We are producing the OpenMV Cam RT1062 now and moving forward toward shipping soon!
More Good News
Arrow, finally notified us that our order of 5K STM32H743IIK6 chips will finally be delivered! Previously, they had told us in March of this year (after moving it from December last year), then moved it to December this year, and then moved it to May of next year.
We have had everything set to go to produce 5K of the H7 Plus forever now but have been waiting on these chips indefinitely. The reason for building the OpenMV Cam RT1062 was to get around this chip shortage so we could get back into production.
So, it looks like we will have the OpenMV Cam H7 Plus back in stock soon too. That said, we will not be opening up pre-orders for this camera until we have stock in hand and ready to ship. More shenanigans could ensue... but, we believe the imminent delivery of these chips is real now.
As for future production plans beyond the 5K we have parts to build with, SingTown has notified us that they are willing to resell through us to keep the system (along with the H7 R2) in stock as long as there is market demand.

Finally, @iforce2d found our OpenMV Cam H7 and has been using it to create a precision image capture system for a pick-and-place machine he wants to build using our global shutter image sensor! Checkout his video below:
Anyway, that's all folks!
