Looks interesting:

#2

Submitted my request ;D


#3

I did mine earlier got e-mail back, looks like I am in. ;D


#4

Looks like ST is taking the lead now in cortex-m3 and m4

It would have been NXP (like they did on ARM7) if they got their promised LPC1800 and LPC4000 on time… they are only about 2 years late :slight_smile:


#5

I sense ST based Fez on horizon.


#6

On this years Embedded World exhibition ST was givin away as many M3 starter kits as you needed! My friend got more than 10 and i bet he has an internet of things in his house :wink: But GHI was giving away Panda 2 so i wasnt that interested in ST kits;) So i recommend comming back next year if net mf booth will be there…


#7

GHI always have gifts and toys with anywhere we go, so always stop by when you can :slight_smile:

If not, then I will buy you a beer :slight_smile:


#8

Just got my email that one’s headed to Skewworks.


#9

I expected it sometime in November, but it magically appeared today!
(No shipment notification)


#10

Now, get cracking on that NETMF port!


#11

Yes,sir!!! :o


#12

The sad thing here is that the MCU on this board is one powerful beast, and yet it’s still cheaper in ones than the Atmel MCU used on the Netduino :frowning:


#13

I guess it was a question of implementing everything from scratch for STM32 or use code from porting kit for Atmel. Now is a different story 4.2PK has code for STM32.


#14

I noticed that too.

Now like godefroi said


#15

I just got one in the mail as well. i had forgotten about it.


#16

I wonder how hard it would be to get the PK code running on the Cortex-M4 version of the STM32. M4 is basically an M3 with a DSP and FPU tacked on…


#17

Which would be useless in NETMF unless you add native code for the DSP…still no completely suited


#18

Mine was waiting for me when I got home too. ;D


#19

Mine too. Now to find time to figure it out… Maybe by then one of you will have ported NETMF over to it :wink:

BTW, I also happened across this at just the right moment a few days ago and got another freebee. :slight_smile: I’ll have to find time for it too… Yea, that’s me in the first comment :smiley:
