DigiKey backorder woes

My beagleboard has been on late backorder for 5 days now, is there
anyway i can get digikey to tell me any thing rather than were
checking, or let me contact someone about that and then not get a
response, :frowning:

We are shipping them as fast as we can. I cannot comment on where you are in the line waiting because I do not know. Last count DK had 430 orders pending. We shipped 150 on Monday and hope to ship 100 more tomorrow. We expect to ramp to 300 next week and 500 the next.

Hey thanks for the quick response, i was actually able to goad some
more info out of DigiKeys support monkey, glad to see that you are
selling so many boards :slight_smile:

So far well over 7000 have been shipped. We had a vendor issue that shut us down for 3 weeks. Once you shut down the line it takes a while to get it running full steam again. But, we are back up and running now!

I had ordered it yesterday and checked with the online chat rep for
digikey. I was told they are showing a lead time of 19weeks!

I ordered mine on July 2nd and received an email from digikey this afternoon saying they shipped it.

We will ship 480 boards by tomorrow and 330 next week. That will clear the entire back order at DigiKey. Using my TI calculator, I cannot get that to add up to 19 weeks no matter how hard I try.

Please do not let the way that D/K is used to dealing with resistors and capacitors reflect on the reality of the Beagle production. They know the story but for whatever reason their system can’t handle partial shipments. All they can handle is when the entire order is completed.

If you want to know the story, ask me. I am Beagle production. So, to summarize, again, the lead time is NOT 19 weeks!!!

Gerald

See. I told you so.

Obviously, you need to use a HP calculator :slight_smile:

Actually, I did it all in my head, but I didn’t want to brag!

Hi!

entire back order at DigiKey. Using my TI calculator, I cannot get that to
add up to 19 weeks no matter how hard I try.

Great to hear that! I want to order many more!

yes, it's weird, i tagged along some other components with the
beagleboard order. and those components got stuck in the same ship. :>

If you want to know the story, ask me. I am Beagle production. So, to
summarize, again, the lead time is NOT 19 weeks!!!!!!

It must be great to be getting the boards out. else it feels constipated right?

anyway, congrats to getting them out again.

Gerald, there is only one solution, you need to post a daily mail here,
saying:

"everything is fine, D/K is wrong, go order, be happy, peace for all"

A good use for the blink tag in html mail :slight_smile:

no, not HTML mail. please. i was going to suggest that someone
official register a twitter account for the BB but, sadly, some
private person already grabbed that twitter name. darn.

rday

i try to put #beagleboard on all my BeagleBoard tweets. i can start sending tweets whenever Gerald has something important to say. my twitter is http://twitter.com/jadon.

Just to let you guys know, My beagleboard shipped today the 28th of
July, and i ordered on the 10th of July, just to give you guys some
perspective

For additional perspective, that time will shorten over the next week or so.
