• This Week in Tessel: Shipping timeline update and more

    Sunday, September 6, 2015

    Hello again Tesselators! This Week in Tessel is where we highlight the latest news, projects, and events, from code, to community, to hardware manufacturing.

    Shipping update: We just had a check-in on timeline, and there’s good news and bad news. The good news is we’re not blocked anymore; the bad news is we have to push back our estimated timeline on shipping Tessel 2 by a few months.

    We think we have a software fix in for the FCC certification issue that has been blocking us, as well as a hardware fix for a CE certification. The fixes are currently in testing, and we should hear back next week about the results.

    Since the CE issue fix requires new hardware components for static shielding, Tessel 2 requires another board revision (2 weeks). These revised boards will then be sent in again for FCC and CE certification. This takes 2-4 weeks.

    Pending full certifications, it will then take another 6 weeks or so to ramp up into full manufacturing. That means our current estimated ship date for Tessel 2 is revised to late November.

    If you need to update your order or address, you can access your order through Celery.

    Continued development: Meanwhile, on the software side, we’re continuing to build and improve on the command line interface for Tessel 2, which is now published to NPM. T2’s firmware also continues to grow. As always, you’re welcome to get involved.

    From the community: Featured projects this week are an alarmbot with IR and Voxbone and a promising Neopixel project. Thanks for sharing what you’ve made!

    Dojo foundation news: We’re also excited to see this public announcement that the jQuery and Dojo foundations are merging– here’s to the open web.

    That’s all for this week! Feel free to submit to the next newsletter. In the meantime, see you online.

    With love,
    The Tessel Project
