Amazingly, we are right on schedule for the second production run of hte iGPS360 module :-)
The remaining parts for the second run arrived this week:
- The new batch of GPS engines arrived on Tuesday and just to make sure everything is OK with them, I built another GPS module by hand with a freshly arrived GPS engine. My startup experience has taught me that it is always a good habit to check what your suppliers provide you with as everyone can make mistakes. The hand-built module worked flawlessly.
- New PCB boards for manufacturing were delivered on Wednesday.
- I picked up a new batch of housings today. Due to the relatively large screening-out that I had to do last time, the housing manufacturer layer packed the housings with foam this time. I just finished inspection of the bottom part of the housing and things are looking good so far.
The first batch of assembled PCB boards is expected to be ready for testing by the end of next week. The first fully assembled and completely tested modules are expected to be ready for shipping around May 15th.
As you might also have noticed, I have cleaned up the poll from the left hand side of the blog as I am preparing for a new poll regarding the next potential product that I have in mind. I'll keep you guessing in the meantime what that might be... Feel free to post your wishes!
