The BM1387 ASIC Chip
The world’s first bitcoin mining ASIC based on the 16nm process node
Bitmain’s BM1387 chip is built using TSMC’s 16nm FinFET technology and is the world’s most efficient bitcoin mining chip in the consumer market.
Each Antminer T9 employs 171 such chips to deliver a stability and efficiency combination not found in any other Bitcoin miner in existence.
A Compact Time-tested Design
World’s most powerful bitcoin miner, yet smaller than many portable boom-boxes
The Antminer T9 follows the same form factor as that of the hugely popular Antminer S9 and is also the same size.
Whether in a home or in a mining farm with several other T9 miners, Antminer T9’s small footprint makes it comfortable in all locations.
1. Controlled by a Dual ARM® Cortex®-A9 Microprocessor
T9’s control board uses a Xilinx® Zynq®-7000 series FPGA with a Dual ARM® Cortex®-A9 microprocessor
Bitmain’s engineering team understood the importance of every detail while working to make a highly stable yet efficient Bitcoin miner. The Antminer T9’s control board employs the fast Dual ARM® Cortex®-A9 microprocessor with CoreSight™ 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 T9 utilizes a combination of conduction and convection cooling to make the world’s most powerful miner perform best without getting hotter than any other terahash bitcoin miner.
Every chip of the T9 is fitted with custom-made heat sinks that are made of a high-grade aluminum alloy. The case of the T9 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 T9’s user interface has been carefully designed keeping in mind the needs of its users
After you have accessed the Antminer’s user interface, all you have to do is to enter your wallet address and mining pool settings before you start mining. The user interface also allows you to customize settings such as the fan speed or the frequency and can be upgraded to new releases from Bitmain.
