Proto C kit status
- I know a couple of you have pending orders for beta kits. In fact, I don't
think I've had a positive number in the inventory entry for those in weeks.
Right now the holdup is processors. They're out of stock everywhere, but at
least one distributor had some under the old non-RoHS compliant part number
and I've got some of those on the way.
KX8 chips for the OpenTrackers have been scarce for a couple of weeks, too.
I cleaned out Jameco last week, and today I found a batch of the industrial
temperature range version that should keep me going for a little longer.
They'd better get production caught up again soon. I'm hoping Freescale
didn't have another 'fab incident'. Always wondered what that really
meant... personally, I always picture the janitorial staff cooking pizzas in
the chip ovens late at night.
