• Tessel Update 20: Manufacturing

    5/2/2014— Updates

    Current Status

    2500 Tessel PCBs have been manufactured, and have just arrived at Worthington Assembly in western Massachusetts:

    Worthington will assemble the boards, using pick-and-place machines to surface-mount solder the thousands of circuit components onto the PCBs, load our firmware code, and run the shiny new Tessels through a suite of tests.

    When they’re satisfied, they package them up in antistatic bags for us and send them to Gilroy, California for fulfillment by Rush Order.

    Rush Order is already receiving modules that have completed manufacturing . When they have received all of the modules and the Tessels, they will begin packing and sending individual orders.

    What we’re working on

    Meanwhile, we’re making sure all of the software is ready: making last-minute improvements to Tessel’s firmware, adding polish to the module code, writing lots of documentation.

    We opened up our first pass at Tessel’s API documentation last week, and updated our hardware documentation as well.

    Expect to see more of our code open-sourced soon!

    All the best,
    Kelsey, Jia, Tim, Eric, Kevin, and Jon
