Chirpsounds Update – October 2022!

Ten steps Forward, No Steps Back

In the last update (April 2022), we outlined some of the headwinds we faced with the main chip going out of production, and that we had to redesign. I’m happy to tell you that the design work is almost done and only rigorous engineering validation checks remain, and the product is better in almost every way!

The Path Ahead Gets Shorter and Straighter

By the time you read this, orders for machine-built demo boards will have been placed. These are for testing purposes to prove that the design meets our high standards. When that testing is done and if it meets our standards, the first small batch will be produced by a manufacturer we toured and selected last week. The reason for the small initial batch is to make sure there are no challenges that didn’t show up in the first very small sample. Once that’s complete, it’s off to the races!

We can’t begin to tell you how much we appreciate you for hanging in there with us, and we promise it will be worth the wait!
