Anyone know of any distributors with any of the XMEGA parts in stock?

Nobody. They are not yet in full production. You can get samples from Atmel, however.

LOL--few if any of us have even received samples yet. And those are indeed marked E.S. from reports, and appear to be the chip rev. G which has an errata list suggesting it is nowhere near ready to put into a production batch of our boards.

But we can dream...

Maybe we can have a guessing contest to see when DigiKey or Mouser or other distis actually show a stock level for a model of Xmega. Lessee--the errata list need not be clean, bu I speculate that more than one turn will be needed to clean it up enough for production. Say 4 weeks/turn. Then another 8 weeks for a batch to reach distis. It is mid-June. My guess is therefore 14-September-2008.

Atmel Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) recently announced the AVR XMEGA microcontrollers family. ...
The first devices, ATxmega128A1 and ATxmega64A1 are both offered in 100-pin TQFP and BGA packages and are available now. Volume prices for 10k units are US$3.75 and US$3.50, respectively. Other XMEGA devices will be available during 2Q or 3Q of 2008.

Note that that this is the EXACT SAME WORDING as the late-February product announcement.

For the "contest", let's say that EW is already disqualified. On 26-Feb he speculated "single digit weeks" for samples. That expired about mid-May. ;)

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

Thanks, I've been requesting samples on their website a few times now with nothing coming in :(.

Thanks for the information. I've been curious when the XMega was coming, and was expecting a realistic appearance sometime this Fall. Late summer would be great (although this means school would be starting around this time :( )
