Has anyone used the Sandisk SDDK-05 development kit on a PIC for SD card
interface? How'd it go? What's it cost? Other comments?

THANKS!

Harold

Hmmm....$5000 price break at 101....tempting.

I like how they get you with that extra half cent on the 11+ quantity!

Stone the crows!  For that price I'd expect them to do the development for you!  :-#

What can they possibly supply that would justify a price like that?  Or are they just going through the
motions with no intention of making any sales (they don't even keep stock - if you plunked down over $2million
for a hundred of them, I wonder how long they'd take to get them produced?).

Cheers,

You get a free pen! With an order like that you would probably even get to kiss the managers wife on the lips.... haha; CRAZY!

It looks like a full source code library and development kit that
covers several operating systems.  If well done and nicely portable,
the price is not out-of-line with similar packages implementing some
moderately obscure comm protocol.  Depending on what the associated
licenses allow you to do, of course.  Having "quantity pricing" on
such a product is pretty unusual, though; usually it's a "one license
per site" sort of thing.

It can be easily worth the money, too, if the protocol is proprietary
and complex.  cisco bought a LAT implementation for about that price,
way back when, and it was money well spent...

Note also that the SD host does not *only* support memory cards.  This
likely covers the whole range of memory and SDIO cards, and it's
likely that the kit contains a lot more than just code (ie, perhaps a
whole hardware system to verify correct host behavior).  Furthermore,
it probably covers the whole encryption system the "Secure Digital"
format is supposed to have.

It would be similar to purchasing a whole USB host development kit for
those who were planning on implementing he USB protocol stack not just
in software, but in silicon.  A fab would not blink at such a price,
just as many professional engineers don't blink at $5k for their
schematic package, or $2k for a compiler.

I haven't looked a the kit, and perhaps I'm completely wrong, but when
it's this much it's usually either not meant to be sold, or contains a
lot more knowledge and hardware than one initially expects.

Still, I'd rather spend that money elsewhere.
