    For several people that have been asking -- the QS80 Ver 3 is nearly ready.
    Bit more software testing before it can be called done.

    I have several people asking to be put on the list. If you sent an email - you're on the list. But, I haven't answered all the emails to confirm this yet.

    Quoted from acebathound:

    I'm not sure where Ed is at with his tester, maybe he can respond here. He's a busy guy.. I'm sure the parts sales keep him *very busy* through the year & I think he still has a day job at this point so his boards take a back-seat at times. Anyway it looked very promising that his tester would be out last year (in terms of what it has said on his website) but still says that it's in the testing phases. Hopefully it will be out soon as it does have more bells and whistles and I'm sure many people would still buy it even if they've built one of these testers with Marco's ROM.

    My other job has had me working long hours for more than a year now. We've even hired several new engineers to help distribute the load - and we just got busier. So all my board work proceeds at a snail's pace.

    I recently finished the IRQ circuit for the new test fixture version. Old test fixture had simple 'active' and 'inactive' indicators on it. "Active" would mean the IRQ line appeared to be working and not stuck high or low. "Inactive" simply meant it was either sitting high or low. Inactive could mean a stuck IRQ line or simply running the part of the code that wasn't using IRQs -- it was difficult to differentiate between the two. Current version has "Active", "Inactive" and "Failed" indicators and can differentiate between a stuck low (typically how the RIOT IRQs failed) or inactive IRQ line.

    The problem is - getting time to work on this. Only an hour per week - if I'm luckly. That is why progress has been so slow with this.

    No update. I have first build but have been swamped with both work and orders since early January.
    My day job slows down (temporarily) at the end of this month. I *hope* to get the software done in that time frame.
    Due to my lack of time for assembly, I most probably will be offering this as a kit this time.
