Dear Mr.Stanislaus Eichstaedt-san



Thank you for your comments.

Currently you can buy the board at kiban-honpo web shop. Sorry the web site is all Japanese.

But they can ship the board to outside of Japan.

If you have a question, please tweet to their twitter. (or me

I love StarBoard Orange. It's amazing board I think so too.

I'd like to support you to get the board if you need. :)

Konichi wa - Mr. Nakamura - san

Hi there in Japan. Thank you very much for the quick reply. :-) The mbed community is really fantastic. Fans all over the world. Great. I love this.

Postal charges are - maybe - very high from Japan to Germany. The German customs agency and their public officers are another problem. They want an VAT amount (19% in Europe) if ordered goods cost more than 20 EUR. Am I right that the board costs 2980 Yen -  this is nearly 26 EUR as complete kit (if my calculation is right :-))?

If you could support me to get this amazing board this would be really great.

The kit is fine. Soldering is no problem for me.

With VAT it's nearly about 30 EUR - that's absolutely okay. Do you know the shipping costs?

Thanks a lot for supporting me and and for your help.

With best regards from Germany

I want to complete my article ( - so a network connector would be fine, like offered by the board.

Guten Morgen Mr.Stanislaus-san


The kit of StarBoard Orange is JPY 2,980-. You are right. :)

I wrote the document : StarBoard Orange : "Soldering step by step"


I don't know the shipping costs now.

But I'll ask to them.

Wait a moment please.


Oh! You are the guy who developed mbed .NET RPC Library! Amazing!

Thank you for your great job!



Guten Morgen - Mr. Nakamura-san :-)


Thanks for asking them because of shipping costs. Paying with Credit Card is no problem for me.

I saw your video with the small IR car. My little son want's this too. :-) He is absolutely fascinated, really. Great work.

Porting from Java to .NET was easy. Daniel did a great work with his Java library. It worked at once as I rewrote it. Only some minor changes. Now I'm testing it and want to write the network stuff. What I have tested till now seemed to work. Hopefully the rest, too. :-)

Best regards

Hello All,

you're great! I have my LPC1768 since 5 days. But I`m already love the mbed project.

The side sounds realy good. Thanks for the advice.

That´s not be the first time, I see an interesting thing in a Japanese shop.

Then I`ll register me at

Hi Tomo and all,

Another discussion of "world wide availability" is started on .

I introduced this thread so please follow-up when you have further inquiries.


I believe it will be nice to announce when you can start the shipment from Kibanhonpo (of cource, I mean, when you know it). Many people are waiting that news in the world ;)

Can someone please help me get one of these in the US.

The forwarding service would be great if the website was in English so I could make the purchase.

Is anyone else in the US interested in these.  If so, maybe we can get several at once.

i'd probably buy one of these, too if they were sold in the US...maybe SparkFun could carry them? ship them out a few kits?

I live in Silicon Vally, CA.  I bought 2 of these as kits a couple of weeks ago.  They are well worth having over the normal ad-hoc proto-breadboard.  It took some back and forth conversation over a few days, but we got everything in sync.  If you have a PayPal account, it will work in the USA.  Toshio Masuda from was very helpful.  The kits came in a couple of days (I think it was actually 2 days) once the money transferred.  It took less than an hour to build each one.  The kit can be found at  fully assembled (without the mbed) at
