Is that intended for in circuit flashing of a onboard Flash ROM?

I went to replenish my stock of CPLDs just to find out Digikey hasn't got any left, somebody cleaned them out. Oh and they jacked up the price as well. F*ck.

Anybody knows if those from UTSource are any good?

I know mate I bought 20 last week for the TF328 and price was up the barstewards
but these are available
https://www.digikey.co.uk/product-de...982-ND/1957202

hard to keep prices so low with the chancers putting up the component prices when they see them moving

Thanks a lot!
I was buying the C variant so far, I assume the I variant also works?

But yeah, holy crap it's $8.20 per chip now. They were less than $5 originally.
EDIT: also none of the XC9536XL's left, in either C or I variety.

Yes I Or C no problem ,
Actually the C (commercial) is the cheaper chip the I( industrial )is military grade so will be more expensive .

Digikey has them. 1.52 for the ‘36 and 3.98 for the ‘72. More than 200 of each in stock.

If you guys are struggling for parts I could reconcile the TF328 to a single CPLD.

I don't think that's necessary at this point, I think most people have already got one.

I am not selling many on Amibay at all, there might be some people left on ebay but I think the demand is pretty low at this point.

In total I sold about 150 TF328s, now that was some serious building time.

Should be ok Steve as it states on the Digikey item page that lead time is sometime this month so hopefully they will have some in.

Its strange that RS do not ship to Canada because then his XC9536XL-10VQG44C hiccup would be solved.

I know what you mean Alen , its been non stop building here , so still a good few in Europe who want them, its been hard to keep up but I we have managed mate,
I blame Steve for making an awesome open source project for the CD32 owners who cant get them quick enough lol

Also considering digikey's greed in constantly increasing prices I think I should give UTSource a chance. The RAM I buy from them is mostly ok, even though there is a defective chip here and there.

Yep give em a go Alen I have had mostly good luck with their parts,and I just checked they have quite a few 44pin cpld`s mate

same here if I buy 100 Aliance ram then I have on average 3 bad ones but its easy to debug the TF328 so its no hardship

well I have some ideas for taking the TF328 to the next level.

Exporting CPLDS is subject to export restrictions so I can understand this.

Bit of an update. No time to stream but I got flashrom working on the TF534.



I also noticed a potential TF530 bug that I may stream about later

good news is that the spi code is rock solid. everything else (SD cards) is a driver issue.

Hello Stephen,
is it hard- or software related?
