Manufacturing Status

by Eugene Pomazov

Below is a digest of developments since our last update. Unfortunately, due to component-availability issues, we’ve had to push our estimated ship date back to August 24th.

Production Status of StereoPi v2 Boards

Both the regular and the slim versions of StereoPi v2 are fully assembled, and we completed functional testing today. We will ship these products from the factory to our kitting partner in a few days.

Compute Module 4 (CM4) Availability

All CM4s and antennas are now in stock at our kitting partner’s warehouse, where they’re waiting to begin assembling kits.

Camera-Kit Accessories

All items are on their way to our kitting partner.

Metal HQ-Camera Housing

Remember how we planned to use black anodizing for our HQ-camera housing? Well here’s what it looks like!

We had some issues with the custom brass M3 spacers, but now it’s all good.

PoE Shields

And now for the most dramatic part of the story. Those chips shortages we talked about in our previous update? They’re back again to haunt us. The key chip used in this device, SI3402-B-GM, has increased in price from $1 to $10, which means the total cost of a PoE shield exceeds our retail price by 50%. We are still looking for a solution…

StereoPi v2 Schematics

We’ve published a PDF version of our board schematic. You can find it in on our wiki.

Thank You!

We’d like to thank all of you for your patience! We are doing our best to absorb the punches from this crazy IC market and deliver StereoPi v2 to our backers in a timely manner.
