The future of Pycom

  • administrators

    Dear community,

    Good news! Pycom Ltd did indeed go into administration on the 16th of September but it looks like we will have a new owner soon. They are Season Group. SG will provide us with more working capital to continue develop new products, have more inventory in place, and more importantly help all our customers take their concept into production! Once the acquisition of Pycom assets is complete, we will be able to provide you with a more accurate outlook but rest assured Pycom products will be available and better than before. Thank you for your patience and ongoing support.

    Cheers, Pycom (forever)

  • @tlanier thank you for these nice words, we really appreciate the feedback.

  • @Daan-Pape Just to let others know, we have converted our GPy application over to Walter with good results. Key points include:

    • Our hardware design has not changed. The Walter was a plug-in replacement for the GPy.
    • Minor changes to the code were required due to different pin assignments.
    • The biggest change we made was switching from using the _thread module to using the asyncio module. This change was just an improvement we made to our code. The _thread version also worked although MicroPython has limitations of what can be done in the interrupt routine (see Schedule for workaround).
    • All our code for talking directly to the modem with AT commands works perfectly. We do not use the Walter modem routines at all. The modem is backward compatible with the GPy.
    • One great improvement with Walter is the ability to reset the modem from the software directly.
    • Another great feature is that we can now run the latest version of MicroPython unchanged with Walter (a fork is not required).

    Thanks for the great work!

  • Hi everyone,

    After months of optimizing, testing and now finally getting things ready for certification (which is going to take place in November), precompliance testing has already been completed. We can now finally announce that we are going to launch the crowdfunding campaign on Crowd Supply very soon. As promised a few months ago I'm letting this know to everybody interested. You can subscribe on our campaign updates via the campaign page on

    Kind regards,

  • @DEFRAINE-JM any further updates on what's happening with Pycom apart from Season Group buying the assets?

  • @Danilo-Diaz Can you reach directly to me to discuss about use case and how you want to use the module. Have you looked at the F1 module familly on SGW website ?

  • @Cees_Meijer I'm wondering the same. I don't need any Pycom modules (we have like 5000 and we were waiting for some that we ordered past year, but no response on that from Pycom). Btw, If someone needs Pycom modules (L01 and L04), we can sell some.

    The important thing to me is that they start to make some responses to plan using this awesome tech that they have developed. Please say something @Xykon ! We want to work with you!

  • Hello everyone!

    I've been a long-time user and fan of Pycom's MCUs, and I'm considering incorporating them into an upcoming large-scale project. However, I'm eager to understand the future roadmap for Pycom's products to make an informed decision.

    Here are some questions I have:

    • MCU Portfolio: Are there any new MCUs or updates to existing ones in the pipeline?
    • Scalability: How well do these MCUs scale for large deployments? Has anyone had experience with this?
    • Cost: Has anyone had recent experience with bulk purchases?
    • Development Path: Is there any insider info or hints on the future development and support of Pycom products?
    • Test Units: Has anyone had the opportunity to test new units or prototypes?

    If anyone from Pycom is reading this, your input would be especially valuable. I'm excited about the products and would love to continue using them in my projects.

    Thanks in advance for any insights you can provide!

  • @Cees_Meijer I am not paying for it. When I bought my devices I got free access as I recall. I'm currently just using the pycom device for a hobby project (connected thermometer at our local beach)

  • @Åke-Forslund That surprises me. I had two pybytes subscriptions as well, for testing, and they stopped the monthly billing just a few months ago. Are you still paying for it ?

  • @Cees_Meijer The pybytes platform is also up and running (and actually working better than it did last summer) so my device is still delivering measurements. Hopefully it'll stay up until fall. After that I will have time to look for alternatives for my small project (unless Pycom starts showing lifesigns again, then I'll happily keep the device running on the existing platform)

  • @DEFRAINE-JM I agree: It looks dead. Yet, this forum is still online, and so is the documentation. So someone must still be paying the bills ?

  • @Cees_Meijer Hello, I think PYCOM is "Dead"! I have already experienced this situation with the AMIGA where there have been many takeover offers to end up being overtaken by the technology which continues to advance and the product is "extinguished"!
    If this is not the case, the buyer does not communicate more than Pycom! which does not bode well!

  • The new year has been here for a while, but we are still waiting for the future... Posting here is a long shot, but does anybody know anything about the future of the Pycom products ? We basically built a business-model on the FiPy, and even though I still have significant stock it would be nice to know what is coming next.
    What will happen to this Forum ? Who is actually keeping this ( and the documantation ) online ?

  • @Axy-Pycom The PyGo have never actually worked, won't you release at least some usable firmware before trying to sell it? Who would want to buy a non working system?
