The Atmel NGW100
When I read about the small footprint web-enabled microcontroller (the NGW 100) I was impressed asd I tried to get one. Getting one at Arrow seemd possible but after a USD 65 pricetag I would get an equal amount charged for shipping. At the border it would be taxed which would bring the price for one NGW100 kit at roughly USD 175. In euro's that's much less but it would still be close to €130. Quite a lot of money for one kit of questionable application.
So I took a look at Digikey to find out that I could get two kits for the same €135. Well, actually the
total costs were &euro 160 for the two of them. So if I manage to sell the second one for €80 me and the
other party would be a lot cheaper off.
For some reason, Digikey only charge €18 for shipping. via UPS (2nd day to Europe!)
See all of the high res pictures I took of the NGW100 kit in my online album at http://www.mijnalbum.nl/Album=HJREVWHS.
Go fur it!
So now I got myself an NGW 100 kit. NGW is short for Network GateWay. And that's also the main purpose of the machine: in factory it is configured as a router. It has two RJ45 sockets. From top to bottom the connectors on the far left side of the NGW are:
