Hi, Im an undergrad working on installing Linux on a custom development board based on the AT91RM9200 (for my senior project). Since this is the first time im doing this, i decided to go for the "linux-2.4.27-vrs1-ATMEL" kernle available from the Atmel site. Incedentally, this kernel is built for the AT91RM9200-EK. But i was befuddled when it came to "make menuconfig"..what are the opti...

Cheers, Has anybody tried to port ATMel's own AVROSP ("AVR Open-source Programmer", see: http://www.atmel.com/dyn/general/tech_doc.asp?doc_id=9852 ) for Linux? It seems otherwise quite generic code, except that the module SerialPort.cpp is wholly Windows-specific, so I need just to create the corresponding interface using standard Posix-interface to RS232-port. Other possibility would...

Not that anyone can do anything but guess what might happen, but if Microchip buys Atmel's MPU business, what is the prognosis for the PIC32. I bought some PIC32 tools and invested time learning the family, and now it may go away or new variant design activity may stop. This is because Atmel has a popular ARM based family of MPUs and the MIPS based PIC32 has only been out a year. Freescale...

Hi folks I did originally posted to C.A.F. so sorry for copy to .embedded I only do repost here as realized later that well, the FPGA is made to look like working wrong by an Atmel AVR MCU. And the "problem" is small piece of code that executes on ATmega8. In the matter of fact its only 1 wrong bit in the Atmel code, by changing one bit in the Atmel code the FPGA code would work as it is s...

We have just released a new board MYD-JA5D4X based on atmel sama5d44. It is said that Compared to the previous Cortex-A5 SoC from Atmel, the SAMA5D3, the SAMA5D4 brings a L2 cache, NEON, a slightly different clock tree, a hardware video decoder, and Trustzone support. The sama5d44 can support 720p hardware video decoder, that's true, the video display seems much better. http://ww

I am looking at developing an industrial product which will have BT. Obviously there are numerous ways to do it, with any microcontroller and one of the BT modules. My preference is towards the Atmel ATmega128 because we have some other projects, currently using a Hitachi H8/323, which will eventually be migrated to that. Atmel, along with Microchip, seems to be the only company committe...
