I tried to find out where one can get a Juno board, but didn't find out.
So where do people get them and what kind of prices do they have?
My reply may be too late to help, but FWIW. ARM development platforms are always going to be relatively expensive, they are made in small numbers. Their primary purpose is to provide early access to new hardware implementations, before a large number of 3rd party development boards are available. (e.g. boards like the HiKey 96 boards are now around).
That said I'm not sure where $20,000 comes from (maybe some of our larger FPGA tiles for hardware prototyping, which are very expensive). Juno is going to be a lot less than that. I'm not in the business of providing quotes via CC though. Fortunately there's a handy "get a quote" button here
If you've got questions on what the platform is (or isn't) and how the product names/parts relate to each other, we can help with those here on CC.
I think my friend was out for a 100$ or less board.
It would have been very embarrassing to ask for a quote...
If he can find another $20 - maybe do some busking?
I think he might get one of the 96boards' products. The $100 was rather a price class than an absolute limit.
He is not, however ready to put hundreds into it, because he is basically using the board for testing that his code (for FreeBSD) also works on 64-bit ARM.
Well, the Juno board has never been intended to be a mass product!
It was produced in a small series as the very first ARM 64-bit development platform available.
The 96boards board has been really well received. I hope it delivers when you get your hands on it. I know many ARM employees are going to buy one... or more!
