EVK 1100 board has good expansion capability - all ports are avaliable on connectors mark as PA, PX, PB and PC.
one thing bother me - I can't find connector for so SMALL pinout - 0.05 inch pin to pin ( 1.287 mm ).
does anybody knows where can I find and buy connector for EVK 1100 board expansion 'slot' ?

EDIT:
answered by myself.
go to digi-key, search by : connectors male pin pitch 0.05 inch :oops:

finding a connector is not going to get you very far, now you have to somehow connect it to another board, most likely 0.1".

One would have thought Atmel would have stopped using such ridiculous small connectors on eval kits after the AT90USBKEY fiasco which had people making their own adaptor PCB.

I thought the idea behind an Evaluation Kit was to encourage people to evaluate the product and generate sales by making the eval kit EASY TO USE, not by placing ridiculous obstacles before them to overcome before they can even make a start.
