I'm trying to purchase an EVAL-7842-7511P. ADI referred me to DigiKey. They are telling me I have to be an HDMI adopter to purchase the EVAL system. The HDMI Adopter license is $5k / $10k. That seems crazy to have to become an adopter to purchase an EVAL system. Is this right? We're not sure if we will use HDMI in the final product, so we'd rather not waste $5k on a license we might not need.
Alternatively, will the EVAL-7802 provide a similar non-HDMI evaluation system? It looks like the video output and i2c interface is the same as the ADV7842.
