About this project

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

The design for solidus is already done. The code has been written and tested. The hardware has been designed and fabricated using the latest in rapid prototyping technologies. So, design risk had already been minimized to near zero.

The greatest challenge for us will be the logistics of the chip at the heart of the Solidus (the ESP-8266). While the chip is widely loved by hobbyists and makers, mass production electronic assembly vendors are less familiar with it. At the end of the day this is unlikely to introduce any serious delays, the electronics industry is constantly adopting new hardware and the the chip is also always available at the retail level from sources like digikey.
