On atmel.com the
http://www.atmel.com/dyn/product... product card of AP7000 says:
"Not recommended for new design"

What is the recommended platform for new embedded-linux based design please?

Prolly an ARM-based AT91, the AVR32 parts are much more focussed on the UC3 family which don't run Linux :-(

Thanks Squidgit. Could you propose a good development kit for that?

For what, the AT91 parts? Not really, there's a big old range of parts each with their own dev kit. Just spend some time floating around atmel.com and you'll find something.

There are also many more 3rd party dev boards for AT91 parts than for AT32 parts. Maybe have a look around at91.com to get some ideas :-)

-S.

p.s. Might be worth talking to your local atmel distributor. I don't know about yours but the guys I deal with are happy to lend out dev kits for free for a period of weeks/months if there's a chance they'll sell some units. A very useful service if you're interested in evaluating a few options.

There are post a little here and there all over the forum. It semms like Atmel is shifting development time over to UC3, but have not canceled the AP7. They say they are selling them quite good so.

Our local Atmel distributor confirmed priorities shifted onto UC3. Nevertheless he said the AP7 has been a best seller, and thus distribution goes on.
