We currently have a fleet of 50 E-series devices deployed. About half of these are 3G and the other half are LTE. I recently went to the Particle Store to purchase more E-series LTE to upgrade our remaining 3G units.
The store had no stock. I contacted sales, and they told me the E-series has been discontinued!!
Firstly, I’m pretty disappointed that I never received an end of life, or product obsolescence notice. That is standard practice when product plans depend on these modules.
Secondly, anyone know a way of acquiring E-series LTE (North America E402) modules? Anyone selling unused modules they have from an old project?
I’m debating whether we create a PCB adapter board that converts the e-series footprint to a B-series. I would be intrigued if that already exists somewhere, or if anyone else is in the market for something like this?
