I've noticed that a few distributors now have a date for when they will have stock of the LR1110 (22nd July), which means it's time for me to get assembly of the first prototypes underway. Alongside that I'll have some breakout boards manufactured to make testing easier. I estimate that I'll have assembled units in hand by mid-August.
I may fund this first batch myself rather than do something like crowdfunding. It ain't gonna be a cheap production run, but the module is still untested so I wouldn't feel comfortable selling it as a 'finished product' to anyone at the moment. I'd like to hear people's thoughts on this.
It's likely my time to work on the firmware for the module is going to become more restricted, so I'd like to get the modules into the hands of people who are wanting to create open source libraries for arduino, etc.
If you're interested in helping with the firmware development for the module please express your interest in the survey.
