February Batch is Sold Out!

The boards we received from our manufacturing partner are currently undergoing final testing and are going to ship out by February 10th, as promised!

We’ve been surprised by the amount of last minute sales and I’m sorry to say that it looks like we are basically sold out of our units for the February 10th shipment!

For all all future orders, we’ve updated the estimated ship date to March 10th - another batch of board is already underway. For the most part, if you ordered a unit prior to February 7th, your board will still ship out by the original February 10th ship date. For everybody else, we are going to do our best to have them available sooner than March 10th.

We continue to be amazed at all the support for and interest in the HiFive1. The Twitter pictures and activity on our forums continue to encourage us to work hard to bring RISC-V and open hardware to the open source ecosystem! As always, we’re happy to see feedback, bug fixes, suggestions for improvements, etc. either on our forums at https://forums.sifive.com/ or on Twitter @SiFiveInc.
