Digi-Key out of stock

and no word available when tey will have stock again. Is there another retailer where one can purchase a Beagleboard? Would appreciate a link or point towards where one can order a unit today.

Digikey is the only supplier. They receive 200 units a week, and they
should know this.

Jason, please shout at them again. Until they get their systems sorted,
perhaps someone could add this information (prominently) the FAQ.

D/K is the only distributor. They received 200 boards on Monday. They are having IT issues in that they can’t handle partial shipments against an order, it does not show up in their system. They are receiving 200 boards a week from the contract manufacturer.

I just check the D/K site and they show boards in stock. Typically they will only show a QTY of 1 for EVMs and it is not an indication of total quantity they have. You should be able to order now.

Gerald

The D/K site does show that there is stock available for order.

OK, I assumed it didn't since so many are asking about it.

Thanks!

I checked the DigiKey website, and they show ONE board in inventory. I
placed my order.

Knowing they have 200 a week coming in will be handy- good news indeed.

It can change at any time as demand is very high.

I created two FAQs for this

Please correct/extend if you like.

I'm not sure they have stock. I've been backordered since August 14th.

FYI, i placed my order last week on the 18th when it said 0 stock, and they just sent me an email saying it shipped, the live support says 7-8 weeks restock time, but i'd imagine thats just the i don't know answer.

I can promise that the restock of 7-8 weeks is not because they don’t have them sooner than that.

I just ordered mine this past Sunday, and I received an e-mail from D/
K just now saying it shipped...

Are you guys waiting on production of the new rev that fixes ehci?

No, we are in production now.

They have stock. I would ping them again and make sure they did not loose your order.

Gerald

It is now moving south on a UPS truck. So there is the depth of the
queue.

When will the Rev. C beagle board be released ? When can I place the
order for Rev. C board?

Thanks!

How many revisions have there been? What is the difference between the
revs?

I just got my board today, so all that were back ordered I would
expect them soon.

Only B4 and B5 have been shipped by Digi-Key. B5 fixes an issue that
causes the serial port to hang after several hours, but a work-around
in software has been released, so this is unlikely to affect you. You
can convert a B4 board in to B5 by removing C70 per

We don't even have prototypes of Rev C yet, but it is a work in
progress. The boards have already been released to fab, so there is
no chance of changing anything. The only thing planned to be fixed is
the EHCI port. It will still take about 2-3 months to test the Rev C
board out and get quantities fabricated for production deliveries.
