Manufacturing Delays

by Gino Magarotto

First I’d like to apologize for my lack of communication over the past few month—and for missing my estimated ship date. For a number of reasons, I was unable to make as much progress as I’d hoped on SimplePnP. I was able to assemble and test the PCBs, however, and the good news is that they’re working perfectly.

Unfortunately, I have to push my estimated ship date back to May 25th. The two main areas that need more attention are: 1) batch PCB assembly, and 2) machining the plastic cut tape feeder trays. A late-May target should allow me to finish both tasks—despite day-job distractions—and still have enough time to package everything up and ship it all off to Crowd supply.

Sorry for the delay and thank you for your understanding,
Gino Magarotto
