Well, if you're willing to sell your soul to the devil, I believe they're back in-stock at Newark.

Be forewarned: They will charge you a low-order handling fee on orders less than $25 (my notes say: "BASTARDS!!!"). You should try and order it in a batch with something else. Maybe pick up some flowers for your mom, or something. never call, and she loves you.

I sampled mine from one of Cirus's distributors. After asking for a sample from Cirus, its email said no dice. So I decided to call up the closest distributor to me, and tell the truth, Rutger's student, mp3 project. They had a someone in charge of all Rutgers requests/sales. Took three tries though. First to figure out who to talk to, second to forget the name in call one, and be told that they don't offer samples to students, and third to talk to someone who just put the sample order thru. Seems like noone knew anything bout the Rutgers account.

Anyway, call up a local distributor. See if they can help you. Helps if there is an engineering school near by.

not sure what to tell you, you can order from newark and they'll ship it to you in a month, or you can try looking elsewhere. when i designed minty (like, a year and a half ago) the cs4340 was the best choice...

ugh, i really shouldnt be doing parts specification at 3am...newark does have the CS4340A-KS in stock

Its not really the point of the whole thing.

Minty is an open source hardware project, partially to gauge whether it is possible to design and maintain such projects and whether people are interested in working on open source hardware. I do not expect people to try building it.

I think its so much cooler to say...yes I built this myself.

R18 is right, i actually put it on upside down!
all of the 16/20/22pF capacitors can be placed with 20pF and work just fine.

also, i now remember that i had problems with some crystals. use the one in the new BOM. it should work. best of luck!
