no problems with V4FX !

(when you are not using them)

so whats wrong with early retirenment?

Antti
PS I have also identified ML405 as the next best thing to buy
... a long time ago
and have given up looking for it
also a long time ago

yes, - I know the problems with V4FX are now all solved as Xilinx
can confirm, but it still takes time til the V4Fx based things
come really really available

The first volume production of the ML405 (XC4VFX20-FF672-10CES4)
will be available for sale in late June 06. That's less then
2 months from now, so I hope that your nest egg is well
funded. :-)

All of the initial volume of the XC4VFX20 devices had been
prioritized and allocated to customer sockets over the eval
boards. Since we are using long lead time manufacturing to
keep the costs and prices down it has been longer than
expected to get these boards available for sale. We expect to
do much better with the next generation.

Is your calendar reliable ? I mean, i don't care about marketing
and i only want to know when i can get it for sure from AVNET in
Europe.

Would it be possible to get a user's manual + schematics in advance to
prepare some future designs ?

This board was designed by my group and the production manufacturing is
on target, so there so be no problems with Avnet selling you one in July.

We are not planning on releasing the user documentation ahead of the product.
