Hi all :shock:
A heads-up about new AVR tools.
Mikroelektronika has the newest version of their AVR dev board out now...the EasyAVR3.. it is really cool looking and is 114.00, it connects and is powered by the USB port. If it is as good as their PIC dev board (I have one) then it will be super!
They are also about ready to unveil the new Pascal compiler for AVR...these guys are real Pascal gurus and they use Delphi to create all of their compilers for PIC and AVR so I bet this compiler will be very nice...they will have a downloadable demo with a 2kb limit available.
I really like Pascal and Delphi and I am eagerly awaiting this new compiler..the other Pascal compiler for AVR is very expensive but Mikroelektronika prices their compilers so that a hobbiest can justify the purchase. The PIC Pascal compiler is just 99$ when bought with a dev board...I expect the AVR Pascal to be similarly priced.
Their BASIC compiler is also due out soon if you are a BASIC fan.
