preloaded with a demo
2021-08-01: I re-created this page on my self-hosted web server.
2019-11-18: I registered at Efinix. These areas on the Support part of the website requires a login: Efinity Software, Design Support, Knowledgebase, Forum. And got a quick reply to that registration - I'm in already. Nice!
2019-11-18: I created this page. I picked up my package at the local UPS delivery point in the afternoon. Inside a cardboard box was a ziplock bag , inside that a small bubble-wrap envelope and inside that a aniti-static ziplock bag with labe "CS-FIREANT-01" which comntained the FireAnt board and the unsoldered headers.
2019-11-15: got a "your order has shipped" notice.
2019-10-15: got a serial number for registration at Efinix
2019-08-07: the project was funded.
2019-07-20: I ordered 1 x Early Bird Single FireAnt x1 $29.00, header unsoldered, shipping $8, a total of $37.
