The coupon is still working, but free shipping on TI eStore seems to be a thing of the past, as the total price adds $7 for shipping and handling to the US, and it goes up to $19 to countries in Asia.

Thanks to Nanik for the tip.

Although I’ll miss TI’s free shipping, their charges are still reasonable considering that in my experience (US-based) they’ve always shipped FedEx 2-day, whether the shipping was free or not.

I’d still prefer cheaper but slower shipping, but $7 for shipping from almost any other place (Mouser, Digikey, etc) just gets ground.

If this actually included something it would have been interesting but as it is … it’s a bit meh …. I mean wifi, bluetooth or something like that would have been really nice.

I am porting a JTAG pinout detector over one TI board I have (Tiva C, cortex M4), and the advantage is that it has 40 IO pins in 3.3V (while the original target was arduino, only 14 pins available in 5V, requiring adding many (at least 2×8) 3.3v-5v bidirectional shifters).

The only problem of those TI boards is the price, I am waiting for one of those chinese STM32 clones at 3USD, those are not cortex M4, but they should be powerful enough for that use case.
