Controlled by a
Dual ARM® Cortex®-A9 Microprocessor
S9’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
the world's most power-efficient yet powerful Bitcoin miner. The Antminer S9’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.
A high-grade aluminium case, customized
heat-sinks and two computer-controlled fans to keep it cool
The S9 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 S9 is fitted with custom-made heat sinks that are made of a high-grade Aluminium alloy. The case of the S9 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.
Antminer’s user interface has been
carefully designed keeping in mind the needs of our 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 and can be upgraded to new releases from Bitmain.
