December 2021 Technical Bulletin

IN THIS BULLETIN: New firmware versions are being released for NV9USB, NV10USB and BV20 products. Due to the global chip shortage, and ongoing issues with semi-conductor supply, we have adapted these products to allow us to source alternative components, therefore ensuring a stable supply of NV9, NV10 & BV20 variants. All future orders will include this latest firmware to ensure the devices support multiple alternative semi-conductors and we will explain how to identify this in the build revision. This new firmware will be automatically used for all future orders and is backwards compatible.
