After dealing with component shortages and Holiday schedule, the UDRX pilot boards arrived this afternoon from our assembly house in Renton WA.
The boards now go into the lab for initial bring-up, then they will be split into 3 task groups:
- SW Driver additions and updates
- IQ audio and RF path
- PA and RX/TX switch
There are a substantial number of relatively minor changes to the design, in addition to the major change in form factor to accommodate the switch to the R-Pi 3.
I will provide an update on our progress by Hamcation in Orlando next month, where the pilot units will be on display. There is still significant work ahead, before we can determine if the pilot run can move to production.
Thanks for your patience and support,
