I just wish that it will come with USB...

A more rugged power switch would be great.

I for one prefer to have the integrated tool systems. Tooooooooo.... much clutter is always getting in the way. So my ideal environment would just be something that can do everything a STK500 and dragon do in one package.

Digi-Key is currently showing 124 Dragons in stock...

I noticed this, too. so they got another bunch of dragons before the promotion would run out :) I wanted to order a few other things along with it to avoid the small quantities handling fee, but they ran out of Dragons before my list was complete (admittedly, it took me about two weeks before I was able to finish the list with other stuff I need). Now if only Christmas hadn´t gotten in the way, my Dragon could already be on its way :(

It has to be more than just a ROHS compliant STK500, I've just received my freebie '500 from the online seminar via Digikey and there's a sticker on the bottom of the box which says it is already ROHS compliant.

.... Also hoping for a repeat of the Dragon freebie thread :wink:

Digikey also lists the STK500 as all ready being ROHS compliant so your right about it not just being ROHS compliant.

:? Adam - Unless I've misunderstood you, that's what I said.... the STK500 is already ROHS compliant, so the STK500X must have some extra functionality of some sort.

As long it has a USB interface I'm happy, and a Student discount would be good...

I must say I really like the look of the Circuit-ED boards. They have everything on them, including the kitchen sink. USB, Char LCD, graphics LCD, SD/MMC, CF card, RS232, RS485, RTC, Temp, CAN.

The works. A version like this for all AVR mcus would be awesome.

Hah, and what do you know, they make an AVR one. But it only handles the DIP format AVRs. They really should have had the pinout/layout for the STK501 type boards ... Also High-voltage programming capability is missing, but oh well.

Sorry. I was just agreeing with you in a slightly confusing manner.

It would be really awesome if the new system included some development space :)

I have an STK500 that's old enough that it has a dataflash on it:
Looking at the later STK500 from a production perspective, a number of the components are obsolete, or replacement parts for obsolete parts. The 8535+1200 combination, as an example. And now there are 20-ish pin types and no way to plug them in without expensive socket adapters (SI becomes an issue when you use the daughterboard connectors).

Since a single usb device can behave as multiple serial ports, a single AT90USB could absorb the programming function, the serial port functions, save a connector, and remove the external power supply. Wether to add debug functionality to it or not is a political question.

Maybe we should set up a virtual betting table and bet pebbles. The one who gets the most points right receives letters with pebbles, and a confused customs officer.

Hi all,

First off, thanks for the heads up on the webinar deal. I have been looking to update my tools for sometime, and this was a great deal.

As to the wants and needs for a new development board, I think it would great to have selectable power settings (5.0v, 3.3v down to 1.8V) to allow testing through the voltage range of these devices. Also, as a big fan of serial interfaces, it would great to see a development board utilizing one of the multiple UART parts (Atmega164P would be great), with pads for second serial port.
