About Hubl:

The Hubl Team finds it deeply disturbing that the resource we use the most, we understand the least. Hubl’s mission is to push the current 100+ year-old method of delivering electricity into the 21st century. We seek to build the next generation of standardized, affordable, automated energy delivery systems. Driving prices down is our strategy for helping make homes, offices, and factories more efficient– saving families, small businesses, and even Fortune 500 enterprises money on their electricity bill. We seek to generate the needed paradigm shift in the regulation, automation, and distribution of energy and its analysis by leveraging the power of machine learning to form a seamless and convenient relationship between mankind and the power that we use everyday. We seek to provide commercial, industrial, and corporate administrators with insight and control over their energy usage and building analytics in an obvious, unified, and valuable way. Most importantly, we intend to make our technology as accessible and affordable as possible. Sustainability and efficiency must no longer be allowed to live only in the realm of expensive, premium products. Hubl seeks to be that solution.

Cryptocurrency mining – Powered by SamacSys

Category:PCB Footprints Tags : 

Cryptocurrency mining is a hot topic at the moment with the value of Bitcoin rising so dramatically, but how do you ‘make’ crytocurrency?

Cryptocurrency mining is a hot topic at the moment. The latest edition of Electronics Weekly contains a story that one of our friends (Neil Birtles) has kindly provided to them. Neil explains how he built his very own Cryptocurrency miner to produce an alternative to Bitcoin called Verium.  Verium is the world’s first Binary Blockchain Protocol.

His Cryptocurrency miner obviously contains electronic components and circuit boards (PCBs). SamacSys provided all of the Schematic symbols & PCB Footprints for his PCB, free of charge. This allowed Neil to spend more time designing so he could complete his project more quickly and fire up his mining machine sooner! find Symbols, Foorptints and 3D models at
