• Update: Modules are in, Tessels starting to come off the line

    5/15/2014— Updates

    Manufacturing update:

    We have all of our modules back from manufacturing as of yesterday.

    The last Tessels are going through assembly as of this morning, so they’re moving full-force into the process of programming and testing. The testing process actually uses a Tessel and a Raspberry Pi to program the new Tessel boards and live stream their test results to an internal webapp that Jia wrote. You can read more about it on her blog post.

    When they’re done, they go in a bag with some stickers and a cable. This is the first one off the line:

    Our manufacturers made a really cool video of the whole process, which you can see here.

    Software update:

    We’re cleaning everything up to get ready for release! We’ve open sourced the module drivers for Accelerometer, Ambient, GPS, Relay, and Servo. Enjoy, and pull requests welcome!


    While all of this was going on, we also moved to California! Feel free to visit at our new address: 1101 Cowper Street in Berkeley CA. Jon blogged about it.

    Until next time,
    Kelsey, Jon, Eric, Tim, Kevin, and Jia
