Hi,

I am interested in bitcloud learning after reading AVR-2050.

I want to ask few questions.

Is Atmel Stduio 6 (799 mb size) support the bitcloud sdk?

I have two zigduino and one sparkfun board with usbasp programmer is it enough? mean compatible to Bitcloud, AS 6 and for learning purpose.

Thanks.

Ok, i got the answer of stable and compatible IDE. But still confused about the board and programmer.

a little hint required.

Thanks

check for the MCU type and pin mapping of zigduino and sparkfun modules.

It might be required to rebuild HAL library.

Zigduino uses an ATmega128RFA1

You need to download Atmel Studio 6 and also download the BitCloud 1.14 framework (for MegaRF), both from atmel.com.

Install AS6 on your system then unzip the bitcloud framework archive somewhere where you can use it from (like where you keep your projects or documents).

Check with logos-electro.com to see if they have instructions for using BitCloud. They link to the BitCloud download page from their site so they might have something.

If not, you will need to adapt the BitCloud package to work with their board as you would if you developed the board yourself; by creating the appropriate makefiles and BSP components. You can use the RCB and STK600 BSPs as examples.

Someone has probably done or is doing this already so make sure you Google around first.

Yep, thanks. Its took my time to figure out "AVR2059 BitCloud Porting Guide.pdf".

Only reason for using those boards is the process of import, "Legal Issue", and "duty cost = thrice the actual price".

I just want to know is it possible or not? :(

Thanks

Software wise both AS6 and AS5 are supported. I don't know if usbasp supports programming of mega128rfa1, it probably should.

NOTE: I no longer actively read this forum. Please ask your question on www.eevblog.com/forum if you want my answer.

Now i am confident to learn bitcloud, Thanks :).
