Hi,
Is there anyone who knows where can I buy XIlinx PowerPC & MicroBlaze
Development Kit in european union ?? (DO-ML403-EDK-ISE,
http://www.xilinx.com/xlnx/xebiz/designResources/ip_product_details.jsp?sGlobalNavPick=PRODUCTS&sSecondaryNavPick=Intellectual+Property&category=&iLanguageID=1&key=DO-ML403-EDK-ISE

I tried via XIlinx on-line store but since their products are not RoHS
compliant it's not possible to ship it to EU.

Thanks,
Marcin

Avnet/Memec sell in EU. Zara

True, but the RoHS issue is a serious one. Many developement boards simply are not yet RoHS redy and those are not available by Avnet/Memec (or any other distribution) in the EU because it's simply not legal for them to sell non complying boards. To the OP, how about ordering the board from Xilinx online store and have it shipped to a non EU location? HTH Markus

You are correct that the ML403 is not RoHS compliant, but we pre-stocked inventory on this board with our distributor Avnet/Silca prior to the July 1st cutoff date for sale in the EU. If you contact your local Avnet/Silica office they will sell you this board. Ed McGettigan -- Xilinx Inc.
Thanks for all!!
Finally I found local distributor who has 3 boards I'm interested in to
sell.
