Hi Freaks,

I am thinking of a (ambitious) project of making a development board full of multiple peripherals (motors, LCD, etc.) interfaced to multiple AVR's (sort of like STK500). I know there are multiple boards that already do this out there, but my main reason in doing this is to learn from the ground up and also to use this board as a prototype board for future design evaluations/proof of concept testing.

What is the 30,000 feet level strategy that I should use to do this?

Do I need multiple bootloaders, etc. for this? I am also thinking of incorporating a JTAG and an ISP interface.

Thanks.

As long as you do it for yourself or be prepared to lose a lot of money trying to sell any...go ahead. :)

Well I am going to do it for myself.

I was thinking of using customized AVR's for example the AT90PWM series for generating PWM etc.

So I was thinking of using push button switches to select the micro to do the function for e.g. use one switch to run the AT90PWM micro program to generate say a menu driven square wave, etc.

Would this idea work?
