I am taking Studio 7 and Atmel START for the inaugural run and I followed the instructions - I think, to create the configuration but I am not sure I did EVERYTHING

 

I have the following:

SAMD21 XPLAIN with a proto wing board attached to EXT1

 

PortB 0 - 7 as outputs, active LOW on powerup and INIT  Named the pins data_0 - data_7

 

32khz external oscilator connected to clock generator 0 whicj feeds 8mhz clock to CPU

 

That's all.

 

My intention is to have the outputs count in binary, nothing more nothing less for this test.

 

I create the project in START and export it.  I open Studio 7 and select IMPORT>Atmel Start Project, and tell it where the file is.  Studio then goes about the process but I do not see a main.c, nor do I see any other files like in the picture below:

Since teh name of my project was Smart Start I would expect a SmartStart.c file, but nothing.  No START.c, Start.h, or Start_pins either.

 

DO I have to create these files?  If I do then this alleged 'quickstart tool' is kinda useless.

 

I have attached the file exported from the Atmel Start site for review.

 

Thanks all,

JIm

 

EDIT: LAUGHABLE, I cannot upload an Atmel Start project!  Zip files only.

There should be an update to the Atmel Start plugin that fixes this. Gi to the extension manager and go to the available updates tab.

Yep, that worked.

 

Only odd thing is that the main.c does not have the project name in it like the example in the picture above.  It would be nice, but I guess I should not be so picky wink

 

Now to write a simple program and see what happens.  THanks Morten!

Hmh, well, isn't main.c more reasonable? Or were you thinking of a comment or similar? 

 

Also, not sure you are aware, but most driver-level code comes with example functions that you can use to explore the different functionality (I used the Find Symbol feature in the VAssistX menu, searching for 'example' to find the different functions).

Well, EVERYTHING is called MAIN.c so my feeling is that it would just be proper for the START utility to keep things common.  In other words, my project is called SmartStart, so I would figure that based on the picture in the online manual, the MAIN would have been called SmartStart_main.c

 

Like I said, I am being picky
