MPW-2 is the second Open MPW Shuttle providing fabrication for fully open-source projects using the Open PDK announced by Google.
The shuttle provides opportunities for designers to experiment and push the state-of-the-art without having to reconcile the risk associated with the cost of fabrication.
The shuttle program is open to anyone, provided that their project is fully open source and meets the other program requirements. Costs for fabrication, packaging, evaluation boards and shipping are covered by Google for this program.
The following project requirements must be met in order to qualify for inclusion on the shuttle program:
My apologies for the delayed communication regarding MPW-2 status. Due to concerns about the potential difficulty installing headers and FlexyPins for the configuration, we have decided to contract a local assembly house to install the components.
We are expecting the first set of these boards to come back tomorrow (Dec 9th) and will resume shipping next week.
Information regarding the development board and test software can be found here.
