Manufacturing Update

Hello Backer,

Thank you for ordering zOrigin! Over the past few months, we’ve received an immensely positive response to our Crowd Supply campaign. One feature that has received a lot of praise is the ability to reprogram our chips for a variety of applications. Adaptability is a fundamental value of our technology, and is also part of our company culture. So, due to recent events we have modified our shipment schedule.

Historic levels of flooding in Taiwan have caused an unforeseeable delay in manufacturing. This event has had ramifications for the final assembly as well as the packaging of zOrigin. We have fine-tuned our supply chain accordingly, and are actively taking steps to ensure speedy delivery. zGlue is 100% dedicated to delivering a quality product to you, so we’ve adjusted the shipment date of zOrigin to October 3rd, 2018. If you have further questions or concerns about the delay, send them over to support@zglue.com and we’ll be happy to provide clarifications.

Meanwhile, feel free to reach out to business@zglue.com if you’re interested in building a custom chip of your own. zOrigin is the first step in the DIY chip design revolution, and you’re helping to make it happen!

Warm Regards,

Nathan Pier

We stack chips on demand by integrating the essential pieces of any connected things - processing, sensing, memory, and communication into one chip - giving unlimited freedom for creating things that are smaller, faster, and cheaper than what standard SoC and PCB integration technologies can offer. We help you build you next big thing, with quality, speed, and scalability.
