Hello Guys,

I have finished a code and its ready for mass production. For first phase we are trying to download the code on 10,000 pieces of ATMEGA2564RFR2-ZFR.

I've contacted with digikey for this purpose, they replied that they didn't have sockets to download the code so they can't help.

 

My question. I'm trying to contact with atmel for this purpose, but I think I don't get the proper contact or email.
Can you help me to reach the correct support contact?

Is there another way to download the code on microcontrollers for mass production?

I doubt Atmel would be interested for just 10k pieces ?

 

There are plenty of 3rd-party companies who will do device programming.

Try speaking to your "mass production" partner - if they can't do it themselves (possibly as part of testing), they should have some suggestions ...

In-lieu of a distributor, Microchip is able to program MCU that are in-stock though would inquire at Microchip because AVR are somewhat new to Microchip's stock.

Microchip has a partial reel service if the reel(s) is in-stock.

If want to try other distributors besides Digi-Key, one or more may have the compatible socket for the programmer they operate; they'll be able to obtain that RF AVR if they don't have stock.

A roundabout way is to inquire at manufacturers of MCU programmers if they have a combination that would work and, if they're willing, to forward your inquiry to one of their customers.

Via the PCBA test jig.

mega2564RFR2 uses AVR ISP on PB1 through PB3; if those pins are free then breakout standard 6 pin AVR ISP to pads.

Some low price AVR ISP can reach to 3Mbits/sec (bps)

AVRISP2 can reach 8Mbps.

AVR PDI can approach 30Mbps.
