The OpenMV RT1062 Is Shipping Finally
Great news! The OpenMV Cam RT1062 is finally shipping!
It's taken a long time to get here since March, but, we are finally shipping new product! The boxes above account for 1300 cameras. We've sent 1600 units to the shipping warehouse so far and are finishing up the remaining 900 units out of the total 2500 being produced.
Anyway, we've got a few hundred orders to get out the door now. So, our shipping warehouse is packing orders right now and will start sending out shipments starting on Friday. If you have an order placed it should get on it's way over the weekend and through next week.
What about the new Shields?
Glad you asked! We've kicked off final prototype samples for all new shields with our contract manufacturer already and hope to have samples back in December. We will start building out small production builds of the new shields one after another based on what's most pressing to provide. Most likely we will offer the PoE Ethernet and PIR Shield first as these show off the new abilities of the OpenMV Cam RT1062.
What about the new Global Shutter and HDR camera modules?
We've kicked off prototype samples of all the new sensors. There's quite a bit of driver development work that has to be done to make them operational after we receive the parts. So, it will take more time before these new products are available for sale.
When is the OpenMV Cam H7 Plus coming back in stock?
We've already approved the order so our contract manufacturer will start production right after the OpenMV Cam RT1062 is finished being built. We are building 5000 units of the OpenMV Cam H7 Plus. Also, these units will work with the new camera modules (even the OpenMV Cam H7 too, however, we may have to disable the driver in our firmware by default pending flash space available).
Nothing, that's all folks! Except for... we are working on a new firmware release, documentation, and an IDE update. But, this is always the case.
And... we have a new website design we are working on that will launch soon. Better layout, videos in webpages, 3D models, step files for everything, Altium 365 schematic/pcb on product pages, and more. Stay tuned!

That's all folks!
