Production Start

The NeTV2 production pipeline is really starting to take shape. In about one week I will be heading to South Korea to bring up a new line for NeTV2 production. Although I had originally intended to do production in Dongguan, China, those plans were a quick casualty of the trade war between the US and China. Read the full update.

PVT Validation, Firmware, Scale-up

Since the close of the campaign, the NeTV2 PCB design has gone through some minor revisions in preparation for full production status. Read the full update.

Campaign Conclusion

Wow! What a crazy month - from launching at the Teardown event in Portland to wrapping up at Toorcamp in Seattle, it's been a thrill running the NeTV2 crowdfunding campaign and getting in touch with developers everywhere. Read the full update.

Campaign Conclusion Countdown

Almost to the finish line! We're down to the last 48 hours of the campaign. I'm happy to announce we've smashed through our second stretch goal. Read the full update.

Second and Third Stretch Goals

Now that we're close to unlocking a Tomu with every NeTV2 board, I'm very excited to announce two more stretch goals for the NeTV2: a cooling kit and a beefy FPGA upgrade. Read the full update.

Libre Has a Posse

I'm extremely pleased to share that Tim 'mithro' Ansell's HDMI2USB project (part of his bigger TimVideos.us project) has committed to supporting NeTV2's "libre mode." Read the full update.

Developing Apps for Your TV the Easy and Open Way

The biggest screen in your house would seem a logical place to integrate cloud apps, but TVs are walled gardens. While it's easy enough to hook up a laptop or PC and pop open a browser, there's no simple, open framework for integrating all that wonderful data over the TV's other inputs. Read the full update.

First Stretch Goal - Free Tomu

Now that we've hit our initial funding goal, I'd like to announce our first stretch goal for the NeTV2, which unlocks at $35,000: a free Tomu bundled with every NeTV2 board! Read the full update.

$215

NeTV2 - Just the Board

Just the NeTV2 open video development board plus a 12V power supply. For the power developer who has their own JTAG box or the hobbyist who enjoys spending an afternoon provisioning a Raspberry Pi with the NeTV2 dev tools.


$345

NeTV2 Quickstart Package

For developers and users who want to skip the screwdrivers and go straight to a SSH prompt. The Quickstart Package is a turnkey solution for open video, optimized for video overlay. It's an NeTV2 dev board bundled with a Raspberry Pi 3 B+, 8 GiB SD card with pre-loaded base firmware package, power supply, and our custom HDMI Jumper, all assembled into a case and fully tested. Ready for you to SSH in and load your application code!


$445

100T NeTV2 Quickstart Package - Limited

This is a limited-availability configuration of the Quickstart Package that has the super-beefy 100T FPGA (a $170+ value) rather than the 35T. This gives you about a 3x boost in logic and RAM capacity - plenty of power for even machine learning/artificial intelligence implementations.


$25

NeTV2 - Just the Case

All the plastic parts necessary to protect and mount your NeTV2 dev board: case top and bottom, front bezel, light pipes, standoffs, and screws. If you plan to mate this with your own Raspberry Pi as a video source, you'll also want to get the Custom HDMI Jumper.


$25

Thermal Management Kit

Keep your NeTV2 cool with this thermal management kit that includes 30 mm fan with pre-crimped cable, mounting bracket, and a set of screws for attaching the fan to the bracket, and the bracket to the Peek Array in the NeTV2 enclosure.


$15

Custom HDMI Jumper

Even the shortest HDMI cables don't quite fit inside the NeTV2 case, so we built a custom PCB that provides impedance-controlled differential pairs to bridge between the Raspberry Pi overlay video source and the NeTV2 open video dev board. Make sure to select the correct FPGA image when using this cable, as it leverages the pinout flexibility of the FPGA to optimize signal routing.
