Hello all,

 

I just started working with AtmelStudio 7. I have a board ( with the link below) that uses  SAMD51  microchip. I do not know where to start? Is this the correct topic so I can start asking my question?!

Thanks!

Thanks for directing my question to correct forum.

 

To make my question more clear, I want to attach a picture of the tab that asks which project to choose.

 

Thanks!

What do you want to do?
.
Also, the user guide has a getting started section that should help: https://www.microchip.com/webdoc/GUID-ECD8A826-B1DA-44FC-BE0B-5A53418A47BD/GUID-00257F02-E33C-40C3-B324-83DBCC05EC30.html

Thanks.

I want to do a very simple program that can run the LEDs first.

I am at the stage where I need to set up AtmelStudio 7 a=up and running.

My problem is that I have an Adadfruit itsibitsy M4 board and the AtmelStudio does NOT recognize this board (unlike Xplained boards).

 

For your reference the webpage of the board I have in hand is below, please help so I do not have to buy another board!

Is your intention not to use circuit python? You will need a proper debugger/programmer cable if you don't already have one. The Xplained boards have the USB debugger/programmer circuitry built onto the same board as the SAMD51 chip. The adafruit boards do NOT. In your case, "advanced development" means you would not be programming in circuit python via the usb memory interface. I would start with learning how to clear the bootloader which runs circuit python from the memory chip. This way, you can program(using a debugger/programmer cable) in C, if this is what you would like to do. I grabbed this snapshot from the adafruit grand central board web page:  https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-grand-central/pinouts
