Thanks and More December Units!

Thank You! We’ve been amazed at the response to our announcement, and want to thank everybody for their support. When we decided to make a Founder’s Edition available for sale in December, we did not anticipate selling out in less than a week!

We wanted to make sure that as many people as possible can get their hands on a unit to start open-source development on RISC-V, so we’ve decided to start another batch of boards on an ultra quick-turn schedule to make sure they will be ready for shipment on December 20th.

These “Early Access HiFive1” boards will look like the HiFive1 (sorry, Founder’s edition is still limited to the 250 + 3 unit initial build), but will ship on or before December 20th, 2016!

We can’t wait to see what everybody does with their HiFive1 and Freedom E310s!
