Already received four kits. I had ordered them in June, got them on October. The debugger will support all devices with SPI By Wire technology. TI is offering free shipping right now.

Hi,
mouser is charging 40$ shipping for stuff up to 2.5 Kg or some fixed weight. If any one is interested in getting more stuff ffrom mouser then we all can order together and save on shipping. I would be keen on ordering some 2,3 boards and a few douzen AVRs(atmega32), incase we all come to some consensus we all can order together. This board could be a gr8 product for RI store or for extreme electronics.

I ordered them on the TI's website. It has free shipping right now with the new ti estore. The device samples are free and if you can manage to make PCB's for SMD packages, the debugger will support them too, if they have the SPI By Wire protocol. Some issues you may face while ordering is, that fedex will charge you approx Rs 300, irrespective of any duties on the product. It's really pathetic, if you have to pay fedex 300rs while the board itself is Rs. 200.

I dont get this, is the cost charged by the fedex showed at the tiestore site? I was just about to register my order for 2 there, but thought of checking in here first.

Shipping is free, though fedex India charges Rs. 300 on anything you get couriered to India, apart from documents.
