Thanks everyone for being patient while we finalise our first product and bitstream. It’s certainly been a big learning curve for the team.
The VERUS bitstream and relevant integration is now almost complete and close to being ready to be loaded on to devices.
During the coding delays the hardware team has been working away silently in the background looking at all the various hardware options and possibilities that we could consider and have decided on the board we are now going to ship. Unfortunately the lead time on this board is the longest of all our options and will take perhaps 4 weeks, however this board is our board and not a modified design and also significantly higher specified.
- Full Size PCI-E Connection
- Increased and more stable power delivery
- Improved cooling
- Additional communication channels on board
- 2 x DDR3 SO-DIMM slots
This board comes at a much higher manufacturing cost than all our previous considerations, which UKMINER will be covering as a thank you for your patience during the development delays. The development of this board has also been solely financed with the teams personal funds and not funds from customer orders.
As always the team is working hard in the background and shipping of the pre-orders is our priority. Rest assured we are working to get this done as soon as possible. In the meantime we hope you all are pleased with the significantly upgraded hardware.
