ELLO 2M: A DIY Computer for Hobby and Education

Manufacturing & Shipping progress

I am aware that the manufacturing of the first systems is currently off by about a month compared to the initial estimates.

There are a few reasons for that, but the most important one is: I want to make everything right. Consequently, the PCB0 and PCB2 boards in the stack had to be redone to optimize for the new PGA sockets. Some difficulties in the supply of the LCD panels also introduced delay until the factory managed to establish a link with another supplier. And finally, a bit of time was also lost during the license negotiation process because before then I was unable to order pre-programmed chips from Microchip.

All these things have been sorted now and the shipping of the ELLO 2M systems should start later in October with the other configurations to follow shortly after. My current updated goal is to have everything shipped out to you by December.
