Here’s the latest update on our manufacturing status.
The DIP process is about to go underway, after a request for replacement ethernet port components was completed. Our quality control factory noticed some flaws in the original ethernet components that were delivered, but the new set of components has arrived. There was some slight surface damage and pin bends, which is why a fresh batch of parts was requested.
The DIP process should be completed by Wednesday, July 29, and then we have requested that the factory works overtime over this weekend in order to complete assembly by next week.
After the completion of assembly, we’ll then be starting to ship out the units to Kickstarter backers and those who pre-ordered their units on our website after the campaign.
During this time, we’ll be sending individual emails to all backers / pre-orders that will contain the tracking number so that you can keep an eye out on your shipment as it leaves Taiwan.
For Kickstarter backers, we have noticed that a small number of people (12 in total) still have not filled in their addresses on their backer surveys. We’ve sent a follow-up email to those individuals again last week, and we’ll be needing your addresses to mail the Pangolin. So, if you haven’t finished that backer survey yet, please remember to do so by this week!
