I've been following a couple of Threads that discuss the (new) AVR128DA chips, and thought I get one and Flash an LED.
Ought to be doable, (I said naively), as I unburied my SNAP programmer, looked up its pin-out, and made a programming cable for the PCB.
Know that since neither Bascom nor ZBasic (yet?) support the AVR128DA's I already crossed one giant hurdle and by deciding that I could write my first program in C to flash an LED on the new chip.
A few minutes on Google and I had a pretty good idea of the code, as there are plenty of examples to simply copy at this point.
I'll figure out .c .a .s .h and whatever other files there are in time.
I load Studio, which I routinely use for programming .hex files into chips, but have never used as an actual programming environment.
I start a new project and there is a pull-down box for one's chip selection.
Unfortunately, Studio 7.0.xxx doesn't list the AVR128DA's.
So I use the update option via another pull-down and spent 2 hours letting it update my version of Studio.
Restart Studio and there are still no AVR128DA chips...
That was frustrating.
So I load MPLab X IDE which I tried a couple of times when I first purchased a Snap programmer, and have not used since.
(That was a terrible experience. It kept resetting the Fuses on my AVR chips to some default value every time I used it as a .hex file programmer.)
I've not used the MPLab X IDE or the SNAP programmer since then.
So, I take deep breath, figure I'll try it again.
I click on Create New, Standalone Project, All Families, and it, also, fails to list the AVR128DA chips.
Since I'm not seeing the chips under either IDE either I have to go look for the most up to date versions and try again, or I'm missing something basic, (which is very possible).
Unfortunately, (tinkering wise, anyways), I have to work tomorrow, so its off to bed.
I had truly hoped to see a little tiny LED flash on and off this evening.
After Studio updated itself I expected to at least find the chip...
I'll give it another try in a couple of days.
