VMC develops single mask ASIC using 28nm eASIC Nextreme-3 to significantly increase performance while reducing power consumption
SANTA CLARA, Calif. & SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 4, 2013 — eASIC® Corporation, a leading provider of single mask ASIC devices and Virtual Mining Corporation (VMC) today announced that VMC will use eASIC Nextreme-3 28nm devices to create a series of scalable Bitcoin mining machines capable of generating up to 24.756 TH/s (tera hashes per second) of cryptographic hashes.
The fast design and turnaround time of eASIC Nexteme-3 28nm single mask ASIC devices coupled with the impressive performance and low power makes this an ideal solution for our Fast-Hash One Bitcoin Mining Machines, said Kenneth E. Slaughter, CEO of VMC. The performance we have seen from the eASIC Nextreme-3 family has allowed us to develop a scalable platform that provides the computing power to satisfy the most demanding Bitcoin mining cryptography problem, added Slaughter.
VMC has used its vast cryptographic algorithm experience to take full advantage of the advanced performance and power reduction features in our eASIC Nextreme-3 28nm architecture, said Jasbinder Bhoot, VP of Marketing at eASIC. This has allowed VMC to architect a very high performance Bitcoin miner, while reducing overall power consumption, added Bhoot.
