PCB as a gift

A project log for XORYA - extremely low cost game console on PIC32

XORYA game console is just one chip PIC32MX170F256B (32-bit MIPS core, 256K flash, 64K data mem) in DIP28 package and a few other components

I forgot to mention that some time ago I received a few PCBs of Xorya prototype with composite connectors as a gift from @arnaud.durand

Thank you, Arnaud! :)

P.S. I can give away few pre-built Xoryas with hotglued batteries and pre-installed "fast" Mandelbrot Set demo on Superconference in Pasadena, if anybody is interested :)

I won't be in Pasadena, and I'm in PAL/SECAM-land, but this would be welcome :-P

Unfortunately I can't send Xorya abroad because PIC32 is under export regulations :(

I know you're not kidding... BUT WTF ?

Frequency is too high - anything capable to run with >20 MHz (or 25?) requires export license...

Now you are kidding. That must have been the export rules 40 years ago...

  Are you sure? yes | no

But they are still enforced ;)
Recently I started to pay attention to export codes in DigiKey papers :)

I still have a few - if you are on Superconference in Pasadena and want to have a demo-board of Xorya for free - ping me :)
