31 October 2022 – stock replenished!

Folks

We’ve back in stock after a couple of weeks of limited supply.

You can order here. **

Thankfully, the global semiconductor market has started to show some signs of improving from its acute shortage problems over the past couple of years. Although some supply issues remain, unfortunately we’re now seeing significantly increased pricing from device manufacturers, costs that we’re currently absorbing.

** The slow page loading for the payment portal that we were encountering should now be resolved.

March 19 2022: Back in stock!

Folks

I am now glad to report that we’re now back in stock.

You can order here. **

The global semiconductor market continues to remain difficult, with traditional distribution channels still unreliable for parts sourcing.

** We’re aware of the shop pages loading and running slowly right now, we’re working on this: they do load, but anticipate a delay: apologies for any inconvenience.

Availability update 2 March 2022

Folks,

We’re anticipating new stock around the week beginning 15 March.

As you may be aware, there’s an ongoing global semiconductor shortage, and this situation combined with strong demand continues to make it challenging to maintain continual stock.

Many thanks , Howard

December 28 2021: Back in stock, and price update

Folks

I am now glad to report that we’re now back in stock after a couple of weeks: we continue to struggle with parts shortages.

You can order here. **

Due to those parts shortages, and the significantly increased costs on those parts as a result, for the first time since the FUNcube Dongle Pro Plus was released, we’ve taken the decision to increase the price to £149.99 excluding tax. This price increase will be from 1 January 2022.

Before 1 January 2022, you can still order at the original price of £124.99 excluding tax.

** We’re aware of the shop pages loading and running slowly right now, we’re working on this: they do load, but anticipate a delay: apologies for any inconvenience.

In the meantime, we wish you all seasons greetings, and thank you for your custom.

Back in stock: 14 October 2021

We’re happy to announce we have new stock available now. Please follow this secure link to order.

The global chip supply situation continues to disrupt our ability to maintain stock levels. While we continue to try to mitigate against this by ordering ahead, it’s a game of whac-a-mole: supply of devices is very sporadic. Moreover, we are seeing increasing evidence of speculative stockpiling of chips in the supply chain which severely distorts pricing.

Update on availability 20 September 2021

Folks,

A combination of continued high demand and the global chip shortage has meant we’ve just run out of stock again.

We’re working with our board assembler to set up for another production run, and we nearly have all the parts ready. There’s just one part we’re waiting for confirmation on, (it’s sourced, we’re just organising the requisite paperwork as it’s a new distributor for us) then we’ll be in a position to schedule another production run in the next couple of weeks.

Many thanks , Howard

Back in stock: 4 September 2021

We’re happy to announce that we have new stock!

Please follow this secure link to order.

We’re being increasingly hit by the global component shortages, mainly for certain semiconductors, which has led to us being out of stock for some weeks.

Despite our own forward planning, we’ve been let down by some major distributors who haven’t met their projected lead times, to the extent where we’re having orders cancelled on us on the scheduled day of dispatch, after ordering several months ahead.

The situation isn’t improving. Increasingly, as well as distributors, we’re having to use brokers to source parts, but quotes are coming in at grossly inflated prices: being a broker is a good business to be in right now! So please be aware that we may have to adjust pricing appropriately in the near future to reflect this trend.

Stock & availability update, June 7 2021

Over the past month it’s proven difficult to keep stock, but we look forward to having stock ready within the next few days.

During the pandemic, we’ve seen a significant uptick in sales of the FUNcube Dongle, and this trend continues.

While we’ve managed to maintain stock for most of the past twelve months, it’s not been easy, and for the last month or so unfortunately we’ve been running on empty. The perfect storm combination of increased demand, logistics delays due to the pandemic, and more recently the global parts shortages, have all impacted our ability to maintain stock.

We look forward to updating inventory availability within the coming days. Thank you for your patience.
