Since October 2012 we work at the bring-up of 30 systems. Thanks to the sponsoring we are able to lend the systems to interested developers and users for the time they take part in the project. Not covered by the sponsoring is the GPS-module and any kind of tools for the firmware development. Feel free to get in contact with us if you like to get involved.

Many thanks to our sponsors:
