Postby AtomSoft » Thu Jan 09, 2014 8:57 pm

Ive been wanting to buy a XMOS for a while already. I finally can buy one in piece and they have none in Digikey. Im in the US... and wanted to get the "XCARD XK-1A" Im not rich and been busy just making ends meat ... hence why i havent obtained one yet. Can someone point me somewhere i can get the XK-1A please.

Have you taken a look at the XMOS startKIT? It might better suite your needs as it has equal processing power but integrated debugger and more I/O and much cheaper than the XK-1A.

Not sure if it has more GPIO but seems cheap and a good place to start...

But none in stock. I think im going to have to either wait more (again) or save and get the

XK-SK-L2-ST - SLICEKIT STARTER KIT

Its $150 which isnt that bad but raising this $80 to get the XK-1A to start was a hassle. (shipping cost too)

.... Only if i could buy the XTAG2... i could make my own boards.... but guess what... none in stock...

There are no LEAD TIMES and no info... its like GOD doesnt want me to touch XMOS...

Like what the heck!

Since this seems like i am never going to get a XMOS and XTAG... I will design my own of both... I just need someone who can program a XS1_L1_64LQFP with the XTAG-2 firmware and send me it. Ill pay for the it np... Ill design a XTAG2 of my own and a XK-1A

Can someone help me on that note?
