The clones will flood in soon.


Maybe, maybe not. Could be only a few weeks, but could be many months as well. The limiting factor will be the availability of the Atmel part. Typically, a new part gets "rationed" out to the high-volume, strategic customers (like Arduino) until the production and inventory catches up to the general demand. I'm not sure what the word is at the moment of the availability of this particular part, but I wouldn't be surprised if they have long lead times for anyone but a select few customers at this point.
WiFi shields/Yun too expensive? Embeddedcoolness.com is now selling the RFXduino nRF24L01+ <-> TCP/IP Linux gateway: Simpler, more affordable, and even more powerful wireless Internet connectivity for *all* your Arduino projects! (nRF24L01+ shield and dev board kits available too.)

Yeah, true. But are Arduino and its distributors going to face the same problem, I notice the store only has 11 left.
For something like this it'd be nice to have the authentic stuff, however a few spare clones would be handy for creating network applications, or something that could possibly damage the board.

The IDE tools configuration looks amazingly similar to mpide

People have said in the past that the official support was going to be based on the MPIDE stuff...
(grr.  I can't find exactly WHERE that was said, though.)  It would be pretty foolish to do differently, IMO.

What is that?
Accelerate to 88 miles per hour.

MPIDE


What is that?

It is the IDE that the chipkit guys developed for their 32 bit pic32 "duino" boards that also supports
the AVR based "duino" boards.
It was based on the 0022/0023 Arduino IDE code
and was intended to be a base for supporting "multiple processors" (rather than just the AVR)
by allowing easy integration of other processors.
Hence the name "mpide"

I was surprised to see the convergence in that if I remember correctly there were some disputes over how to
handle adding in support for non AVR based processors and the "openness" of the Arduino code and development
process in general which eventually led to the fracture.

Well, if Arduino themselves are having any problems at all getting supply at this stage, I'd say the clone makers will be completely out of the picture for the time being.

Well, "SOLD OUT" how many DUE did Arduino sell in maybe 30 hours? What a meltdown...

Adafruit has the Due in stock:

Just ordered mine, looks like they only have 5 left now.

Mouser shows that they now have 1020 Due boards on order. Must have decided to get a jump on things after thier original order of 25 went quickly @ roughly $40 ea.

Looks like they have 295 of the chips by themselves on order. I saw Arrow Electronics has 70 chips in stock @ $9.28 ea. This is assuming I'm correct that the part number is ATSAM3X8EA-AU

Most places are showing about a 10-12 week lead time on chip only orders. I'm sure Atmel will see a rise in demand very shortly.

I went to Atmel's "Technology on Tour" training today, which was essentially an introduction to Atmel Studio and the Atmel Software Framework (pay $99, get a JTAG ICE3 and a xmega a3bu Xplained board.  good deal.)  (also, the training was pretty good.)

AS/ASF has a "quick start" mode where you can set up a project based on a bunch of pre-defined "boards" (like the xplained boards.

One of the pre-defined boards is the Arduino Due...

Well it's nice to know the support of the two organizations is a two-way street.

I'm a little disappointed in Mouser Electronics. They jumped the price of their Due boards from $36 to $48. Not that $48 is too high I was just really looking forward to the same great deal I got on my first board........or maybe I just was able to take advantage of a mistake before they caught it. ;)

MOUSER_EMBEDDED

It was a mistake, sorry.  Great news though, the first 100 Dues shipped out from our warehouse today so if you were one of the lucky designers who got it on order that first 1-3 days, it should be on its way!  Another 100 - 150 should ship in the first week of December (or sooner if we can help it).  Enjoy and let us know how you like them!
