Project update 7 of 9
Hello, CaribouLite Backers!
It has been a while since the last optimistic update, and you all must have noticed, we had another major delay in our plan. It was partly due to our euphoria, when we managed to secure the components on July 2022 (rather than on June 2023!).
Unfortunately, we need a little more of your patience.
The FPGAs (Lattice ICE40LP1K-QN84) and the LNAs (MACOM MAAM-011229) posed additional supply issues, and have been delayed. We managed to source all needed LNAs from a third party on time, but it didn’t solve the FPGAs problem.
Our status today:
This week we are entering our final stretch in this crazy flight. To shorten the assembly period, we are dividing the total assembly batch into two sub-parts -
Mouser shall need another few weeks of processing to finalize the fulfillment to our backers.
Which brings us to start of December for fulfillment.
We truly hope we shall not have any additional surprises down the road, and we are eagerly waiting for our first testing batch as well.
