Count me in, can't say not to the possibility of free stuff cheeky

 

My favorite project is the "Quadrature decoding using Timers and CCL", because it makes good use of the timer, event system and custom logic.

Almost all work is done in hardware.

 

In my projects, I also like to offload work to the peripherals whenever possible, sometimes to do stuff they were not specifically designed for.

My vote is for the Quadrature Counting.

 

Of course, there is some Irony in the headline

 

ATtiny1617 launch AVRFreaks give away...

 

Cool, I think, some ATtiny1617 giveaways....

 

sadly. as the big print giveth, the fine print taketh away, there are no ATtiny1617 giveaways at all...

No, but I do like to get the (correct) bit(s) between my teeth !

Like the Quadrature Decoder. It has some meat to it. Never used START. Seems strange coming from "plain AS-c"!

I have used a couple of START example projects with the T817 Xplained board, it all worked but I learned nothing.

 

Having yet another layer of names and functions to learn seems to confuse me, heck I bark at "plain AS-c"! devil

OK, I'm in.

It would be nice to have a board for the new T1617.

 

I've tinkered with the programmable logic on the E5, but I've not really used it for a real project, (yet).

 

It would be nice to be able to see what one could accomplish with the enhanced peripherals within this Tiny.

Edit:  I forgot to select one of the two projects.

Seems everyone so far has selected the Quadrature decoder.

Admittedly that is a very cool project.

 

But I'll vote for the Night Light because a micro project can never have too many LED's!

I'm in; always like free stuff.

 

I'll go with the night light, I love LED's.

 

What gives with the Atmel Start?  Is this another way to develop code for AVR's ?  A gui drag it all together way?

I vote for  Quadrature decoding using Timers and CCL just because it is a more useful example for work I might do with a tiny.

Half way through the giveaway (QD 4, and NL 3) , good input from many of you, but would like to hear from the >200 people that have viewed but not responded to the post. cheeky

 

Got a pm from the Night Light creator, and he mentioned that the document for Night Light is fresh from the press (http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/cn/AppNotes/cn595063.pdf).

 

In addition if he wins, by an overwhelming majority, he will post a short video of the NL in action. wink

 

Common guys make yourselves heard !

I'm one of those - I deliberately didn't post because I don't want one thanks! (I have boxes and boxes of "free stuff" from Atmel already) Tto be honest "tiny" chips are not up my street anyway.

OK ...

 

Like Who-me, I saw the headline and got interested.

But as it's actually an ATtiny817, like clawson, that's not really up my street.

But maybe I could be persuaded ...

 

The night light would probably be most applicable - as I would be most likely to use these for a "backgound" low-power/wakeup for a bigger processor ...

The 'Start' project doesn't seem to recognise these - it says it's a "Custom board" !

Yeah, also like the Quadrature decoder project. It's of more use to one of my current projects and of more interest on a "intellectual" level.

Count me in!

Well, I'm not a particularly active member here, but anyway... I vaguely remember discussions here about the new ATtinys, claiming they had all sorts of issues (with the datasheet, AS7 compatibility, something like that) - and if that's the case, an Xplained board may be more trouble for me than it's worth frown

My tiny1617 launch favorite is the Quadrature Decoder as it really highlights the flexibility of your peripherals.

I'll go with the Quadrature Decoder only because I designed a Gray code input device using a 12-position, make-before-break wafer switch and a diode matrix. We took the ball bearing detente out to remove the "click" so the knob turned easily. This design went into production in 1977 with four on each Embargo arcade video game. A quadrature version would have been much simpler.

More votes, and good feedback... smiley

 

The creator of the Quadrature Decodes got in contact, and decided to reward all those votes with a picture and video of the prototype in action. laugh

Hey, AVR Freaks has an youtube channel? I'd like a channel were every member could post vids of projects in action, or as support for forum questions.

Just in the creator of the nightlight is sweating bullets (crying), since he is a bit behind, so he decided to post the demo to turn the voting tide !wink

 

Enjoy, and VOTE ! !

Last day of the campaign !

 

In the future we would like to run more campaigns like this one, tied to other AVR product launches...so if you haven't posted your opinion/vote, make yourself heard !

 

We appreciate the feedback many of you have provided, and it will be used to improve. :)  

 

Results will be announced Friday (24.03.17).

I'm in for the quadrature Decoder.

 

I don't know anything about this new ATtiny817 controller - it's the first I've heard of it.

 

But as I am occasionally over my head in motion control projects, I'd like to be able to learn more (HANDS-ON) about the ATtiny817's capabilities and how they could be targeted toward my needs.

 

My new "Open Builds" 'C' frame XL router needs servo drives, rather than stepper motors.

 

This is some nice work by both designers!

Great campaign the lucky winners are: @el-tangas, @ka7eh, @frogjr, @robshaver, and @microcarl. :) (will pm)

 

Thanks to all who viewed, voted, and specially to the QD and NL creators.

 

We'll try this again in the not so far future.

I just acknowledged Martin's PM.

 

Thanks for the opportunity to participate.

 

I'm looking forward to checking this new controller out, in hopes of finding some useful applications where it can find a home.

I know I'm very very new at this, but I'd love to have one of these!

 

I vote for the light because it's something I would use.

DOH!

 

I apparently got over excited and didn't read closely at all...

 

Maybe next time :)

Perhaps this thread should now be made non-sticky ?

 

Or even locked?
