We have some good news to share. Caravel is now fully functional for all updated OpenMPW and chipIgnite shuttles in fabrication. Check out the video from Andrew Wright, who explains how the previous challenges were uncovered and corrected.

@Andrea Vedanayagam Is this means early silicon testing of chipIgnite 2204C & 2206Q shows fully functional caravel?

We are still doing speed and cross temp testing as it is the first time we've needed to automate this but no (zero) issues so far on the new Caravel.

Are we will be using same nucleo (MPW2) development board for bring-up? or there is new one?

The bringup for new silicon (CI 2206, MPW-6+, GFMPW-0) does not require Nucleo or the gpio diagnostic. The silicon can be brought up using a basic M.2 development board. We will be enabling an automated test framework for general tests using the same Nucleo in the future.
