Dear All,

I am quite new on AVR programming, but already made some jobs with AVR STUDIO 5.0 and AVR DRAGON programmer.

 

Basically, I am working on a ATTINY13 in DIP case 8 pins.

Compiling the c program with AVR STUDIO 5.0 and downloading with AVR DRAGON on the ATTINY13 hex files ("Debug" -> ".hex").

All good on ATTINY13.

 

Now, there are the ATTINY13 and ATTINY13A version.

I have ordered some samples on distributor of ATTINY13 and ATTINY13A programmed with same .hex file.

 

The question is: the compiled programs for ATTINY13 works as well on ATTINY13A device?

 

If I try to compile the same programs by AVR STUDIO 5.0 selecting ATTINY13A device i found out that in "Debug" archive:

-> .hex file is the SAME compiled for ATTINY13.

-> other output files have some little difference.

 

Thanks for your help!

The difference between a 13 and a 13A is just the die process. There is no difference in code or functionality. The only thing that you might need to worry about is slight differences in electrical characteristics.

Spend an hour or two downloading Studio6, Studio5 has so many bugs it's not worth using!

Have you looked at the migration app note?

Thanks,
I know that basically 13 and 13A difference is production and results is that 13A power consumption is lower...so I was wondering why AVR STUDIO / DRAGON ask if your device is 13 or 13A when start a new project / programming?

I betcha they have different device type signatures? (this can be verified by searching for device id in both datasheets I think)
