On this new episode of the Mainboard update, nothing too exciting. Alexis did the final touches on the PCB, made the silkscreen and we should be good to go. Only thing left to do was create the Bill Of Material. I had to fill up a spreadsheet with the components, distributor and number of unit in stock to check whether they would be available when needed.
Some errors were found as well as some components that weren’t distributed anymore but nothing major.
We now can focus on the other PCBs and get them ready as well.
The issue that can prove quite difficult is that due to health and safety concerns with the spread of the corona virus, PCB manufacturing has been halted in China and Europpean manufacturers therefore have massive delays. We can only see how things play out and find out how we will be affected.
