Hi everyone,

 

I am completely new to the Atmel environment. I have to setup the hardware for an assignment. I have connected AVR ONE with Atmel ® UC3-A3 Xplained board using JTAG interface. I am using Atmel Studio 7 IDE. Before doing programming, I wanted to make sure if the target is connected to AVR ONE programmer. I can read the target voltage but not the device signature. I am getting the following error.

 

ERROR:

Communication error. Try with a lower clock speed. Debugger command setEmulatorMode failed.

Unable to enter programming mode, Verify device selection, interface setting, target power, security bit and connections to the target device.

 

Can someone help me on this issue? Am I missing something?

 

Thank you..

Please see Tip#1 for how to get a screenshot, and how to put it in your post.

  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

The error message wrote:

So did you do that?

So call your teacher over (or whoever set the "assignment"), and get them to check your setup.

 

This will be far, far easier than trying to get complete strangers - who know nothing about you or your "assignment" or your setup - to do it remotely!

 

For a start, all of the equipment you've mentioned is old - so are you sure that it is even working?

 

Presumably, it has been used by previous generations on this "assignment" - so are you sure that all options, configurations, etc have been restored to the correct settings?
