This is a pre-order, pre-orders require payment in advance, which is needed at checkout.

Due to the nature of pre-order items, we will not be accepting cancellations.

Only 20 units will be made in this batch, 40 if the demand exceeds the initial 20 units. Once the pre-order is complete, we will start buying components.

Delivery time:

Since many things are involved in the production of this board, it can take up to three weeks to deliver (start sending the boards). Sometimes the ordered items will arrive later than that time due to several factors (eg. Transport, etc).

Design and testing

The firmware of this board has been developed by the wizard of cpld, a.k.a Miguel Fides, the testing part behind this board has been made by our friend Estrayk, and the PCB has been designed by @edu_arana.
