What parts do I need to build an ASIC miner?

Who buys ASIC chips to turn them into bitcoin miners?

  • So you nobody just buys “ASIC chips” and turn them into Bitcoin miners. If you are an end user (miner) you buy Bitcoin mining equipment (computer components) that contain ASICs designed to mine Bitcoin.

What is an ASIC (application specific integrated circuit)?

  • ASIC means Application Specific Integrated Circuit. It is application specific: the chip is designed for one specific application. If you want to mine Bitcoin, you design an ASIC whose application is mining Bitcoin (or, probably, computing SHA256 hashes as fast as possible, which is the computationally demanding part of mining Bitcoin).

How do I search ASIC's registers?

  • Searching ASIC's registers lets you access information on all our available registers. You can also use NZAU Connect, our app that allows you to search across Australia and New Zealand.
