Message-ID: <CY4PR03MB3399B0CC076ED48608B681649BE29@CY4PR03MB3399.namprd03.prod.outlook.com> (raw)

Hello Jonathan,

Adding @Thahirally, Murtaza, maybe he can help us with some more details hardware-wise.

Unfortunately, the current mail format does not allow me to highlight the points of interest in the conversation.
