LPC2387 chips with date codes after the 36th week of 2008 have the USB host functionality that is listed on their data sheets, while those made before do not.
Panda is not advertised with USB host capability, however the schematic has switchable 15k resistors that are only useful in host mode. The pictures show devices with older date codes.
Will Panda boards be shipping with recent date code devices, or older ones pre-dating the USB host functionality?
(Yes, I realize that the Domino has usb host, however JTAG is apparently a must as I can not use .NET in this application - switching out the CPU on a panda for a more recent one may be simpler than hacking in JTAG)
