As we mentioned in our previous update, 3 weeks ago we started first step for preparing production at chosen factory. Now we are glad to inform you that first step is successfully complete!
During these 3 weeks these things happened:
On the second week all components needed for tests also arrived at factory (Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 Lite and 2 cameras).
For all 20 pieces factory performed all tests, and all 20 pieces have passed them successfully! If you’re curious, for the tests our team created MicroSD Raspbian image with auto-started self-tests.
With every StereoPi factory do the next things:
Script runs on start checks all things like camera modules, USB, Ethernet. If every subtest was successful script shows “green” result. So we obtained “green” for all 20 pieces.
The last thing we plan to do is to make aggressive tests in our lab. If aggressive tests will not show any things needed to be patched, then it means we have approved hardware design and ready to press “start” button for production right after successfully crowdfunding. We do our best now to start crowdfunding campaign in the nearest few weeks!
