Hi,

Twice I have seen reference and/or attachments regarding Design Note 110 - Timer/Counter Basics. I have downloaded and printed it... that is not a problem. My question/problem is where did these good people (who referenced/attached them) find this Design Note and are there more of them (this being numbered 110 would suggest that there are more)?

I have searched Atmel's web site and this web site and did not find anything. I am not the greatest at searches so i apologize if they are here, but would someone point out where, please!

I realize the Application Notes are readily available here and from Atmel but if there is other "tutorial" type literature available why doesn't Atmel OPENLY advertise it. These are just the type of things newbies (of which I am one) need to help them get started.

So, anyway, could someone PLEASE point out the location of these wonderful tidbits of application information if they do exist!

Many thanks in advance,
nuttall

Hi,

Thank you very much for the wonderful further info on the AVR Timer/Counters. My real question though was where do I go to find these documents. As an experiment I tried http://www.atmel.com/atmel/acrobat/ and was told I did not have permission to go there. So, now the real question is how do I go about getting permission to go there. I am not real sure what to use as search criteria on Atmels website to determine where I might accept some sort of "release".

Another question is why do these documents appear to be so "top secret". One would think Atmel would be more than willing to share this information with people so that it may be easier to use their products, ergo... more products are sold!

Again, I apologize if I missed something obvious on Atmels website.

Thanks again,
nuttall

Hi all,

I've tried all links from http://www.atmel.com/atmel/acrob... to
http://www.atmel.com/atmel/acrob...

The only other design note I found was for the UART :

http://www.atmel.com/atmel/acrob...

Anyone else want to continue the search ?

With organized searching, we could document the whole Atmel Document list ;-)

Not even Atmel seems to know what documents they have, at least not if you ask them.

Jasper,

From another post by Jack, the other day I went to

http://www.atmel.com/atmel/acrob...

and downloaded and saved this fax-on-demand listing of the docs. This evening I tried to go there again. I get "The page cannot be found". If you cannot get it let me know and I will be happy to email you the 55k pdf. It will be about 24 hours from now.

Mike

Thanks Mike,

I saw the other thread just after I posted here, and I also got the doc100.pdf

Hi,

Just in case anyone is interested, see below response to my email to Atmel. I thought my question was clear, guess not! Anyone want to buy a STK200 and STK300? I just don't feel this was an appropriate response for my question. I am open to criticism if someone thinks I was being unreasonable in my request.

Hi Stephen,

The answer to your question can be found in the avrfreaks.net thread.

Hi,

While visiting the www.avrfreaks.net website recently a reference was made to AVR Design Note #110. I downloaded this document from avrfreaks and it is a very useful document. My question is why can't I find this document on your web site? I am also wondering if there are not more Design Notes (specifically for the AVR in my case) given the one mentioned above is #110.

I am new to the AVR and I am looking for as much information regarding the AVR as possible. I requested and received a databook and CD from this location but I am really interested in finding out if there are more of these Design Notes.

Thank you,
Stephen L. Nuttall

I have the June 2001 release of the Atmel Products CD. Supposedly this is free upon request. It is supposed to be an image of the Atmel Website as of May 16,2001.

In the Atmel\acrobat subdirectory of this CD there are 785 files (201 MB). Most of these are docxxxx.pdf files. The doc0100.pdf file is an index of what most of these files include. For some reason I tried accessing this file on the Atmel site but it is unavailable at this time. I don't know how you navigate to this doc0100 file on the Atmel site.

Also on the Cd is a directory Atmel\acrobat\software that has 150 files (81.4 MB) of software programs, include files, the avrstdio and many other data files/programs.

Also this site http://www.dg4fac.de/avr/avr_en/... has a pretty good tutorial for the newbie to the AVR micro's.

I hope this information is helpful
