After a long break, the DCP405 modules have finally begun to arrive. The first (smaller) batch showed up this morning, and two larger batches will follow. We're getting very close, but we do not expect your BB3 to ship out from Mouser within the next ten days, so we've pushed our estimate back to early August. Read the full update.
Apologies for the long delay since our last update. We are ready with four out of five modules and are now just waiting on the DCP405. But time flies, and estimates continue to shift, including our best guess as to when production will be complete. For now, we've pushed our estimated ship date to July 13th. This update includes a list of what we've been up to lately and photographs of the tested modules. Read the full update.
Production continues, and we are happy to report that several critical components have finally arrived. This update includes a breakdown of our progress since the last update, several photographs, and a short video of new firmware features. Read the full update.
We continue working toward fulfillment despite the situation with COVID-19 and an earthquake that struck Zagreb over the weekend. This update includes a breakdown of our progress since the last update. Read the full update.
We received an update from the company that will be supplying AC/DC converters for the BB3 peripheral modules, and it sounds like the parts we ordered will not be ready for shipment until March 20th. Unfortunately, that means we've had to push our estimated ship dates back to May 1st. This update includes a brief summary of our progress since we last checked in. Read the full update.
The main news for this update is that our TFT display supplier in China has announced an additional three to four week delay due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Unfortunately, they cannot yet provide a delivery estimate or let us know when production will stabilize. In the meantime, we have designed two new peripheral modules, which are now ready for prototyping. Read the full update.
It's been four weeks since our campaign ended, and it's high time for the first update on our progress toward fulfillment. Below is an overview of what has happened since the campaign. Read the full update.
New graph viewer features, a video demonstration of curve tracing with MicroPython, thoughts on support for various BB3 models, and post-campaign availability. Read the full update.
Martin and I want to thank all of the backers who have helped us reach our funding goal. We believe that BB3 will meet your expectations. In this update we’d like to present various protection mechanisms that are important for every sourcing instrument, including EEZ BB3 when it's equipped with power modules. Read the full update.
EEZ BB3's IoT functionality began with SCPI support. We then gave EEZ Studio the ability to serve as a cross-platform automation hub for SCPI-enabled instruments connected over Ethernet or through serial-over-USB. Finally, to round out this IoT feature set, we have added MQTT support. Finally, we are happy to announce that EEZ BB3 is now OSHWA-certified as open hardware. Read the full update.
We now have a functional implementation of MicroPython running on the STM32F7 MCU at the heart of BB3. This update describes how you can run MicroPython on your BB3 and includes a video demonstration of a basic diode tester. Read the full update.
The EEZ BB3 chassis comes with a backplane that distributes data and control signals. That backplane also provides four relays that support easy, firmware-level coupling of power outputs without the need for external wiring. This update includes a video that describes BB3's power output coupling functionality. It also announce our campaign's first stretch goal! Read the full update.
This update includes a short video that introduces advanced features of the DCP405 module that are not present in the basic DCP405B. That include remote sense, a down-programmer, remote programming, and fast OVP. Read the full update.
Support for this campaign has been incredible. Thank you! Keep reading to learn more about, and to see a demonstration of, EEZ BB3's data logging features. Read the full update.
It's been a long time since we decided to make the H24005 more flexible and more powerful by giving it a larger screen, an upgraded MCU, and a modular design built around a DIB v1.0 backplane capable of receiving up to three DC power source modules. We are confident that BB3 will live up to that promise. Read the full update.
The EEZ BB3 campaign is set to launch tomorrow, November 19th, at 3pm PST. And we will be offering an Early Bird discount on Two-Channel BB3s with advanced power features, so come have a look! Read the full update.
