Canaan Technology Launches New Avalon A13 Series Bitcoin Miners

Canaan Technology Launches New Avalon A13 Series Bitcoin Miners According to the latest news, Canaan Technology announced the launch of the new Bitcoin miner Avalon Made A13 series, including Avalon A1346 and Avalon A1366. Canaan Technology said that the new generation of miners uses advanced ASIC technology, and the A13 series will include two different models. Compared with the 90 to 100TH/s hash rate offered by the A12 series, the A13 series has both hash rate, and energy efficiency has been enhanced. Canaan's CEO said the all-new A13 is a milestone in the company's over-computational energy consumption analysis. The model A1346 has a hash rate of 110 TH/s and an energy efficiency of 30J/TH. Model A1366 has a hash rate of 130TH/s and an energy efficiency of 25J/TH. Comparing the energy efficiency ratio of Bitmain's flagship S19 XP of 21.5 J/TH with that of Bitmain's M50S of 0.026j/Gh, the new series of A1346 is "very competitive" in terms of efficiency at

How to choose the right mining pool?

How to choose the right mining pool? There are tens of thousands of mining pools, so many miners will be more entangled in the choice, especially since new miners are more susceptible to interference from outsiders. As soon as they hear of which mining pool has higher returns, they will switch hash rates immediately. Then they were also worried that the mining pool would be unreliable. This happens because many people still don't understand how to choose a mining pool, and they don't have the criteria for choosing a mining pool in their hearts, so they can only choose with others. So today, we will tell you how to choose the right mining pool! With the popularity of mining, there is now a variety of mining r ig  on the market, and new mining equipment appears every day. However, existing mining pools may not be compatible with all equipment, so it is essential to check whether your mining equipment is compatible with the mining pool! Otherwise, you will waste time and electrici

Practical guide to noise control of miners

Practical guide to noise control of miners Miner noise affects sleep, physical and mental health, and the relationship between neighbors and families. However, the mining of profits cannot be stopped. So how to make a profit through mining while reducing noise? Now, let’s discuss the issue of noise reduction for miners. Where does the miner noise come from? ASIC miners  are usually equipped with two fans, one at the air inlet and one at the air outlet, which is used to discharge the heat generated by the miner's chip and prevent the miner from being damaged due to high temperatures. The miner's fan  must run at a certain speed to effectively dissipate heat, so noise is generated. Take the Antminer S9 as an example. In normal operation, the fan speed on the mining status page is about 4320-4560 rpm, and the measured noise from 1m away is about 76dB(A), which is almost equivalent to the noise of a busy traffic hub. (Note, the fan speed of the miner can be measured with a laser ta

What factors affect Bitcoin mining revenue?

What factors affect Bitcoin mining revenue? Speaking of Bitcoin, everyone will first want to know the profitability of Bitcoin mining. However, just before, Bitcoin mining has affected the overall investment market. After that incident, people also appeared to be highly cautious about the issue of mining and often saw issues related to the allocation of miners on major networks. So, what are the factors that affect the revenue of Bitcoin mining? Many factors affect mining revenue, but the final analysis can be summarized into the following four categories, namely: 1. Algorithm factors. For example, difficulty adjustment period, revenue per block, etc. This is the uncontrollable nature of Bitcoin itself, which is not affected by external factors, but it will affect other factors. 2. Miner hardware. For example, chip manufacturers and miner assembly manufacturers will affect miner hash rate, miner power consumption, miner cost, and other factors. The hardware factors have not changed mu

How does a multimeter quickly detect circuit board failures?

How does a multimeter quickly detect circuit board failures? Common faults of PCB circuit boards are mainly concentrated on components such as capacitors, resistors, inductors, diodes, triodes, field-effect transistors, etc. The damage of integrated chips and crystal oscillators can be found visually, while some faults need to be detected by using maintenance tools. Today I will explain to you how to troubleshoot circuit board failures with a multimeter: Intuitive troubleshooting: 1. Check the status of the components First, observe whether the faulty circuit board has apparent component damage, such as electrolytic capacitor burnout and bulge, resistor burnout, and power device burnout. 2. Check the soldering condition of the circuit board Check whether the printed circuit board is deformed or warped, whether there are solder joints falling off or soldering, and whether the circuit board's copper cladding is warped, burned, and turned black. 3. Plug-ins for observation components
