So finally after a couple of days I found the "Demo for XMEGA-E5 Xplained" for the Xmega32E5 Xplained board.

 

Anyone has any idea on how to actually get the project files? The current Studio version doesn't co-operate as it seems to know nothing about the board and this is what I get from the Microchip site, no download link to the project, and don't be fooled by the line on the left that says "download".

 

The project was in ASF3.6 according to the docs and with AS6, does anyone still run AS6 and able to send the project?

 

 

 

This topic has a solution.

Is this what you are looking for ?

No, I'm after the actual project with all the c and h files. I have the packs installed but I don't have the project called "Demo for XMEGA-E5 Xplained".

 

I'm trying to restore the original functionality to my board.

Thank you very much! The project was automatically updated to AS7 but I think I was to quick to accept stuff as I get around 163 errors. I think it has to do with using the correct pack like the other post mentions.

 

But some progress finally. laugh

If you had taken a look at the 163 errors they could probably have been solved by a few search-n-replace, due to changed register and bit names. But that's the beauty of packs: If an old pack works for you, then by all means keep using it. :-)

I attempted to do the search-n-replace with the historic Xplained 32E5 projects.    It is PAINFUL.

 

Much easier to set the Pack to 1.0.30 and live in a time-warp.

 

Obviously you write current code for the current Pack(s).

 

It is a pleasant chip but has substantial differences to the A1, A4 Xmegas.    And it would be nice if there was a 128E5 model !

Has it not been migrated to Start then?

 

EDIT: OK so that would apparently be a "no" then :-(

Well my needle was found in India and I'm happy. cheeky Younger people do a better job at searching it seems.
