Status Update

Andrey has just finished a redesign of the RF part of XTRX to reduce Tx-Rx leakage and external interference. XTRX has much stronger RF shielding now to protect the most sensitive parts of the RF chains and will hopefully pass our internal tests.

If you wonder why it took us so long – Andrey had about 6 (yes, six!) redesigns of this tiny piece of the board before he was satisfied with the result – given how packed the board is, adding a new component is quite tricky. This is the part of Andrey which I admire as an engineer and hate as a manager; – he never compromise quality no matter how long it takes him.

Now we’re onto a more boring part – manufacturing a small batch of samples for our own testing before we can release XTRX to early adopters.

Stay tuned, LO locked!
