I just completed combining EVK1100 schematic with peripherial multiplexing map. Please find the pin usage in the attachment.

It comes handy when one wants to find a free pin for devices on the prototyping area.

It was very sobering to see that despite mind-blowing heap of GPIO pins (109) only a handful remain for free use.

Yeah, If I knew what a lack of user GPIO the EVK1100 had we wouldn't have bothered with this board at all. (Lack of research on our part but then what devboard doesn't have user GPIO, Oh wait, I found it.) It has a lot of on board I/O features that make the board attractive but if you need to drive other off board logic then "oh well sorry". Many other boards have jumpers to isolate built in IO devices but I don't see that here.

It was nice of Atmel to leave enough pins just to attach some logic to CS3 as SRAM like logic. We are interfacing a Xilinx CPLD to our board get more IO so we are not getting totally screwed. POS.
