I've overlooked something. I have a new SAMc21N18 xplained board with CAN transceivers. This device is available in the list when I attempt to create a new GCC project without ASF, however I need to learn how to use the CAN drivers in ASF. When I attempt to create a new project using an atmel board with ASF, the SAMC21N18 is not available, just the SAMC21J18 and all previous boards. 

 

The ASF version on my PC is 3.35. I've tried to search for updates, atmel studio claims no updates are available.

fyi, the extensions server for Atmel Studio 7.0.1645 when EOL; there's a way to manually update it.

7.0.1652 has the current server :

All though these posts are rather old, I do have the same issue:  "When I attempt to create a new project using an atmel board with ASF, the SAMC21N18 is not available, just the SAMC21J18 and all previous boards."

As ASF4 seems to have still a lot of issues, at least regarding to CAN-FD implementation, I 'd like to use the ASF3 framework.

Any ideas how to over come this issue of not being able to choose a custom board with the ATSAMC21N18A MCU?

 

(ASF version: 3.45.0.1425)

 

Thanks!

You are in the wrong place - you need the ARM bit of this site - not the AVR bit.

Weird, as I look at the top of this page it says:  

 

 

 

Thanks anyway.

Yup, it is one of the great unsolved mysteries why Atmel have chosen to put a generic "ASF" forum within the depths of "AVr Freaks". It tends to mean that there are not many "ARM eyeballs" here and questions go unnoticed/unanswered. Anything about ARM is far more likely to get a response placed somewhere under: https://community.atmel.com/atme... - that is https://community.atmel.com/foru...
