Testing Boards & Re-stock Coming Soon

by Michael W

The current batch of BeagleWire boards have all passed testing! BeagleWire boards will be stocked in the next few weeks.

I wasn’t able to work on BeagleWire for a long time, due to various personal and professional obligations. In addition, the test fixture was not deploy worthy. (It’s still not entirely ready, so I couldn’t delegate the testing work to someone else). However, this batch of BeagleWire boards is now tested and ready for use!

Thanks for your continued patience and support of this project. If you have a pending pre-order, please take this time to check your delivery address, and update it through your Crowd Supply account if needed. Updating your shipping address helps avoid delays and get your orders shipped successfully. Once your order details have been sent out by our warehouse team for processing, it can be hard or impossible to re-route a shipment.

Please contact Crowd Supply Support with any shipping questions or concerns.

Also, BeagleWire boards are green now!

Future Development

I may do another GSoC project this year to implement better SRAM support and maybe nMigen.
