Hardware, Embedded Systems Big news from the Raspberry Pi front today - they have a manufacturing date. "The boards will be finished on February 20. Eben and I may be going to China to make sure that the boards can be brought up properly for that date if necessary. We'll be airfreighting them to the UK immediately, so you should be able to buy them before the end of the month."

True, it is butchered, but to even get this much out of Broadcom is nothing short of a miracle -- given we're talking about the company that driver developers joke "doesn't want you to actually use their hardware".

Hell, you can be building cards using their chips under contract and not get that much information out of them...

Ah for the good old days where EVERYTHING had complete implementation docs... You know, like a TRS-80 technical reference where you get the entire computers circuit diagrams AND copies of the major chips tech specs, right down to timing charts?
