Ha ha. I have a cool CorStarter-STM32 Kit that Richard at Image Craft sent me to get some airtime on EE TImes. What should I do with it, do you think?  I only have one.

@David Ashton, you're right. I probably should (and you have a good chance of winning it, too!).

@Susan - "(and you have a good chance of winning it, too!)"

I would if were in the US, they don't like sending stuff to Aussies   (I think that started some years ago when we won the Americas Cup :-)  But as I am planning on coming to EELive, he could keep it for me....

But I have to win the comp first, and there is always stiff competition.....

@Susan....I just had a look at the specs and it's an awesome board.  With all that I/O and speed, the sky's the limit.  But I don't even know C yet - I'm still playing with Picaxes in Basic - but what an incentive to learn C......

Hope to see you at EELive - be good to put faces to all the names - but not 100% sure I'll make it yet, hold thumbs.....

Oh cool. I'm glad it sounds interesting. Yes, my fingers are crossed -- er, holding thumbs(?). If you do think you'll make it to EE Live, i'll keep the kit for you. Otherwise I'll give it Caleb for caption contest. Thanks!

@Susan, no, just give it to Caleb.....I have a couple of dev boards that I have not even got around to powering up yet....including an ST Discovery board which I bought to do the recent MCU course.  And the Caption comps always do well when there is an extra prize.

As I keep telling everyone, I need to win the lotto and retire, so I have time for the interesting stuff.....

@TarraTarra!  Yes, and I actually use it sometimes!  I don't have Susan's email address and though I could probably get it, I rarely chat with her to this length.  So you'll just have to put up with my blather occasionally :-)

Specs?

The article was thin on specs - what frequency, features, power? I believe ST will use this to promote its fab technology. I would be curious on how this SOI technology compares with bulk TSMC/GloFlo.
