XMOS XC-1 Kit or the XC-1A Kit Confusion

Postby seulater » Mon Jan 11, 2010 5:30 am

So i was ready to order a XC-1 kit from Digikey today, when i noticed that DigiKey has two kits for the XC-1, yet nothing describing what the difference is.

What is the Differnece in DK# 880-1013-ND and DK# XCARD XC-1A-ND
Both say they are the XC-1 kit with the later only having a diference that its called an XC-1A kit.

Here are the 2 direct links.

The XC-1 is obsolete, and has been replaced by the XC-1A. The latter has lots of advantages over the XC-1.

Just to be a bit more explicit about the XC-1A. It is a revision of the XC-1 that esily allows you to run the board without a USB connection. This means it has onboard SPI flash memory for storing your software and a 5V in. Apart from that, there is minimal difference - see here for full spec https://www.xmos.com/xc1a

On two occasions I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
