    If you have a project that needs Jupiter Nano, you can work on it in June or early July 2021, want to be a beta tester and are willing to report on your experience, get in touch, I'll have a few boards I can send out for people who will really use them: adam@starcat.io

  • Working hardware from the manufacturer

    I got fully working hardware from the manufacturer last week. So that means we can launch soon! I want to write NuttX drivers for the Flexcom SPI ports and get the NuttX board support files fully worked out... coming up in the next few weeks.

    I'm going through the Crowd Supply onboarding process right now, so I should be able to have a campaign live in late June or early July. Sign up on the email list at the Starcat Jupiter Nano page if you want to get notified!
