Recommended Webshop in the US for STK500

Started by johannes m.r. April 19, 2004
Hello,

Since the Atmel STK500 is much cheaper in the US than in Europe (79USD
in the US, around 120EUR in Europa are the prices I found) I'd need a
recommendation for a good webshop in the US. Of course it should be
cheap ;), reliable. Shipping and handling shouldn't be too expensive
(to the US, not to Europe; I'd ex-/import it myself).
Thank you very much for any hints and tips!

Regards,
johannes

Hi Johannes, Looks the Chameleon POD on www.amontec.com . Yes, it is a little bit expensive (EUR159.-), but the Chameleon POD can works as - a STK500 for AVR - a Raven JTAG for all ARM, MIPS, XSCALE ... - a Wiggler JTAG for all ARM, MIPS and many more - a DownloadISP for all Lattice FPGA, CPLD - a ParallelCableIII for all Xilinx FPGA - a ByteBlaster for all Altera FPGA, CPLD - a true I2C Master controller - a true SPI Master controller The Chameleon POD is based on programmable logic. So it can emmulate all actual parallel port dongles. It is a Generic Dongle Solution !

Have you tried Digikey's German web site? Only 63 Euros: http://de.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Criteria?Ref=183866&Site=DE&Cat=32113609 Also available in the U.K.: http://uk.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Criteria?Ref=184768&Site=UK&Cat=32113609 -- Joe Legris

Maybe try www.dontronics.com. All the US-based places I can think of will charge you a LOT for shipping. Or I can buy one for you and mail it via USPS :)

Is the 120 Euro with or without VAT.? If you ship something from the U.S, then the VAT may be added by your local customs officer... In sweden, the VAT is 25 %. At www.elfa.se, the ATSTK500 is 97 Euro. -- Best Regards, Ulf Samuelsson ulf@a-t-m-e-l.com This is a personal view which may or may not be share by my Employer Atmel Nordic AB

On the other hand, we are looking for distributors in Europe, rather than shipping directly from the U.S. The custom forms and trips to the post office are quite time consumming. ...

Not sure about the price cut-off, but we have been shipping to Europe duty-free so far. (~50 USD). PCB are not heavily with tariff yet. Perhaps, the custom offices don't want to bother with low cost items.

Wow, thanks. I didn't know a German Digikey website existed. 18 Euros shipping, 13 Euros handling charge (for orders under 100&#2013266048;) - still cheaper than the other sources I knew. Thank you very much, and thanks also to the other people who replied! Regards, johannes
