Greetings, fellow Ara fans and developers. I recently got this in my inbox, and I figured you may be interested.
Dear Ara Module Developer:

We are now accepting requests for dev boards that we demo'd at the developer conference back in April. This is FPGA hardware that corresponds to the v0.11 release of the MDK. It is designed to help with prototyping and development of modules for the Ara platform, including modules for the current (first) prize challenge that we formally announced at Google I/O.

You may request the developer hardware at The first round of applications will be due this Thursday, July 17 2014, 11:59pm Pacific Time. The second round of applications will be due on August 17, 2014.

We also anticipate making a new set of dev hardware based on the v0.20 MDK platform (which use ASICs instead of FPGAs for UniPro network processing and free up significant space for developer functionality in the modules) after the second developers conference in November 2014.
