Squire announces Samsung Electronics as foundry partner to manufacture ASIC chips
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Squire Mining Ltd. (CSE: SQR; OTCQB: SQRMF) — Squire is very pleased to announce Gaonchips as our design house and Samsung Electronics as our chosen foundry partner to manufacture our ASIC chips in Korea.
On August 1, 2018, we announced that Squire had engaged an undisclosed arm’s length design fabrication firm to perform the back-end design, testing and initial mass production run of our next generation ASIC chip for mining Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin, and other associated cryptocurrencies. We are delighted that we are now able to disclose Gaonchips as our design house and Samsung Electronics as our foundry partner.
Our front-end development team of engineers and programmers is currently working with Gaonchips to develop the Company’s initial ASIC chip to mine Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin, and other associated cryptocurrencies using a wafer process technology that, once confirmed and accepted as meeting certain prescribed specifications and criteria, will form the basis of an initial mass production test run of the ASIC chip by Samsung Electronics.
In addition, once a working FPGA prototype of our initial ASIC chip is developed, we will be able to aggressively accelerate the design and development of our initial mining rig for Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin, and associated cryptocurrencies.
We anticipate completing a FPGA prototype of our initial ASIC chip by September 30, 2018.
