Hi, Friends.

 

I have JTAG ICE debugger and programmer. I have  made Circuit and connected as per the ATMEL SChematic PDF.( AVR32768: 32-Bit AVR UC3 C Series Schematic
Checklist). I have connected  My chip as per the Circuit given in this document(AVR32768) I attached 12 MHZ crystal with 15 pf capacitor. Power up with 3.3 V. MADE USB AND JTAG CONNECTION as per the schematic.  now i want to do following things. 

 

1) Read Device Signature

2) Load the code using atmel studio 7 and JTAG ICE.

3) How do i LOAD the code and READ DEVICe SIGNATURe WITHOUT JTAG ICE PROGRAMMER, ONLY USING ATmel studio or FLIP tool..?

 

Thanks in Advance

EJ

Answer for question 3.  You use a bootloader on the chip.  If that chip came with a bootloader installed, then the flip tool might do the job.  Probably though, the chip has no bootloader so it must be installed with the JTAG ICE.

 

There are several versions of JTAG ICE.  I have the JTAGICE mkII, and I've heard of the JTAGICE3.  I guess they will work with your chip. 

 

First I would plug your JTAG ICE into the chip and the computer.  Run Atmel Studio.  Click Tools > Device programming and see if Studio finds your JTAG ICE.

 

I'm using Atmel's latest programmer/debugger Atmel-ICE as you can see in the second picture.  If Studio can see your device it should show up there.

Thanks Steve17.

 

My atmel studio is not detecting the programmer/debugger.

 

how do i know my chip has come with bootloader.

 

my Flip is not showing the controller AT32UC3C0512 in Device list.

 

Should i need any other driver software or something else?

 

i have this JTAG ICE (http://robokits.co.in/programmer...)

 

They mentioned All AVR which has JTAG interface so i bought it. do not know whether it works or not. 

 

Thanks

As far as I know, the only chips that come with a bootloader are those on Xplained boards.  I think it's a good bet your chip does not have a bootloader.

 

Your programmer/debugger is for the Atmega family.  Those are 8 bit chips.  You have a 32 bit chip.  I'm not familiar with the 32 bit chips but I'm guessing your JTAG ICE won't work.

 

You probably need drivers, but I'm guessing the right drivers still won't get that thing to work with your chip.  You may have better luck finding drivers for Win7 than Win10.

 

There are probably others around here that are more familiar with your situation than I am. 

 

The only solution that I know of is buy the Atmel-ICE.  It's the best programmer/debugger Atmel has, but it costs $130.

It won't. As it's a clone of a debugger dating from around the year 2000 it only supports about 10 models of the 300+ models AVR8 !

Thanks both Steve17 and Clawn.

 

then what might be the solution.?

 

is there any other way to communicate with chip. 

 

Thanks

Well Atmel's current "programmer of choice" for all things (AVR8, AVR32, ARM) is the Atmel-ICE but it is a pretty expensive device. Before it existed the "cheap" way to program AVr32 was the AVRISPmkII. You may still be able to get hold of one of those for less than an Atmel-ICE.

However note that an Atmel-ICE is only a programmer - it doesn't do debugging. There is an argument to say that AVR32 (like ARM) are so complicated that it's close to impossible to develop software for them without having a debugger available. So the $130 Atmel-ICE may actually be the best item to get in the end.

 

(life is so much simpler with Cortex ARM chips - you can get a board that includes a full debugger for about $10 from some suppliers if you want to play the 32 bit game)
