This is probably the dumbest question on avrfreaks...
But how to I connect a SAM7X128 to a computer so I can program it?
Under tools it only lists an evaluation Kit, and not a programmer.
I am flirting with the idea of trying an AVR32 or Atmel ARM. I am unsure which way to go. I want to buy something to program them both (if possible), so that maybe I could give both a try and see the strong and weak points of each of them. At the moment I have a good old faithful STK500 *love*.
I was looking at a JTAG ICE MK2 (because the AVRONE is mega bucks). Can I use the JTAG ICE MK2 to program the Atmel ARM range? If not what do you use?
Thank you and kind regards.
PS feel free to offer any insight into your experiences with AVR32 or ARM, and which flavour you prefer. When I searched this forum about the topic, all I found was some guy repeatedly complaining about the supply chain of the AVR32's. They are in stock everywhere I lock, and they are even cheaper than the chips the guy recommended to use because he said they where MUCH cheaper. Things change I guess.
PS No.2: If you know of any get you going/start up tutorials for AVR32 or ARM please feel free to to share.
