We’d like to thank everyone for the support they’ve given us in becoming Crowd Supply’s most successful project. Breaking the $1 million dollar mark is a nice reminder of how far the LimeSDR community has come.
While there are already thousands of our early backers now developing with LimeSDR, our focus is squarely on filling the remaining orders. The next 1,000 LimeSDR boards, which should cover nearly everyone who has already placed an order, will be arriving at the Crowd Supply warehouse in mid-May and will be shipping to backers the second half of May. You will receive a shipping confirmation email with a tracking number when your order ships. If you have more questions about shipping, please consult The Crowd Supply Guide and your Crowd Supply account.
This batch of 1,000 was supposed to ship a full month earlier, but a single, critical part shortage held up production. Even so, we’re currently pursuing ways to get that one part on an expedited timeline from the manufacturer. We’ll let everyone know if/when we succeed in accelerating the delivery schedule, but for now the May dates are what we have. In the meantime, we’re working with our parts suppliers to get a steadier flow of parts so reliable production can ramp up.
Those of you who opted to receive LimeSDR boards modified for HF use will be receiving your boards as part of the coming batch of 1,000 boards mentioned above.
Once production of the next batch of 1,000 is underway, we will be launching the next evolution of the LimeSDR with the LimeNET campaign set to launch at the end of April. This will include both a residential-scale, SDR-enabled network-in-a-box and a high-power, carrier-class equivalent for wide area coverage.
