Hey Miners! Excited to finally publish this in-depth analysis of the
ECU200 FPGA mining board made by our friends 🦅
Osprey Mining in San Fransisco. Without further ado, let's get started!
Introduction to ECU 200 Mining Card
Another VU9P board incoming! The ECU200 board is made by Osprey Mining. Actually, this board has been around since October 2018 in the FPGA crypto mining market.
So, what's the difference between ECU200, VCU1525, BCU1525, and BTU9P?
They are all based on the same Xilinx VU9P FPGA technology. ECU200 and BCU1525 are based on Xilinx XBB1525 design, so both of them are very similar. Unlike BCU1525, ECU200 doesn't have an efuse. But, ECU200 has a cooler LTC3884 than BTU9P, so it can run some bitstreams at a higher speed. Basically, ECU200 is very similar to BCU1525.
Cryptocurrency Mining and Profitability
We ran a few tests with
ECU200 and compared it with
BTU9P, setting the three of them in a parallel water cooling system. For 🔥Whitefire's bitstream, we set a 2% error threshold, so if it goes beyond that we will not increase the frequency further.
