Hmmm, I guess it makes sense but then shouldn't we also have a forum for other Atmel specific IDEs?

 

We have...

 

Compilers and General Programming

A forum for discussions about compilers and general programming topics not specifically related to a particular microcontroller.

 

...but that is specifically for non-specific microcontrollers.

 

So to be consistent we'd need...

 

Atmel Studio

 

MPLABX

 

Other IDEs (eg Codevision, IAR, Rowley)

 

 

#1 Hardware Problem? https://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/...

#2 Hardware Problem? Read AVR042.

#3 All grounds are not created equal

#4 Have you proved your chip is running at xxMHz?

#5 "If you think you need floating point to solve the problem then you don't understand the problem. If you really do need floating point then you have a problem you do not understand."

I'd just add it to the name of the Studio forum.

since longterm, obviously AtmelStudio was going to be abandoned and MPLAB was going to be the all in one official DevelpmentIDE

it is make sense in term of Studio (now it says "Atmel Studio (AVR related)" i.e. MPLAB discution ONLY for develop avr project in Mplab)

 

transition to new IDE obviously it will take years but...

 

@js microchip forums is not "AVRfreaks community" thats all ;)

AVR Microcontrollers Now Supported in MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment | Microchip Technology

Chandler, Arizona

Oct. 3, 2018

...

AVR support will continue to be added to Atmel Studio 7 and Atmel START for current and future AVR devices. 

...

“Microchip continues to explore ways to provide more offerings and improve the development experience for our customers,” said Steve Drehobl, vice president of Microchip’s 8-bit MCU business unit. “With the addition of the AVR MCUs to the MPLAB ecosystem, designers who are accustomed to MPLAB X IDE now have more MCU options to choose from. Traditional AVR MCU programmers can also stay with Atmel Studio 7, as we are continuing to offer new device support, add enhancements and implement bug fixes as needed.”

In general, it's not time to start a new "Forum" until the closest existing "reasonable choice" starts to be overwhelmed and people complain "there are too many MPLAB questions here - I thought it was supposed to the the Atmel Studio forum!"

Hi all

 

Does anyone know if there is a way to be informed when Microchip sorts out the AVR related problems with MPLAB X?

An email list, for example.

 

Take care

Thanks.

 

I think I had already done that, but I did it again anyway just in case.

I do hope that Microchip are never involved in the space program.

We'd never get to Mars.

With the laundry(toilet paper) list of things to be sorted out, creating another forum is not a high priority I would think.

You are correct, and I am a little confused at how my quoting your post was mixed up with the OP.  My apologies.

 

It might have to do with my originally quoting the OP, and deleting that when I realised the age of the thread, and instead quoted your post and possibly my browser did not handle the copy/paste properly.

 

I dunno.  Again, my apologies.

Jim, Its okay, no need for apologies.

 

I find it difficult these days to keep following the threads am part of due to the problem of email notification....hope they fix it soon...

  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

The actual necromancer was:  https://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/mplab-cannot-find-file-error - which has now been split off.

 

I was hoping that the next necromance might spot the link, and follow it:

Moe’s comment was over a year ago.....

 

I think this thread has run its course as the add on has been split off
