Project update 3 of 4
Production samples and FPGAs came in the mail - an excellent haul.
The production samples (2 of each NanoEVB and PicoEVB) came from the assembly house. They work! The only issue is the flash wasn’t properly programmed, so the boards need to be reprogrammed before testing, which adds time to production. But this is a minor inconvenience.
Also in the mail, FPGAs arrive!
On 9/5/2017 (before the campaign ended), I ordered 50 FPGAs at risk due to the long lead time (6 weeks). The distributor shipped what they had in stock initially, but this wasn’t enough to do a production run. I finally received the balance of the parts today!
With that, I’ll ship these to the assembly house and the full production run can begin!
