Hello All,

I just joined this wonderful forum, I am sure  this subject has been discussed many times before, but I have 2 simple question for forum!!

 

1-I bought this STK500 from ebay, Is this a genuine STK by Atmel, or fake one?

2-Can I use it with AS6 or I need oler AVR like 5 or 4?

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATMEL-AV...

 

P.S. I came from world of PIC microchip, now I am getting interested in Atmel micro!

 

Thanks for any positive input! cheers

Welcome to the forums!

That looks like a real one to me!

Yes it is compatible with AS6.  Studio will update the firmware automatically.

 

Enjoy and welcome to the AVR!

Did you?

 

Ebay says there's still 6 days to go on that item - and no bids yet!

Jim,

 

Thank so much for reply, I feel much better for now, till I get the board and try it my self. I am so glad I found this forum with lots of good info for my future projects.

awneil,

Yes I saw that listing, it looks like the seller has more than one STK500, cause I bid that one yesterday and won it! that's why I post it on this forum to make sure I got the real, one.

         Hello,

I am not even sure if this is the correct place to post this query.

I did not see anything that was exactly what I have a question about.

 

I have recently purchased an Seeed Technology AVRISP V2.0 Programmer (PN 105990010).

My system is an Intel I7 Processor at 4Ghz with 32GB Ram. Operating system is Windows 8.1 64 Bit (with all current updates).

I am running The Atmel Studio 7

Atmel Studio 7 (Version: 7.0.1417 - )
© 2015 Atmel Corp.
All rights reserved.

OS Version: Microsoft Windows NT 6.2.9200.0
Platform: Win32NT

 

 

What I am having difficulty with is if I connect the AVRISP V2.0 what shows up in the Available Tools Window is the Simulator, and an STK500.

If I select the STK500 for device programming and then set up the device type and the ISP for the interface I get an error dialog box.

 

Unable to connect to tool STK500 (COM6)

 

If I select the Details drop down I get the following.

Timestamp: 2017-05-31 19:04:29.073
Severity:  ERROR
ComponentId: 20100
StatusCode: 1
ModuleName: TCF (TCF command: Tool:connect failed.)

The signature of the attached tool is AVRISP_2, which is unexpected.

 

If I look in Device Manager Under Windows Jungo shows up correctly..

The programmer shows up simply as a Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (Com 5 Depends on whin USB port I plug the unit into, but is always either 5 or 6).

 

Any way Doe any one know how to make this device get recognized correctly by the Atmel Studio 7 Application?

 

         Thank You For your time.

Note: It is Chinese version with PL2303(USB to Serial)

The Seeed AVRISP is similar to a Waveshare AVRISP as both have a PL2303 USB-to-UART bridge.

There's this caution :

http://www.waveshare.com/product/mcu-tools/avr/programmers-debuggers/usb-avrisp-pl.htm

...

Supports AVR Studio 4 ONLY. Doesn't support AVR Studio 5/6 or higher versions.

Possibly via AVRDUDE as an external tool in Atmel Studio.

Might consider a STK500-compatible AVR ISP as it's ready for Atmel Studio :

fyi, Atmel Studio 7.0.1417 replaced Jungo with WinUSB.

 

P.P.S.

Thank You very Much for the speedy response.

This is a little discouraging...

Since Mouser (point of Purchase) had this listed as a new item I would have thought that it would be up to current specifications.

So any way I think I will see about sending it back and getting something that will actually work.

 

      Thank You again.

The OP has already spent her $29.50.  So it is worth trying to get it to work.

 

It s not a genuine Atmel STK500.   Nor is it a genuine Atmel AVRISP-2.

 

However,  it should "appear" as a STK500 on COM6 when you have installed the PL2303 USB-Serial driver.

 

I do not own this device.   But I guess that it should work with stk500.exe, avrdude.exe,  CodeVision, BasCom, ... and almost any PC software designed for AVR.

 

1.  Confirm that appears as COM6 in the Device Manager.

2.  type:  avrdude -c stk500 -P com6 -p ATmega328P

3.  copy-paste your command and the response from avrdude

 

You can try similar experiments with Codevision, Bascom, Imagecraft, ...  i.e. call it "STK500 on COM6"

Make notes of exactly what you have done,

 

As a general rule,   software asks some questions from the hardware to check it has a genuine Atmel programmer.  

A well-designed "clone" gives the correct answers.    It seems that AS7 is not getting the answer that it expected.

However,  avrdude.exe, stk500.exe, Bascom, ... are more forgiving.

 

I can run software on an Arduino that makes it appear as a genuine Atmel STK500.   And AS7 will happily use this "clone".

 

I suspect that there will be other owners of your "Seeed programmer" on this forum.   They could tell you exactly what works.

Meanwhile,  you just have to do your own experiments.   Make notes.   Report back.

 

David.
