A new chip called the BM1485 ASIC is taking the bitcoin world by storm. Two years in the making, the chip is the result of hard work by the team already known for powerful and efficient Bitcoin mining. Every Antminer L3 and higher utilizes 288 of these chips to provide the highest hashrate.
Antminer L3+ Uses
The most impressive feature of the Antminer is its small size. The unit takes up less space than the average boombox radio. Its form is very similar to the Antminer S9, which was very popular with users. The Antminer L3+’s small footprint is an excellent solution for both home and farm mining use. Created by Texas Instruments, the Antminer L3+’s control board features the Cortex-A8 microprocessor and the AM335x 1GHz ARM®. It was designed to be extremely fast and has full support for gigabit Ethernet to allow the mined blocks to be submitted instantly.
Powerful Cooling Fans
Bitcoin mining requires constant and sophisticated cooling. The L3+ has two fans and customized heat sinks inside of an aluminum case. Both conduction and convection cooling processes are used to ensure the Antminer delivers optimal performance. The chips used in the L3+ all come with superior-grade aluminum alloy heat sinks. The fans, which are controlled by the computer, are placed at opposing ends of the tube to quickly push out hot air and pull in cooled air at the right intervals.
Ease of Use
Customer needs are a top priority, which is why both the Antminer S9 and Antminer L3+ user interfaces were carefully designed to be easy to use. To get started, the user only needs to access the Antminer interface and enter the wallet address along with the settings for the mining pool. Mining can begin immediately after this point. The user can also receive new firmware releases and adjust settings with the interface.
There are many choices for mining bitcoins. The Antminer L3+ is a superior product designed to deliver results.
