I know the Studio can edit source files for the STK300 but can it

Be used to parallel or serial program an ATmega103l on an STK300? How?

Be used to debug programs on an STK300? How?

Be used to emulate programs on an STK300? How?

Any other things that the Studio can do with the STK300?

Right now I'm using GCC to compile C programs and ISP them with AVR ISP 2.65

Lost in the dust,

Hi,

My situation goes one step beyond yours :)

I run studio on NT which does not support the parallel dongle from the stk300 at all, so I assemble on nt, drop the file on a mapped drive, pick it up with the isp software on a 95 box next to me and dump it in with that.

Needless to say cutting some steps out of that cycle is on my list of stuff to do.

Here is what I came up with :

I am going to use the existing parallel dongle to program a 2313 I have to become a serial dongle as per application note 910. Then I have a choice of either adding the 10pin connector to that to plug into the dongle port on the stk300, or I can just leave the wires hanging to plug into my breadboards.

AVR Studio should happily talk to the serial dongle according to what I read and have been told, and NT should talk to the serial dongle as well. So I think I have the solution to my problem, and it sounds like something similar will work for you.

My having all the parts on hand for the serial dongle is handy as well. Aside from the cpu (which is designed as a 1200, but I have the 2313's so in they go), all it needs is a bunch of other discrete parts. The serial port connector is about the most expensive part in the lot.

Hope this helps.

Mike and Jon,

You can use Studio to program the STK300. However, you need the STK500 to do it. The dongle connects to the STK500 and then the STK500 connects to the STK300. I don't know the exact details on how to do that. I was at an Atmel Seminar and that's what I was told.

I program my STK300 with Atmel's ISP program using the parallel dongle with my computer running WinNT 4.0. Co-workers can program on some workstations and not with others. I've heard that there is a beta version of ISP out there somewhere. You may want to call your Atmel rep to see if he/she can help you there. You could start a new thread asking if there is a new version coming out.

I'm sure Studio can't emulate on the STK300 but it can simulate the parts that the STK300 supports. That's all I can answer for now.

Jon,

I forgot to mention, try the Pony Prog at http://www.lancos.com/prog.html. They have a programmer that is AVR compatible. I was told that it works better than the Atmel ISP in some ways. I didn't ask but I'd guess it works with WinNT.
