on wednesday, the 26. of february, the MEGA65 team had the official meeting with Trenz, our mainboard manufacturer.
f.l.t.r.: TRENZ, Detlef "Deft", Antti (TRENZ & MEGA65team), Anton "adtbm", TRENZ, Dieter "dbF"
We can summarize, that it was a VERY, VERY successfull meeting !
We have discussed possible, required and neccessarry changes for the Revision 3 of the final MEGA65 mainboard and the next steps to keep in line with our schedule and once more, Trenz showed us, their professionalism during this meeting in regards of this perfect designed pcb and their plans and ideas for the Rev.3 board !
Trenz was still totally fascinated by the MEGA65 and we are happy by the support they provided and provide to us and of course, they've used the time to play around with the MEGA65.
They were impressed by the overall quality of the MEGA65, especially of the keyboard and also the case (even if the case is not the final yet )
(Yes we're proud of it. we have 3 perfectly designed components (pcb, keyboard, case)
The best news now: within the next couple of weeks MEGA65 DevKit preorders will start via the TRENZ online shop !!!
Those are fantastic news, since we've urgently needed a trustworthy and reliable seller for our MEGA65 and since TRENZ produces our mainboard, this fits perfectly ! We are so thankful for all the support Trenz offers us. (They maybe even have a surprise for us in the final revision of the pcb, but more of that, once it's official...)
(once Trenz is done with implementing all the changes, we will provide you, the community, with all the updates...believe us, only positive. nothing to reduce costs)
So, while Trenz, is starting now with implementing the final changes, we (MEGA65 team) are almost done with the design change paper for Hintsteiner our case designer, in preparation for the meeting with them. The whole MEGA65 team is amazed, how the final case design will hopefully look like and we have put alot of time and effort in it. (More on that, once Hintsteiner confirms our changes. same as above only increase in quality not reducing costs ! )
So stay tuned, there are more exciting news upcoming soon !!! regarding our all MEGA65 homecomputer !!!
