High-quality Enclosure and Delivery Status

Following a number of prototype runs and testing of the casing for the LimeNET micro, we are happy to report that we have been able to finalise the design and conclude the durability tests for the product. This required an extensive amount of work given the number of parts used in the actual built. As for the material, we had to experiment with Aluminum Composite Materials for the actual production, to ensure that the product is lightweight and yet strong enough to last through a normal wear and tear of daily use. Last but not least, we have also paid a lot of attention to the actual finish of the product and the whole casing is sprayed with high quality soft touch material, all of which is resulting in a product that projects high quality and durability. The picture below is what our backers should expect to receive through the post as soon as the delivery starts (please see the delivery update).

Delivery Update

The high quality casing is now fully implemented and we shall start the product if the first batch next week. We plan to deliver for the orders placed during the campaign by the third week in August. Thereafter, we shall place regular orders to our manufacturer and star to built inventory for a quick turn around for all the orders placed from now on.

As for the boards, we have almost completed the orders placed during the campaign with few units remaining. We also have orders building up since then and given that the board is gaining a healthy sales and backing by our community, we have decided to go for a much larger volume production. The delivery has been somewhat hampered by the long lead times and we have taken all steps to ensure that we have everything ready to start assembly as soon as all the parts are delivered by our suppliers. We are expecting to have these components in by the second week in September with a further one week to complete the assembly, test and ship. In order to avoid this issue in the future, we have decided to order the long lead components in high quantities, over and above the current orders and keep an inventory. We are confident that in time LimeNET micro will gain even more popularity and as such we are doing all we can to ensure a steady supply of parts for all those who are keen to experiment with such a versatile SDR platform.
