I just did a quick search on digikey to see if I could find the JTAGICE II and I noticed that the ATSTK1000 is now going for $860. In fact, it looks like all the development tools have gone up in price on digikey. What gives? I was thinking about getting an STK1000 because it has an LCD already on it and I didn't think it would be worth my time to hack one on my NGW, now I am having second thoughts for sure. The cost of a colour Microtips 320x240 LCD with a touch screen at mouser is less then $200, which is less then the price increase even is!
Does anyone know whats going on?
