Is it for a specific camera (raspberrypi camera or other) or generic

Hello,

Are there plans to make it available for purchase?

I have backorder on digikey for 1.0 version, but seems it is not going to happen...

Yes, given the total pin count with those four Samtec connectors, it's going to need a few layers! However, I understand that the assembled board will be available from DigiKey.

Hi, Do you know when the boards will be available? Want to use my Z7020 based board in a hardware project very soon...

Cheers,

Nick

1 board is still available on digikey out of 20 boards in this batch.

My backordered order for 1.0 was shipped from this batch, so hopefully it will be 2.0 version.

According to Andreas Olofsson twit another batch will be available in a month:

Hi, sevikkk.

I've just got my 4@Porcupine-2 boards, which have been on back-order from Digi-Key for months, so they are finally shipping!

Anyone interested in using the Porcupine N/S connectors to link Epiphany chips?

[Fred told me that Adapteva have tried it, but I'm not sure what cables they used]

Bye,

Tony.
