In consultation with Crowd Supply, we managed to reduce the minimum number of boards we can deliver while still covering the cost of production. We were able to do this, in part, because Mouser has begun carrying Xilinx parts, including the Artix-7 35T FPGA upon which ScopeFun relies for much of its heavy lifting. As a result, we’ve lowered our funding goal from $75,000 to $29,500 and are much closer to making ScopeFun a reality.
We also worked with Crowd Supply to extend the campaign by approximately two weeks. (Our estimated ship dates have been updated accordingly.) That means you now have until Thursday, August 8th to back the campaign and help us introduce the world to this affordable, open source, all-in-one instrumentation powerhouse.
We’re excited to see how these changes affect the campaign. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns. And, as always, a huge thank you to everyone who has offered up their support and encouragement so far!
