By the end of 2024, Bitcoin price is expected to reach $100,000! The crypto bull market is back

By the end of 2024, Bitcoin price is expected to reach $100,000! The crypto bull market is back. Bitcoin, the top cryptocurrency, could hit $100,000 by the end of 2024, according to a report by Jeff Kendrick, head of digital asset research at Standard Chartered Bank. By the end of 2024, we could see Bitcoin (BTC) reaching the $100,000 level , as we believe the much-hyped "crypto winter" is finally over. According to Kendrick, Bitcoin could benefit from many factors. For example, recent instability in the banking sector due to the end of the Fed's rate hike cycle and the increased profitability of cryptocurrency mining. As uncertainty persists, Kendrick believes the path to the $100,000 level is becoming more apparent. Bitcoin has bounced back this year, topping $30,000 for the first time in 10 months. However, the crypto industry lost trillions of dollars in 2022 after the Fed raised interest rates. Observers Are Arguing About Bitcoin Standard Chartered isn't the only

How to use online debugging PICKit 3.5 programmer to reprogram the hash board PIC file?

How to use online debugging PICKit 3.5 programmer to reprogram the hash board PIC file?

The PIC chip (such as PIC16F1704, PIC12F1572) on the Antminer hash board is one of the very important parts, which is used to store the chip and voltage data of the hash board. If the data of the PIC chip is damaged or lost, the hash board will not work, and the entire miner will not be able to operate normally and profitably.
The in-circuit debugging PICKit 3.5 programmer with firmware self-recovery function can be used to re-program the PIC file of the hash board.



Next, I will explain in detail how to use the PICKit 3.5 programmer to burn the PIC file of the hash board?
1. Before starting PIC file burning, you need to download and install the burning driver: MPLABX-v3.10-windows-installer.exe
MPLAB driver

2. Open MPLAB IPE V3.10, and select the PIC chip that needs to be reprogrammed. Here we will take PIC12F1572 as an example.
Set MPLAB IPE V3.10
3. Click File to select the corresponding program, and then click Settings.
setting PICKit3.5
PICKIT3.5 setting
4. Enter the password "microchip" in the new interface to enter the advanced settings page.
enter password
5. As shown in the figure below, select Power, then select 3.3V for VDD, and check ✔ Power target circuit from Tool.
voltage VDD 3.3V
Notice:
Here is an example of the PIC12F1572 chip, so VDD should be 3.3V. If it is a PIC16F1704 chip, it should also choose 3.3V, but if it is a PIC16F1705 chip, it needs to choose 4.8V for programming.
6. Click Operate, and reconfirm that the data serial port of the PICKit 3.5 programmer is properly connected to the computer.
connect PICKit3.5V to computer
7. The hash board no need powered on, then connect the PICKit 3.5 programmer to the hash board Pin 1. As shown below:
connect PICKit3.5 to hashboard
8. Then click Connect, when the MPLAB IPE warning appears on the interface, click OK.

9. Finally, click Program to start programming.
start programming
In addition, if you want to program the next PCBA continuously, you need to reconnect the PICKit 3.5 programmer to the hash board correctly, and then click Program to start burning. To view the burning information, click Read.
read the programming information
The above are the specific operation steps for re-burning the PIC file of the hash board using the PICKit 3.5 programmer. The PICKit 3.5 programmer can quickly repair the failure of the hash board due to damage or loss of PIC chip data, so that the miner can quickly resume normal operation.

How to repair antminer T17 Hashboard and repair guide manual download

How to repair antminer T17 Hashboard and repair guide manual download This version contains the basic circuit schematic diagram and chip signal direction and voltage introduction We currently publish in Chinese and the English version will be released soon Basic overview: Antminer T17 single hash board uses a total of 30 hash chips, the model is "BM1397", and the signal direction is sequentially transmitted from U1 to U30. Signal direction: "CLK / CO / BO / RST", transferred from U1 to U30, "RI" is transferred from U30 to U1 It also passes 5 test points for testing and maintenance The five test points are: CLK-CO-RI-BO-RST (Please note: The location of the test points in different voltage domains are also different, please refer to the picture notes) For notes and instructions on the test points, please see the following articles: The whole board has 30 chips, divided into 10 voltage domains, and each voltage domain contains 3 chips For the description of

How to repair ASIC miner hash board

How to repair ASIC miner hash board Important parts of ASIC miners – Hash board One  ASIC miner consists of 3 to 5 Hash board, a control board, a casing, and software, among which the Hash board are easiest  to broken. because the ASIC bitcoin miner hash board consists of many serially connected ASIC chips. When they work, they will be in a high-temperature environment for a long time. In this environment, it is easy to burn the chip or scatter the solder due to high temperature which makes the hash board or the mining machine unable to work and no hash rate. How to quickly detective which chips broken it’s the most important when we repairing ASIC miners The Antminer chips fixture fast efficient and easy to use Bitmain Antminer repair inspection tool The ASIC bitcoin miner hash board consists of many serially connected ASIC chips. When they work, they will be in a high-temperature environment for a long time. In this environment, it is easy to burn the chip or scatter the solder du

How to test the voltage and ground value of the power supply unit of the Antminer S9 hash board?

How to test the voltage and ground value of the power supply unit of the Antminer S9 hash board? Antminer S9 hash board Antminer S9 hash board power supply unit Voltage and ground value test of Antminer S9 power supply unit 12V voltage test Test method: adjust the Fluke 15B+ multimeter to the DC gear; the red test lead is placed on the positive pole of the power interface of the hash board, and the black test lead is placed on the negative pole of the power interface. PIC chip voltage test There is a white dot next to the PIC chip, which is 1st Pin. Test method : Adjust the Fluke 15B+ multimeter to the DC gear, measure whether the 1st Pin of the PIC chip has output, and the normal voltage is about 3.3V. If there is no 3.3V, please check the connection status of the hash board test line to see if the hash board is normal; if not, you need to re-program the PIC. MOS tube voltage test There is a black dot on the MOS tube, which is the 1st Pin (Figure 1). This is because the voltage of t
