AT91SAM7X256 Eagle library and/or project?

Started by glennskidoo July 15, 2006
Does anyone have an Eagle library part or project using the AT91SAM7X256?

Besides the development board from Atmel and the upcoming board from
Olimex, are there any other boards that anyone knows of that uses this
chip?

Thanks.

Hello! I found this
ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/eagle/userfiles/libraries/atmel_prototype_header.lbr
It only has the S32 and S64 versions, but it's a start in making a
library. Have you checked the Files section in the group?

The Make Controller Kit uses the AT91SAM7X256 ARM7 Microcontroller. I
have some details of the board at my site.

http://www.uchobby.com/Information/MakeControllerKit/Main.htm

This "Kit" includes a breakout board with Ethernet, USB and terminal
strips for I/0. The microcontroller is on a separate board that plugs
in. The idea is to make it easy for people to do projects with the
microcontroller because all the surface mount parts are on the processor
board. The package cost $150 and will be shipping August 1st.

They are also including example software that runs freeRTOS and a TCIP
stack. I am anxiously awaiting mine.

There is an AT91SAM7X256 Board from Priio.

The ARM7X Development Board is designed for prototyping, laboratory, and
OEM use. The board hosts an Atmel AT91SAM7X256 processor along with
RS232, RS485, USB, CAN, and 10/100 Ethernet ports. It also has an on
board Real-Time-Clock, an Optrex compatible LCD connector, JTAG, and
an MMC/SD socket.

Looks complete. There is also a *.pdf manual for it. $199. Not a bad
deal. Anyone bought one yet? I am thinking about buying one myself.

David:
I am also very interested in the MAKE Controller Kit.
For me, what is missing:
Real Time Clock (battery backup)
SD Card slot.

Please let us know when you first get your kit, as I don't like to
pre-order.
(Fixed Ship Date? August 1st? Trust us, its going to ship as planned? )
Anyone else, let the group know when you receive it and your experiences
with it.

$150 is a great price for the board.

MAKE CONTROLLER KIT - Specifications
Based on the AT91SAM7X256: 32-bit ARM7 core, 256K Flash, 64K SRAM, up to
55MHz/48 MIPS.
Two-board layout - general Controller Board plugs into specific Application
Board.
Controller Board: brings SAM7X signals out to standard 0.1" sockets, adds
32K EEPROM, Ethernet PHY, CAN transceiver.
Application Board: provides application-specific components. High-current
output, buffered inputs, circuit protection.

Ethernet, full-speed USB, RS232, CAN, and JTAG debug connections.
8 10-bit Analog inputs with op amp buffers.
8 Digital outputs through half-H drivers (1A per coil) and flyback diodes -
drive solenoids/valves, DC motors, and steppers.
4 Standard servo motor connectors.
4 Status LEDs.
8-position DIP switch

The board that seems to fit my needs is the PRIIO, but it is $200.

Thanks David for setting this Yahoo group up. You also have a great website.
Jeff,

I did not start this Yahoo group. I'm not sure how you came to that
conclusion either...

Thank you for the positive comments about my web site. I do plan to post
my first impressions on the Make Controller Kit as soon as I get it and
some time to play.
