Pixelblaze V3 Standard and Pico store pages were just approved on Tindie!
The Wizard’s Alchemical Factory of Circuitry and Solder is wrapping up a wholesale order for Crowd Supply so that they can fulfill their preorders, and then will be building/finishing stock for the Tindie store. The Crowd Supply campaign orders are at the Mouser warehouse and are being processed, so be sure your shipping info is up to date!
This means that Tindie orders won’t ship immediately, and I expect to ship them before the end of next week.
I contacted CrowdSupply on the 15th (thought I would give them an extra day) got a reply back saying they were expecting to ship units this week but offered no firm date. They must have been hit really hard by that storm. Visions of the future???
It’s not just Crowd Supply. Big chunks of everybody’s logistics are still a snarled mess – wife has had lab supplies that were shipped frozen (via FedEx, which is usually super reliable) delayed in Texas until they melted to uselessness, causing cascading delay down the line in a whole series of other people’s research, production and shipping…
Unfortunately, I think this is just going to bounce around for a little while yet.
Thank you @wizard – In stock means I’ll actually get a board faster ordering directly from Tindie at this point, despite buying a Crowd Supply order a month ago? Not your fault, and I can do that and keep the other as a spare, I guess.
In that case – is the older Sensor Expansion Board that shipped 6 months ago the same board that ships from Crowd Supply v3 PixelBlazes, or are the old sensor expansion boards forward compatible?
(I have a project working breadboarded on a v2 + Sensor Expansion Board, and was going to use a v3 for the production hardware, and have a spare Sensor Expansion Board around still).
