Production Progress

The first batch of HiFive1 boards is nearly complete and on schedule for delivery! Here’s a video and some pics from the assembly line at Tempo Automation, our assembly partner.

If you ordered a HiFive1 Founder’s Edition or Early Access HiFive1, your order should ship by December 20, 2016. When your order ships, you will receive a shipping confirmation email from Crowd Supply. If you need to change your shipping address, you have until end of the day Sunday, December 18, 2016. You can change your shipping address by logging into your Crowd Supply account using the email address you used to place your order.

Completed HiFive1 boards

The Early Access HiFive1 boards are still available, but there’s fewer than 100 remain — now’s the time to order if you want to be among the very first to start developing on a real RISC-V microcontroller and receive your board this year!

Thanks for your support,
