When can we expect a LUFA port for my toaster?
Is it an 8-bit toaster, or a 32-bit one?
Or, heaven forbid, it's not a 16-bit toaster, is it?

There will need to be several toaster ports, e.g. for big- and little-endian toasters.

"No wonder I'm confused..."

Let me get this straight:

-- Dean created LUFA for AVR8s, and all was well with the world.
-- I >>thought<< there was some Atmel acknowledgement/support that aided Dean. I could be remembering incorrectly.
-- Dean went to an internship at Atmel.
-- Dean is going to work at Atmel.
-- Atmel makes ARMs, including Cortex.
-- The port of LUFA to ARM is done at/by/for NXP. A direct Atmel competitor in the ARM arena.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

It was ported for video years ago... http://www.amiga-hardware.com/showhardware.cgi?HARDID=505

I'm guessing that once Dean signs a contract of employment he'll be forbidden from doing this any more. In fact it may even state that anything he does is owned by Atmel - worth reading the small print!!

So Dean is likely to share a cell with Julian Assange...at least he will be in good company. :lol: Plenty of geek talk.

This is not a problem, Johan. Thankfully, bread tends to be quite uniform in dimensions end-to-end.

There are open questions, though. What is the typical role of the toaster, host or device? Thinking about it, on a busy morning, even a toast on-the-go might come handy... :-P

Bread!?!

I was thinking of a LUFA toaster for baking PCBs! Of course...I only found 12 bit toasters...it looks like someone got hungry and took a nibble off one end...

Mostly right - Atmel's form of LUFA support is mainly in their donation of VID/PID combinations needed by the demos (and not money). That said, Atmel have always been very supportive in general for my work, including sending me free gear in embarrassing quantities and landing me the internship (and now future job).

Indeed. I had to get my agreement signed in ink before I could sign the Atmel contract, which I only barely managed to do (much to Atmel's chagrin). I've discussed the situation of my personal projects and I am - allegedly - allowed to continue my autonomy outside of work, as long as I only develop for Atmel chips.

In the case of the NXP work, they are working in parallel with my own work, but I'm being very careful not to write a single line directly for them. How it works now is that I develop LUFA by myself for the Atmel chips, and then NXP pull the trunk at their leisure and continue their own coding efforts on top of it with their own dedicated team.

- Dean :twisted:

Make Atmel Studio better with my free extensions. Open source and feedback welcome!

I don't get it. So if you decide to build an NXP-based pill timer for your grandma and then decide to publish the project, you're busted?

The Dark Boxes are coming.
