All,

I got my STK500 yesterday from AVNET for $79 (pre-order). The lead time is suppose to be end of March but seem like the supply is here. I check Digikey and they quote 3/24 shipping date (instead of April). So get ready for those who are waiting to get the STK500 after a long wait, it might be gone soon.

I'm impressed with the board so far just by looking at it. Well build and a lot of features.

The STK500 is available in Germany for quite q while now :-D
Prices between DM 230 - 270

You seem to live in the U.S. and can't buy it yet??? Reimport it from Germany! Contacts available

Very odd...

We ordered 3 STK-200 boards for our 'Embedded Systems' course and got 3 STK-500's instead. They were ordered from a company called 'Elfa', in Sweden.

The boards are pretty neat, but after a quick session at the lab, we noticed two major problems:

- there are no mounting holes in the board! The course assignment is to develop a software for a small race-car model. Its going to be hard to try to attach the baord to the car base.

- the chip sockets and port headers are aligned in such a way that it makes removal of the chips (with anything other than a chip-removing tool) very, very hard and risks damaging the pins

Other than that, no problems so far. Even run my own version of blinking lights on it.
