Curiously, Atmel seem to have changed both their URI minting scheme and the PDF formatting sometime between 19'th and 29'th. (As well as their logo.) Thus, the document formely known as, say: http://www.atmel.com/Images/doc8159.pdf is now instead: http://www.atmel.com/Images/Atmel-8159-8-bit-AVR-microcontroller-ATmega8A_datasheet.pdf (which seems almost hopeless for me to re...

We are regularly programming an Atmeg128l board with the Atmel JTAGICE + AVRStudio with no problems, but in production it would be useful to use a MacGraigor Wiggler to program the Atmel, as we already have one in our test/programming jig. MacGraigor don't support the Atmel AVR devices, but I reckon there should be a software solution to this, does anyone know what it might look like? TIA. ...

Hi, I'm a student working on an embedded systems undergraduate design project. In our project, we want to use an Atmel chip with some other Zigbee module that will allow us to transfer information using Zigbee wireless communication. We have found several choices, such as Maxstream's XBee Zigbee module, but we would prefer to use one that is from Atmel or is compatible with Atmel. We...

I have an old RFID reader that is based on U2270B chip from Atmel (previously from TEMIC). It seems any kind of info about this IC are disappeared on Atmel web site. There are only documents and info about RFID transponders, but not the readers. Is Atmel producing this IC yet? Is there a new modern device to use for RFID readers?

Hello, I've done some PIC development before, with the PIC16F690, PIC18F4321, etc. and I'm thinking about trying out the Atmel processors since I've heard they have a flat memory space (no banks), a software stack, and other things I am interested in. What would be a good entry level atmel microprocessor to experiment with (maybe having features like USART, SPI, USB, external data/program ...

In my new arm7 design I was biased toward the atmel AT91 seriesbecause I like the AVR chips so much, but after some research and pointers by nice foks such as rickman and Leon, I decided to look toward other manufacturer's offerings. One thing I discovered is that the flash in the atmel chips (which have it) is slow! Thus using a ball grid type package such as the AT91FR40162 with 2Meg of fla...

A posting to the Atmel FAQ dated 12/05/05 says that "The errata (if any) will be included IN all newly revised datasheets." I know there are some significant errata on the AT91SAM7S family as I have been discussing it with the vendor. But they no longer make an errata sheet available and the data sheet updated in Feburary this year has no errata information in it. So what's up Atmel? Tr...

Hi, In the past I did some work with the Atmel FPSLIC. Eventually the project was changed and the FPSLIC was dropped. I have lots of working code still around from that project. It takes advantage of the tight FPGA + MCU symbiosis, so it's difficult to reuse on other platforms. I wonder if there are any Atmel FPSLIC users out there? I could polish up some of the code and publish it...

Hi Gurus, I am switching from AVR to ARM. Currently, I use an ATmega162 which is running out of code space (16kB) and performance. But I find it difficult to choose between Atmel's ARM (looking at the SAM7S series) and thePhilips LPC2104/5/6 series. I don't need many peripherals (yet). My current design uses an FTDI chip for USB, I could save that by using Atmel (Philips has no USB), but o...

Hi, On our project, we are considering an ARM with a USB interface (Atmel AT91SAM7S256). From looking at the datasheet, it appears that we need an 18.432 MHz crystal for the USB to operate at full speed. Is this correct? The datasheet seems to be a bit ambiguous in this regard. I looked at the schematic for Atmel's AT91SAM7S-EK evaluation board and noticed that they are using an 18.432 ...

Does anyone know of any third party development tools for the Atmel AVR32 family besides IAR? We just got in some EVK1100 development boards bundled with Atmel's AVR32 Studio and a crippled version of IAR Embedded Workbench. The Atmel suite seems pretty hideous and non- intuitive, and the IAR single seat license is 4000 bucks! Is there anything else out there? Thanks, Bob
