Hi,

Just received a STK500 and a AT90S8515, but I done know how to get started using the MCU. Where do I find a tutorial "Getting started with AVR" or code examples? What tools are best to use?

I think I understand the MCU basics and my idea was to make a LED light chaser to start with, maybe this is too ambitious to start with?

Guess that I don't expect any response - it seems that this forum have not activity, why? Are there other sources of info on AVR that are more active?

Regards,
"AVR novice"

Hello.
If you see in the STK500 manual in the AVRstudio help files you will see a simple codeexample for the stk500 with switches and leds. this is the code programmed in the 8515 delivered width the STK500 kit (see Example applications). It is a good start for experimenting with the leds.
Also this site provides links to several application notes that may be of help when you are getting a little more experienced.

Another good page is http://www.dontronics.com/8515.html which have some 'getting started' code for downloading. (http://www.dontronics.com/doclub... , username for download: files, password: dontronics)

Regarding tools, you will come a long way with AVRstudio and STK500. In addition the GNU c compiler may be useful (its free) and the ICE200 emulator ($199) will sure make code debugging a peace of cake :-)

This page is a very new addition to the world wide web (i dont think it has been up for more than a couple of days) and therefore the activity on this phorum is rather low yet.

But as soon as people are starting to notice this page and use the phorum it will sure be a good place for seeking help.

hi,
look at this site for some code examples: http://www.avr.com7.org there are a lot of good examples in assembler, and some in bascom. take a look;)
