  1. Charudatt says:

    So when is the Flyport Ethernet rolling out.

  2. Claudio says:

    Flyport Ethernet is ready for shipment, but the IDE 2.2 is still under testing (it’s not compatible with IDE 2.1) – so we are gonna make it available together with the new IDE 2.2
    It’s gonna be around middle February I think

  3. Charudatt says:

    that some good news, and shall anxiously wait for its release. Will it be also available via Microchip Direct ?


  4. Ionela says:

    yes, but in the meanwhile you can buy it from our store 😉

  5. Charudatt says:

    The shipping / Duty Taxes , (cost) would kill, Microchip Direct is the best in both these areas.

    Anyway, what would be the indicative price of these modules ? or would it be early to comment !
