Project update 11 of 16
So far, we have received most of the components for the boards such as the FPGA chip, the DDR2 chip, and other key ICs.
Like many others in the electronics industry, we are facing issues of parts shortages and accompanying price increases for several key components. For example, the FPGA boot chip is now 4x what it cost last October. For long-term viability of RGGBer, we are testing some alternative components.
We are also working on revisions to the HDMI connector to provide better soldering quality in manufacturing. We’ll share that process in an update very soon.
