ready when the ASICs arrive.”

Hardware Exchange

Havelock virtual units are being made available to assist funding of the final stages of physical implementation and manufacturing. In addition, the company intends to offer virtual units that can be exchanged for actual mining hardware, or held for their dividends and exchanged at a later time. Additional investment opportunities are available to interested parties.

Founded in 2014, Provenance ASIC (Havelock “PROV”) is a collaboration of engineers, Bitcoin enthusiasts, and manufacturing experts dedicated to producing next generation mining gear for an unparalleled value in terms of $/Hash/Watt.

Innosilicon A2 Terminator Scrypt ASICs Are The First 28nm Chips For Litecoin And Dogecoin Mining

Innosilicon A2 Terminator Scrypt ASIC. On 4/20/14, Innosilicon announced sales of their A2 Terminator Scrypt ASIC on Bitcointalk and their website. Innosilicon is not a newcomer to the ASIC mining realm, by any means. They have previously completed the design and fabrication, through Global Foundries, of an A1 CoinCraft SHA-256 ASIC chip that was used in many cheap, ready-to-ship miners out of China in recent months. From their A1 chips revenue, Innosilicon was able to manufacture these A2 Terminator Scrypt ASIC chips without crowdfunding through preorders, as many competitors have.....

ASIC-resistant Execoin Innovates Again

Execoin is progressing rapidly up the ladder of altcoin success, a month after its official release. The coin is a member of the family of ASIC-resistant altcoins that have adopted a defiant stance against scrypt ASIC mining. The formation of a GPU-only strain of altcoin pre-empts the market-shaking effects of the looming scrypt ASIC invasion and these altcoins have positioned themselves for the changes that are about to sweep across the cryptocurrency domain. Disclaimer. It should be mentioned at the outset that the writer has some bias in favour of Execoin, namely operation of mining....

Radeon GPUs in Demand as Litecoin Mining Difficulty Increases

Bitcoin mining on a standard GPU is a thing of the past. Put simply: it's no longer economically viable, given the power consumption of discrete graphics cards and their relatively high price. ASICs are a no-brainer when it comes to bitcoin, however litecoin is a different story. Unlike its counterpart, litecoin can still be mined using off-the-shelf hardware, namely via AMD Radeon graphics cards. There aren't that many alternatives, either. There are still no ASIC products for scrypt, litecoin's algorithm, and this will not change for the next few months at least. It is rumoured that....
