Project update 12 of 20
All the LimeNET Micro board-only and Acrylic Kit packages have now been sent to Crowd Supply and should start shipping out soon. Unfortunately, there have been further delays with the aluminium case, since it required significant changes to be made as a result of the many improvements and new features that were added to the LimeNET Micro board during the campaign.
Numerous prototypes later, we have a final case design and a 3D printed version of which can be seen below. This will now be made from a combination of aluminium and plastic, with the only aluminium part being the lid, which is shown in green in the above render. Given this is no longer going to be a fully aluminium enclosure as originally planned, those who pledged for this level can contact Crowd Supply to arrange a refund or downgrade if they so wish.
Meanwhile, Pantacor have been hard at work putting together a device image that will enable backers to get up and running in no time at all with the LimeNET Micro. By default, this includes support for running a complete Osmocom CNI based GSM network, with configuration remotely managed via an easy-to-use console on the Pantahub website. Support for additional applications is in the pipeline and details will be provided over the coming weeks.
