Good news! We received the remaining Rev 3 units from our contract manufacturer, did final kitting and packaging, and your PoE-FeatherWings are now on their way to Crowd Supply's warehouse to be processed for final distribution to backers. Read the full update.
The campaign finished last week, and we successfully raised our funding goal. :) But if you're late to the party, you can still get a PoE-FeatherWing if you want one! Everything except the Early Bird devices is still available for pre-order. Read the full update.
Hurray, we reached our funding goal! Also, the campaign is almost over! Time flies when you're having fun I guess. Time also flies when you're very busy. :) In this update I wanted to talk about the test fixture used to test each unit before it gets shipped to you. Read the full update.
When I created the wESP32 back in 2018, there weren't any widely available options to get standards compliant isolated Power over Ethernet on a small microcontroller. The situation has improved since then, but with the PoE-FeatherWing, I wanted to go a step further, and I talk about it extensively in this update. Also, at the time of writing, we're 8% away from having the campaign funded. So please, share with your friends, family and followers so we can make a nice finish! Read the full update.
Some of you may know that this is not my first Power over Ethernet (PoE) project. Of course, the PoE-FeatherWing would be a different beast. The wESP32 was created to provide a significant amount of power, making it suitable for applications such as PoE actuators, RGB lighting or PoE networked speakers. Read the full update.
Wow, time flies! We are already a week into the campaign, and have made good progress. Still, too early to cry victory, so we're working hard on spreading the word, and still appreciate your help in doing so as well. Crowd Supply was kind enough to invite me to do an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on their Discord channel next Wednesday! So if there was anything you always wanted to ask me about myself, my company, the PoE-FeatherWing or even my other products, now is your chance. Read the full update.
The PoE-FeatherWing campaign is finally live! Overall the project has moved along quite well (for a side project). That doesn't mean there weren't challenges though--there were plenty and I'll talk about some of them in future campaign updates! As always, a crowd funding campaign is only as successful as its backers make it, so I'm depending on you! I'm very excited about this project and the possibilities it enables, and I hope you are excited about it was well. Read the full update.
