Hello Guys,

 

I make on my own small PCB with ATSAMC21E18A to evaluating CAN and LIN interface. I wanted to flashing and debuging it using EDBG built in my SAMV71-Xplained-Ultra. I conneted all together, removed supply for V71 and... Surprise...

 

When I connect board to USB in AS, in Device Programming dialog I see only ATSAMV71Q21B... Is this joke? or Atmel really not allowing using EDBG to programing other micro? If answer is yes... Looking on eval price and debuger price, Atmel falls out very bad on against to competitions...

 

Regards,

Rafal

Did the documentation for your SAMV71-Xplained-Ultra give any indication anywhere that it could be used for programming an external microcontroller?

Go on - the SAM C21 Xplained Pro is under $50 ...

 

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

And then when I would like to use SAMD, SAMA next eval and next eval? Please...

 

Looking on V71 Xplained price  EDBG should works for all SAM family. I really like Atmel micro and IDE but this is stupid.

 

I already found answer to my question and yes in this case Atmel (Microchip) is not serious nad explanation why it looks like is for me and I'm 100% sure that not only for me is childlike.

 

"The Atmel EDBG is embedded on all Xplained Pro evaluation kits. All functionality of the Atmel EDBG is
not necessarily available on all kits - the EDBG is factory configured depending on the specific kit
capabilities. The configuration is read by Atmel Studio to present the correct capabilities and simplify the
user interface. Supported extension boards connected to the kit will be detected by the EDBG and their
features are reported to Atmel Studio."

 

Plesae close my topic.

You can override this by going to Tool->Options->Tools and set 'hide unsupported devices' to false... No need to vent that much... smiley

Hi relektronik, how did you remove the power supply for the V71?
