Project update 5 of 7
The campaign is over and OpticSpy production has already started!
I’ve sent the engineering documentation to our contract manufacturer, e-Teknet, and they will begin PCB fabrication right away. We’re using a 15 business day leadtime for fab, assembly, and test. That will give us some padding in case of any shipping or customs delays, and keep us on track for a May delivery to you.
I’ve also placed orders for the production quantity of components from Digi-Key and Mouser Electronics. They are shipping today and should arrive to me on Wednesday, April 4. After verifying quality and quantity, I’ll ship them off to e-Teknet’s China facility for assembly onto the bare PCBs.
I’ll report back with another update as production gets closer to completion or if we run into any snags along the way!
