Michele,


Not quite sure what you mean. They RBBB's ship with Arduino Diecimila bootloaders.

Is this a reference to the Wiring Board (Atmega128)?

Yes, it is.
I meant a Wiring (the other project) board.
It seems that the only place to get a board is from Colombia.
And just all ready, no kit.

OK, the customers have spoken. Time to get busy on this one.
Spark Fun also sells the Wiring Board.

Oh - yeah - mega128, maybe even a mega1281 / mega2561 chips...All the same pinouts, but some somewhat different functionality / features. Like more hardware serial ports.

I just figured I would voice my support for this. The wiring boards seem to be way overpriced...

If you could make a kit that would support the atmega128/1281 that would be fantastic. The TQFP (or VQNF) package of the IC may be intimidating for some hobbyists but you could offer a board w/ soldered IC kit or something.

I will be in line to get a kit if you support this.

If you do this, make sure you offer a kit with everything unsoldered.
I simply love soldering TQFP parts. Beats DIP any day. :)
