By the time this update goes out, the Robo HAT MM1 will be manufactured! And shortly on it’s way to the USA for distribution!
Wow! We finally made it to production. For those who have been following this project since we first listed on Crowd Supply (and before), it’s been a long road with lots of twists and turns along the way.

The last delay was caused by a pin mapping issue on the SPI and UART pins that went to the Raspberry Pi. This took us a while to fix but highlights the importance of testing. The testing jig that we prepared caught all these design flaws.
