We're very happy to announce that the ETHERNAT is finally finished!!! The
100Mbit ethernet part is working fine and though we have no finished driver
for the USB part yet, the enumeration test by Jan Thomas shows that it will
work fine once the USB stack has been written (also by Jan). For more
technical details read the (soon available) news on our homepage:
Now we need to know exactly how many boards we're going to produce, because
it affects the price we need to ask of you. We have done some more detailed
calculations on the final price. Have a look at this:
200 orders => 120 EURO/board
150 orders => 125 EURO/board
100 orders => 138 EURO/board
Shipping costs will be added to this. The prices are including Swedish VAT
and apply for all EU customers except companies that are VAT
registrated in their respective countries.
For all customers outside the EU instead the following prices apply (VAT for
your country will probably be added by your customs):
200 orders => 96 EURO/board
150 orders => 100 EURO/board
100 orders => 111 EURO/board
HINT: To avoid the 25% Swedish VAT within the EU, let a VAT registrated
company buy all the boards for your country from us and distribute them
within your country. Contact us first if you run a company and want to do
Swedish customers may pay us in SEK instead of EURO. More info on that
Now please send us an email (to "hencox at hotmail dot com" or "henrik at
gildaelectronics dot se" or "torbjorn at gildaelectronics dot se") and state
exactly how many boards you want. Please don't write anything else, this is
not yet your order! And we want this email even from our closer friends in
the atari community, because we can't be sure that you want a board just
because we know you...
We know that we've already asked for your interest in this product several
months ago, but we need to get a fresh picture now.
Because Rodolphe Czuba has experienced that 10-20% of all who state that
they will buy a board never goes through with it, please be honest when you
write this email.
You have two weeks to register your interest (until August 23rd 2005). After
that we'll post information on how to prepay us for the boards.
Henrik and Torbjörn
