Some of you may (or may not) notice that the big furball of consternation regarding Mr. COB's order (or lack of same) has been moved to the vendor thread.

Yes my mac is back up and running, thank you very much.

Board report.

I (and of course each of you) was expecting to have boards done by late pm Monday. Currently we are stuck at step 6 for the moment. Some dimensional issue with something called 'solder mask pad swell dimensional clearance'.

I'm going there tomorrow to sort out the issue with their process, and see if the panels can get processed as is. Without describing the details of 'mask pad clearance', let me explain it by saying that since the board isn't a fine-pitch surface mount layout, the potential issue with the solder mask will at most be a minor cosmetic blemish.

Quite! :-)
The quantity of boards sort of propagates forward from the minimum copper/fiberglass laminate sheet size of 48" x 36". The IICE Air boards are .880in(22.35mm) square. So that's a whole lot of 'em.

Ok, the solder mask (step 6) issue was sorted, and that step was completed today. The lead-free solder coating (step 7) will be done Friday morning. The company that does the solder coating runs lead-free solder 1/2 the time, and Thursday is a lead-type solder day. The panels should be delivered to get the silkscreen legend applied (step 8) also on Friday.

I spent an hour at the V-Score shop today (step 9), going over the CAD data to be sure there won't be any issues. CNC scoring is one of the simpler steps, but it's the last remaining automated process.

I enjoyed chatting with the guy for a good while after, seems he's a bit of a kindred spirit. Not that that matters, but since I'll probably be making the boards this way for the future products (no sense letting this re-learning curve go to waste) it will pay to have a friend in the business.

Board report.

The lead-free solder coating (step 7) was done on Friday morning, and the panels were delivered at 2pm Friday to get the silkscreen legend applied (step 8). However that step did not happen on Friday as that company's business day ends at 3pm.

The silkscreen legend will easily be done on Monday and the panels delivered for V-scoring. (I'm doing that delivery myself).

As recoveries go, I don't think this was a bad one. I mean, going in cold and getting boards built with new-to-me service providers in 3 weeks time.

Yay for me but... How does this affect the timeline?

Originally the circuit boards would be delivered to me 3 weeks ago. Assembly would begin and product shipping was to start on April 23, one week ago today. As it is now, shipping will begin 2 weeks from today. But, it's a fairly good bet that the very first IICE Air will leave here before that.

Thanks for hanging in there everyone. Really.

Since paypal link in the vendors forum still appears to be there, and you are going to have boards coming out of your ass, can we still order?

No pr Youoblem here Poolside. It's not keeping me from riding AND I'm impressed you've stuck with it. What you're doing isn't exactly a cakewalk.

Board report.

The silkscreen legend (step 8) was completed and I picked the panels up this morning and delivered them to get V-scored (step 9).

I snuck a peek at them. Ooooooohhh pretty.

V-scoring will be done overnight and I can get there to pick them up on Tuesday afternoon.
