Hello,

In AtmelStudio 7, I have a complicated project made with Atmel start for SAM E70 I like to change to SAM V71. How do I use project ->re-configure for a different device?  I can only find the menu to change the package from LQFP to a BGA. I don't see how to change "selected device ARSAME70Q21".

 

These are the steps I did before got that.

 

1. I used File-> New Atmel Start project with the wizard to generate the project.

I am made a small empty  solution with only main() and SPI driver to figure out the process.

2. In the solution explorer, I right click to get properties. At Device, I put the new ATSAMV71Q21. In the files, I see some got the V71 in the file name, others have E70.

3. I did the project ->re-configure. I obtained the screen at the top of my post. Is there some menu I missed

 

 

 

I see some files inside \.atmelstart\ that has the word ATSAME70Q21. Is there a way to rework them?

 

Thanks

Hello frog_jr. Thanks for your response. Could you add more details please? I did the change device. It did not change anything when I went back to project->re-configure.

What were you expecting to change?

This will not change any of your code, but when you compile/link it will output files for the new device.

Obviously, if there are register names or configuration bits that are different between the devices, you will have to make those changes yourself.

The change of processor doesn't see to go in the direction from project properties to atmel start. Atmel start still has the first processor  in it.

 

I was expecting it to behave as you said, for the new .h  files to be created with v71 in the file names. The pre-requisite  is for Atmel Start to know about the change.

 

Only the hri subfolder has files with  mention of e70. I don't know how the the rest of the files are supposed to change from processor to processor.
