Whew, that's still pretty expensive when you consider that you can get a similar Digilent ZYBO board for US$125 academic or US$189 general.

I get the same message. I believe that you have to be attending college or some post secondary school to purchase this item. I purchased some items in the past and had to prove that I was attending college.

Please try the website below as this is where I found it at.

When I go to that URL this is the message that I get

For more information about this service or to inquire about local availability, please contact your local NI representative.

Perhaps it is because I have a Canadian IP address? Or is it "if you have to ask, you can't afford it!"

I was considering that this may be an easy way into learning LabView and creating test jigs (as  mention in my upcoming blog The ART of Test, part 3). I don't mind that it is aimed at students and a structured learning experience may be just what the doctor ordered.

I tried the website and I am unable to find a price for the development kit. It seems to want a part number and when I try and plug in "NI myRIO-1900" (or even "myRIO-1900", one of the parts with WiFi) it is unrecognized. I cannot find an equivalence to another NI part, and I quickly tired of the search. I do prefer it when I don't have to strain to get information. There is probably a simple link- I am just not seeing it.

I guess I will try to pin it down at EE Live (they have always been there so I hope they will be again).

I only wish we'd had this sort of technology available to us when I was a student!
