We recently purchased this part from Digikey, and we would like to inquire if the supplied part includes the state of the C3-Mini modules. We are interested to know if they come pre-programmed with firmware or if they have been refurbished.

Yes, that part comes pre-programmed with AWS IoT ExpressLink firmware. All of our stock come new directly from the manufacturer, and they are not refurbished.
