Here in Spain (production side), there is not much one can do in August, factories are closed, chip distributors wont answer emails ....
PRO manufacturing is on the first line on the producing list. We are actively working on it
We are just on it, the plan is to submit the pcbs production order the first week of September. We tried to submit it on July but factory said that they would not start working on the panels until they came back in September as all theyr producing slots before vacations were already taken.
Once the pcbs are produced, we just need to get a SMT soldering slot and its done. Part of the chips to produce the batch are already here in stock, so once the pcbs are produced this should go pretty fast.
This time we want to try to open sales as soon as we have stock, to avoid the stress of answering the question for what we never have an answer : "when my order is going to be shipped ?". This is an impossible to answer question cause it depends on factories slots and getting emails asking about that day after day is really stressful.
