OTA Updates Are Done

Over the Air (OTA) Updates are Done

In Technical Terms: We changed the communication between our signal processing and wifi chips to use a binary packet protocol. This allows us to remotely update our signal processing chip set and cost down by removing a flash part from the board.

In Layman’s Terms: With these changes we are now able to send updates directly to our devices when they need them to ensure they are working properly and to improve the accuracy and the user experience – over time.

During this process, we found out we needed a minor board revision. We made this change and have new boards being manufactured as we write this. The new boards will be arriving the 1st week in February. We’re currently doing tests with existing boards that we’ve retrofit with jumper wires (see image below).

Board used for testing purposes only. Devices that we ship to you will not have jumper-wires or re-work like this.

Once we receive these new boards and test them to ensure that the revision was successful we’ll be ready to do a large run and begin fulfilling orders.
