My first post, so be nice please :-)
I’m a newbie to AVRs and Microcontrollers, but I’ve cut my teeth on PC hardware and programming.
I want to play with an AVR microcontroller with an onboard USB OTG controller (I believe a AT90USB1287 or AT90USB647 ?) (I need my AVR to be able to open a large file on a USB Flash disk)
There are a number of different evaluation and development boards around (i.e. an STK500 with STK501 adapter) but not many third party board support the 64 pin microcontrollers ?
I have a choice, develop with the USB AVRs and find a development board for 64 pin, or develop with any of the others AVR versions and use a separate USB controller via SPI (like the FTDI Vinculum VNC1L chip, or the Maxim MAX3421E chip).
So, I suppose I’m after two pieces of related advice... to develop an AVR project with a USB flash disk I’m after recommendations on development boards and recommendations on all-in-one AVR microcontroller with USB OTG or microcontroller + separate USB chipset ?
I look forward to being a regular on this board during this project.
