Components arriving at our offices in Taipei for the next batch of 1,000 LimeSDR boards
While we have delivered most of the LimeSDR boards to our backers, there is presently a shortfall of few hundred boards. Of particular significance, we are very late with the delivery of the boards with the aluminium casing. We are working hard to address these issues, by manufacturing the boards now in batches of 1,000 units and we have already begun working with higher volume suppliers for the delivery of aluminium casing.
Most of the components for the LimeSDR board have been delivered and the hold-up is due to a few components that are expected to arrive by the 21st of August. They will go into SMT assembly immediately and the boards should be fully tested by the middle of September. It will take a further week for packaging and shipping to Crowd Supply, so backers should see their units arriving around the end of September.
We have asked for another 100 units of the aluminium casing to be delivered to us by the middle of August. Assembly and shipping to Crowd Supply will take a further week. We expect the next 100 units to be shipped to backers by the end of August. The rest of the units will be shipped in October.
Given the increasing popularity of the LimeSDR and with so many backers spread across the world, we are planning to keep larger volumes of stock so that your future orders should only take a few days to be delivered. We shall provide you with updates on this as soon as we have finalised our higher volume manufacturing plans with our ODM partners.
As always, you can check the status of your order by logging into your Crowd Supply account.
Many thanks for all your support!
Ernie and the LimeSDR team
