Everything Is On Its Way to Mouser for Fulfillment

by Denis Kotlar (a.k.a. prasimix)

Finally, the moment has come. I can now let you know that a shipment left our warehouse yesterday containing all crowdfunding orders and all existing pre-orders. It cleared export controls today and should arrive at Mouser’s warehouse next week (if we get lucky and are quickly cleared through import customs). We’ve pushed the estimated ship date back by three weeks, to October 6th, just in case we don’t get lucky.

Ongoing Development

Development continues on all fronts (including new modules, firmware, and EEZ Studio). We have also re-established manufacturing arrangements after production was compromised by our first contractor (as noted in our August 5th update). We believe the new contractor manufacturer, which is local, will meet our expectations and allow the BB3 project to live and to grow. None of which would be possible without your support, past, present, and future. Thanks again for that!

Open Source ATE Integration

While you wait, have a look at the short video below. It describes our first Node-RED integration. In combination with BB3, it has the potential to provide a very attractive and fully open source Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) solution for small business and other creators who want to automate mass-production testing and reporting without paying a premium for test equipment and Windows-only software licenses (e.g. LabVIEW, Keysight VEE Pro, etc.).

Support EEZ Studio Development

EEZ Studio is a cross-platform free and open source BB3 development environment but also attractive SCPI controller that is used to access many T&M devices using SCPI commands. Its development and support cost us money and your donation will help us to keep it alive and kicking.

BB3 Enclosure & Bare Boards

A BB3 enclosure kit with a wire harness, nuts and bolts for the three core modules, a 4.3" TFT touchscreen display, an encoder knob, and an 80 mm fan. Includes a set of bare PCBs for building the three core modules (AUX-PS, MCU STM32F7, and BP3C DIB 3-slot backplane) as well as PCBs for building one DCM220 two-channel peripheral power module and two single-channel peripheral power modules (either the DCP405 or the DCP405B, as they can be assembled using the same PCB). Suitable for builders with the necessary skill, time, and patience.


$350

BB3 - Starter (Without Peripheral Modules)

A BB3 enclosure kit without bare PCBs but with fully-assembled core modules (AUX-PS, MCU STM32F7, and BP3C DIB 3-slot backplane). The Starter provides an environment for experimenters who are willing to build their own modules or who want a specific BB3 configuration (such as a six-channel BB3).


$650

BB3 - Two Channel (Full)

A BB3 starter kit and two full-featured DCP405 single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power modules, including an AC/DC power module for each. A two-channel programmable power source with advanced features: remote sensing, remote programming, a down-programmer, and additional OVP (with crowbar).


$750

BB3 - Four Channel (Full)

A BB3 starter kit, two full-featured DCP405 single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power modules, and one dual-channel DCM220 peripheral power module. Includes all three necessary AC/DC modules. This is the two-channel full kit, expanded to include two additional programmable power sources.


$179

DCP405 One Channel Module (Full)

A full-featured DCP405 single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power module with remote sensing, remote programming, a down-programmer and crowbar OVP. Includes an AC/DC module.


$125

DCM220 Two Channel Module

A DCM220 dual-channel (2 x 20 V, 4 A) peripheral power module and its AC/DC module.


$59

Cable Set

Two pairs of high quality, silicone, color marked (black-red), 1 m connecting cables; a pair of clip-on probes; and a pair of insulated crocodile clips.
