Just out of curiosity, how is it that the "unexpected success" caused the "compliance issue"? (Seriously, nothing untoward intended - just curious. And, I know there are a couple of threads on the "compliance issue", which I have tl;dr'd.)
I guess what I am really asking is (and, quite seriously, I have no facts or data to go on here) "How was the compliance thing unexpected?"
It wasn't unexpected. It's always been known that the educational release would need all the certifications. The initial batch however, was intended as a development board run which doesn't require the same level of certification. However, with the massive order received, it's doesn't really class as a dev board any more - at least according to RS and Farnell.
Had we just sold the 10k, with low demand, certification could have waited. Now it cannot.

I've been saying "Mucho" to my Spanish friend a lot more lately. It means a lot to him.
