We were selling just from Actel initially, and from distribtuion through their order system they had not yet populated their online system. Both Avnet and Future now have it listed thanks

Mouser and Avnet still don't show that part number as available. I left a message with Avnet asking for a quote for that part number. Is there any other source that has it available right now?

It's funny you should ask, we just began shipping our breakout card last week. http://www.actel.com/products/hardware/devkits_boards/mixedsignal_dc.aspx

It looks like this board has the same 100-pin mixed-signal header that my SmartFusion eval kit has. Does anyone know if anyone makes an expansion card for this header? I found that I can get the headers/connectors from Samtec, but it would be nice to have a basic, premade breakout board of some kind. Something like Digilent makes for their boards with the Hirose connectors (which I've bought). Those are pretty cool. Anyway, the Actel header pins are spaced .05", so it makes it difficult to even find a jumper wire to push onto them without bending the pins around them. I hope Actel (or someone) comes out with a convenient way to connect to this header!

I'm just looking at the photo of this development kit and thinking about the amount of computing power on this little board ... and comparing it to the stuff we were designing 30 years ago ... it's a different world!
