Aren't we all ? :P

We also need to first gather some technical requirements for PCB manufacture (we are not yet sure who it will be). USP (University of São Paulo, Brasil) got in
touch with us and might be our partner in PCB assembly, at least for prototypes and testing. (It's not official yet, Werner is "in charge" of speaking with them
and matching goals) :P

Also we are stuck ATM with some legal issues (TI Calypso) and trying to reach a fitting solution. Might take a while.

So stay tuned, and of course any help on those issues will be highly appreciated.
