I was surprised to find that no one has mentioned the new AVR-TV episode was available. I got it through iTunes but it is also available from http://www.avrtv.com/.

Stick around to the end, there is an 'Almost an Announcement' to send you into the new year.

You can have my mac when you pry my cold dead fingers off of it.

It was mentioned by Rain (bloody-orc) and David (daqq) on the 22nd in the AVRTV thread. At that time the email address at the end didn't work, but I have been told that eivind has since fixed it.

Was that a ... STK500 replacement at the end?

Not exactly. It's a STK600, the brand-new (and unreleased AFAIK) "super STK500" board. Better than the STK500, but more expensive, and is targeted at companies rather than hobbyists. It's not a replacement, and will be sold alongside the STK500.

The "mystery" is the chip itself. My money's on a new AVR-32 family line.

The new AVRstudio 4.13 service pack 2 includes the new STK600 manual in the help. According to it, the AVR32 chips are supported on the STK600 (see the manual for the exact chips and adapter board part numbers).

Oh, c'mon Dean - you can't read the chip number?

(maybe it's an unmarked chip)

I would have been frustrated if after just getting the STK500 that it was going to go obsolete. I wonder what goodies the 600 provides.

The STK500 won't be obsolete, it will continue to have at least as much goodness as it does now. As for the STK600 goodies, you can do a search on site. I believe it was Chuck who published pictures, gave information, and answered questions about a beta STK600 unit.

Wow, this thing is awesome. You just pop in the socket that you want. I wonder how much it will cost.

Circa $600. You'd have all your questions answered if you did a search on the forums.

No, it was Cliff, but it's an honor being misidentified as him.

Ah! Instead of creating the address, they have modified the video...

That's one way of doing it...

Oooh - is that a TQFP socket I see at the end? I thought that those things were crazy expensive...

Jup they did change the Email in the video.

And about the TQFP... well it's ATMEL! They are debugging the thing with 3 JTAG ICE MK2's aswell ;) those too are crazy expensive. It's all relative (as a smart man once said).
