Hi everybody! I'm new on this forum and new at XMEGAs.. so.. sorry in advance :)

I'm developing a portable device with Bluetooth, external flash memory (either chip or microSD) and a couple sensors (I2C and SPI).
I'm oriented in choosing an ATxmega256A1 or 384 and well, I found out it's not supported by STK600 starter kit.

I'd like to know whether it's an error (ATxmega128A1 is supported and should be almost the same) or whether there is some other kind of starter/development kit I can start with this MCU

Alternatively, I'll shift to ATxmega256A3 which is declared as supported..

Thank you!

Development should be the same for all the A1 chips. The only difference is the amount of memory.

I don't know about availablity of ATXMEGA256A1 evaluation kit. But as a suggestion, you can replace ATXMEGA128A1 on available boards by other A1 series. Because they are pin compatible.

So basically I need to buy the socket card, in this case the STK600-RC100X-13 (100-pin TQFP) and then attach (or sold?) the XMEGA on it, right?

And, as the ATXMEGA256A1 has the same pins as the ATXMEGA128A1 it should work without any problem..
Same for ATxmega256A3 in place of the ATxmega128A3. Right?
