It's an exciting time at the factory as we begin assembling parts together into the OSSIC X Prototype 2. We received the last of the internal circuit boards yesterday from the supplier, which was the last major component needed to begin piecing all the internals together with the structural hardware.
With the boards in hand, our electrical engineer left for the lab to begin the integration of the OSSIC X internal electrical system. As of today we have received all the plastic parts, cable assemblies, and most of the metal parts. We set up the actual prototype production line at the factory, and prepared the necessary fixtures, equipment, and tools to support the assembly process.
We are now starting with some of the major sub-assemblies, and reviewing and revising the work assembly instructions with the supplier. The assembly process is proving to be complex, but rewarding as we see all the various parts of the OSSIC X come together.
