As I have ordered BeagleBoard-xM from Digikey, the expected shipment
date was at the end of June, exacly as I expected. However, yesterday
the expected shipment date on my order changed to the middle of
November - half a year layer!
Is the demand for the new BB so big that the lead time is so long? Is
there a chance that could receive my board as I originally expected?
The -xM is not yet in production. In other words, we are no yet building any boards. We hope to start production soon, but we still have issues to work out on the board. The board is not yet ready for production. The leadtime being quoted is there at the discretion of the distributors as they have not been given delivery dates from us, because, we are not yet in production.
Any idea when we’d be able to order XM? Will that be end of this year?

You can place orders with Digi-Key now by visiting BeagleBoard.org - buyxM.
As Gerald stated, these are all pre-orders. Further, we are still
working through the export classification, so many international
orders may not be accepted at this time. We had that same problem on
the initial BeagleBoard launch and expect to work through that as well
with in a few weeks.
Thanks for the reply Jason…
I guess my question was framed incorrectly - my bad. I was intending to find out when I might have an XM in hand if I pre-ordered it…
Please let me know.

as said before, nobody knows at the moment...
Any idea whether the ECCN process has to wait for the board issues to
be resolved first, please? Thanks.
The ECCN issue has be resolved as far as I knaow and no it has nothing to do with board issues.
Thanks very much. It sounds as if we should be able to pre-order
"across the pond" soon, then.
I certianly hope so. My doctor is going to increase my blood pressure medication, of this I have no doubt!:^)
Is this something you can use additional hardware-designer assistance
on, or would additional people just get in the way at this time?

This is not a really hardware design issue. Let’s just say it is deep in the bowles of silicon.
But, thank you for the offer.
