The BM1485 ASIC chip
Finally an ASIC chip to mine Scrypt coins
The BM1485 chip, the first Litecoin Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) chip in more than two years, is designed by the same team that designs the world’s most power-efficient ASIC chips for Bitcoin mining.
Each Antminer L3+ employs 288 such chips to deliver more hashrate and efficiency than any previous Litecoin miner on the market.
A Compact Time-tested Design
World’s most powerful Litecoin miner, yet smaller than many portable boom-boxes
The Antminer L3+ follows a form factor similar to that of the hugely popular Antminer S9 and is nearly the same size.
Whether in a home or in a mining farm with several other L3+ miners, the Antminer L3+’s small footprint fits well in all locations.
Controlled by Texas Instruments’ 1GHz ARM®Cortex-A8 Microprocessor
L3+’s control board uses Texas Instruments’ AM335x 1GHz ARM® Cortex-A8 microprocessor
The Antminer L3+’s control board employs the fast AM335x 1GHz ARM® Cortex-A8 microprocessor and supports Gigabit Ethernet to ensure that mined blocks are submitted instantly.
Engineered to Remain Powerful yet Cool
A high-grade aluminum case, customized heat-sinks and two computer-controlled fans to keep it cool
The L3+ utilizes a combination of conduction and convection cooling to make the world’s most powerful Litecoin miner perform at its best while creating no more heat than the latest terahash Bitcoin miner.
Every chip of the L3+ is fitted with custom-made heat sinks that are made of a high-grade Aluminum alloy. The case of the L3+ is made of the same material. Two computer-controlled high speed fans on both ends of the “tube” ensure that the hot air is rapidly replaced by cooler air at the required pace.
Ease of use
Antminer’s user interface has been carefully designed keeping the needs of our users in mind
After you have accessed the Antminer’s user interface, all you need to do is to enter your wallet address and mining pool settings to start mining. The user interface also allows you to customize certain settings and to upgrade to new firmware releases from Bitmain.
