So it looks like the AT91SAM7S series of chips are actually going to be available from places like DigiKey soon. I just ordered the last AT91SAM7S64-IAR evaluation kit from DigiKey which should be here in a couple days. Has anybody played with this yet? It comes with the J-LINK JTAG USB adapter and a 32-kB code-size-limited version of the IAR ARM compiler (full functionality)!
Here are the details on the IAR site: http://www.iar.com/Products/?nam...
These chips look VERY promising, and DigiKey is listing the 32K flash / 8K SRAM version (AT91SAM7S32) at only $6.24! The specs on these are awesome...
entire chip runs off of 3.3V supply (5V tolerant IO)
internal oscillator w/ PLL
SPI, TWI, dual enhanced USARTS with USB 2.0, PWM, timers, etc
Here's an image of the eval board:
