Developing Tessel 2
Moving towards Manufacturing There is now an approximate timeline for manufacturing and shipping Tessel 2:

Week of 6/8 — Finalize test rigs and procedures.
Week of 6/15 — Begin final production in China.

Developments from the engineering side:
A specification for Tessel’s command-line tools was opened up for community review and is ready for implementation
Tessel 2 will be tested by our manufacturer using a custom test rig. The schematics for these test rigs are online and are now moving to board layout.
