Hi 

I'm still quite new to Atmel Studio. So far I have been playing around with SAMD20 xplained pro. Now I want to create a project for a custom board using ASF.

I used http://start.atmel.com to create the start project for my custom board and imported it into Atmel Studio 7. Now I want to add drivers for USART, I2C and SPI but when I launch ASF wizard it always says project not loaded.

I also created a  new project, selected GCC C ASF board project, then selected ATSAMD20G17. With this ASF wizard works. But how do I add my custom board startup files to this project.?

I have googled but so far have not found a working solution.

Can someone help?

TIA

Mia

ASF is not Start. Use one or the other. To add stuff with Start, right click the project and choose 'reconfigure...'

So if I go with Start, none of of libraries in ASF are available to me for configuring the devices and reading/writing to them? I have to write my own?

Start and ASF is not compatible. If you use Start, then you use Start to add libraries/functions. If you use ASF, then you use ASF.

This page seems to say that Start uses ASF, it's just a new version: ASFv4.

Is ASFv3 going away?  The page claims how much better ASFv4 is than v3, so does that mean ASFv4 is the future?  It would be really useful to have some guidance from Atmel.  I am planning a long-term project and I would like to pick the platform that will be supported with regular updates. I have already been burned on a project using SAME70 where the non-ASF software package has been abandoned.
