By this time next month, we will have shipped the last of all snickerdoodles, breakyBreakys, piSmashers, and cookieJars ordered through Crowd Supply. Aside from some accessories (e.g. jumpers, SD cards) – which are in the works and will be delivered shortly thereafter – this will close the book on our crowdfunding efforts. Read the full update.
We’ve been pretty busy the last few months getting new hardware out and taking steps to bring snickerdoodle mainstream. Read the full update.
Our sincere apologies for the lengthy delay in providing this update. We were holding out for some good (and tangible) news... which is exactly what we have! Read the full update.
A reminder for all those with outstanding piSmasher orders: If you have not done so already, you MUST fill out the online form. Also, in snickerdoodle news…another shipment of ~200 boards just landed at Crowd Supply and we’ve started the next batch of snickerdoodle blacks. Combined, this will represent the LAST of the preordered snickerdoodles – we made it!!! These are likely still several weeks from shipping, but the light at the end of the tunnel is starting to get a lot brighter. Read the full update.
Attention, snickerdoodlers! Two important updates. First, if you still want a piSmasher, you need to take action now. Second, we will soon have a new website for hosting documentation and other snickerdoodle resources. Read the full update.
50 more snickerdoodles are on track to be delivered to Crowd Supply later this week, which accounts for the last of the ‘original’ snickerdoodle pre-orders... Read the full update.
You asked, we delivered: as of last week, snickerdoodle's STM32 Platform Controller codebase is fully open source! All production firmware for the STM32 has been publicly released on GitHub. Read the full update.
It’s high time for another snickerdoodle update! First, we’re pleased to announce the official “launch” of a brand new snickerdoodle/krtkl Wiki! Check it out at: http://wiki.krtkl.com Read the full update.
Apologies for the radio silence – December was a quite the crazy month, but the good news is we were able to get another 167 snickerdoodle blacks delivered to Crowd Supply (on top of the 147 snickerdoodles delivered in November). Per the last stock count, CS has ~350 snickerdoodles (split evenly between ‘regulars’ and ‘blacks’) working their way out the door. We’ve started the process of getting another 200 or so delivered by the end of February, so more and more (extremely patient, kind, and understanding) backers should start seeing krtkl packages showing up on their doorstep! Read the full update.
More hardware is "in the mail!" Delivery was delayed a couple days on each end due to the Thanksgiving holiday…and subsequent Black Friday/Cyber Monday madness ‘breaking' UPS/FedEx/USPS. In any case, another ~150 snickerdoodles are making their way out Crowd Supply’s door at this very moment, with another ~175 doing the same in another week or so. Read the full update.
Apologies for the radio silence - we’ve been awaiting final delivery of all the parts needed for this next production run for the past several weeks and are *finally* on track to receive the last of the components by the end of this week (or so we’ve been told). That puts us another three or four weeks or so out from shipping another batch to Crowd Supply for fulfillment. Read the full update.
snickerdoodlers, Another wave of boards from the aforementioned ‘reworks' made it up to Crowd Supply last week and are making their way out the door. This week we’re kicking off the process of getting parts in for the next production build, which will take a few weeks. Read the full update.
Here’s a quick update on the status of everything, including snickerdoodle, piSmasher, and shipping dates. Read the full update.
First, we figured out the snickerdoodle yield issue that’s been plaguing us for months. After chasing down countless leads and testing hypothesis after hypothesis – mystifying even the Xilinx support engineers in the process – we deductively narrowed the problem down to an undocumented function within the Zynq BootROM. Read the full update.
Quick update on what’s been happening with snickerdoodle. Work continues on establishing the root cause of this ridiculous manufacturing yield issue. Read the full update.
Apologies for skipping the update last week; we were holding out for some notable progress to report on. Despite the lack of “breakthroughs,” we wanted to let you know where things stand. Read the full update.
First off, after ironing out some supply chain “issues” (see: having your distributor increase your key component pricing 25-60% with no notice and for no apparent reason while pushing your lead times out 11 weeks...), our ‘test’ snickerdoodle batch is *finally* on the assembly line. These units are scheduled be ready next week and will (hopefully) provide us with some much-needed insight into what’s causing the production yield issues we’ve been seeing. Read the full update.
Hello snickerdoodlers: three topics we wanted to cover in this update. Read the full update.
