As you can see in the image below, surprisingly there are only few informations on the back of the board. It seems to be launched in Kickstarter but going to AnalogLamb github there’s no information about the Fish32 Seed Board yet.

The board can be pre-ordered for $49.99 here, and the availability is planned for September 15, 2018.
