Will the BX-24 work with a mac? I am running OSX and will get a serial adapter. Also I can't seem to find very man programming sites for it. Will it work with VB and does it have an AVR chip in it and can I use the avr-gcc compiler? Thanks in advance.

Can AVR Studio be used with the BasicX 35/24? AVR Studio 4: http://www.atmel.com/dyn/pr oducts/tools_card.asp?tool_id=2725 It supports the Atmel chips used by BasicX but I was not sure if they were modified so that AVR Studio could not be used. thanks, Fly

Hi Just a thought, would it be possible to upload the binary file loaded on the BasicX ATMEL uC flash memory and use it with Proteus ( http://www.labcenter.co.uk/ ) AVR Simulator? Proteus says that their program can simulate any native binary file for the AVR. Then using the BasicX code generate

I'm sure this has been asked before but as a relative newbie I would be interested in the answer.What is the future of BasicX? Atmel are no longer actively manufacturing or support the AT90S8535 chip. NetMedia have not produced any new versions based on later AVR chips. For

The BasicX platform is great for beginners because there is a low initial investment in both hardware and software. The platform is also good for more advanced folks because it provides a very good prototyping and even production platform. However I like to dig deeper into things and find out how they work. Hence my set of articles explaining the inter

Here is an update on a question I posted a few days ago about alternatives to the builtin PWM generators in BasicX. I wanted IR remote capability via InputCapture and this also uses the same Timer1 required for PWM generation. My solution for now (until I get more experience in AVR programming) is to use some analog circuits to generate the PWM and the


RISC big or small. Harvard Architecture or pseudo-Von Neuman?

I look at the documentation for the BX-01 and then I go to Amtel's site for more hardward information and I just seem to get a bit confused. First of all, Amtel does define the BasicX microprocessors as reduced instruction set [RISC]. The whole idea was to eliminate the complexity of Assembly language encoding. But Amtel's AVR RISC has 100

> ... Is there any way to configure the BX35 so the ULN2803A outputs do not sink > on powerup? I think this is caused by a characteristic of AVRs, on which the BX35 is built. AVR I/O pins float (high-impedance) during a processor reset, as occurs at powerup. My guess is that the 2803 outputs might go low, perhaps weakly, while the inputs float high. Had I designed the LCDX I might ha

FYI, according to engineers at an ATMEL seminar Tuesday, the quoted write cycle endurances of Flash memory in the current AVR parts (in particular, the ATMega169 was being discussed but the BX-24p's ATMega8535 is included) of 10,000 cycles, and 100,000 cycles for EEPROM, are very conservative. Typical endurance for Flash is 100,000 cycles and even one mill
