Shipping Confirmations and News on Firmware Updating

Hi,

Shipping Confirmations

Shipping confirmations are still going out — sorry. We’ve been cleaning up some data quality issues and merging various sets of manual Perk selections back into the main database.

We expect them all to go out this week, but we’ll confirm that! Sorry again for the slight delay.

Enhanced Firmware Updating Capability

Whilst we would of course like to have shipped by now, one “happy accident” is that Nordic Semiconductor (who make our Bluetooth Low Energy silicon) have just released a new version of their BLE stack. One of the major enhancements to this version of the stack is it allows both the upgrading of our application code as well as the actual BLE stack itself (which is a good trick — update a BLE stack whilst using that stack!).

This mean your Wimoto’s will be able to be updated to accommodate changes in the Bluetooth Low Energy specification, and in fact will now ship as Bluetooth 4.1 (Low Energy) compliant devices.

The initial version of the app only supports updating our application code, but a later version of our app will include the functionality to also upgrade the BLE stack.

  7. Hello Shela, Marc,

    On August 13 you said that you started to send them out…
    Thanks
