Starting Alhambra Batch 4.1

We have started the batch 4.1 (November) today, another 240 Alhambra units. We will start taking orders today and shipments will start around two/three weeks from now.

With every batch we have been adding a modification to our Logo. This time we want to add another element from Granada. The  idea is to add a cypress, but we are open to other  suggestions. You can participate designing it, send us your draft  !!

Thank you very much for following us in this exciting adventure.

“Tuturial de Electronica Digital” is here !

Every month is more and more exciting. As promised we have started writing HowTos and Documents to help all of you getting the best from your Alhambra.

Weren’t amazing the  first three chapter’s of Obijuan tutorial? Here we are dealing with bitpoints‘ trying to become Master Jedi. Very fun to participate and see all of you/us in Twitter , Google+ and rest of media.

Eladio is getting pressure, he has started working on the next batch of the Alhambra boards, but this time the pick&place will happen in house ! Big step forward increasing our capability to produce high quality HW. There are 40 boards left from current batch. Amazing, thank you to all of you.

We also want to welcome our new members from other countries outside Europe:  Chile, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, USA, Colombia, Costa Rica and Guatemala. We know shipments take longer that what we would like. We will work to  improve this and get better and quicker.

And what about Jesus and the rest of participants that released IceStudio 0.3.1-rc (release candidate). This tool is a breaker, is the beginning of doing things differently.

These are all events that have happened during these past months:

And last but not less important lets mention some of the projects that the community has done:

Finally, behind all this work there are some more people behind the scenes, they are receiving your mails, packaging, shipping,…  Maria, Maria Luisa, Antonio and Andres.
