Hello All,

May I know who has successfully interface with an external 32M or 64M SDRAM?

I initially checked in at AVR 8-bit guys but seems to be an impossible challenge. Someone suggested I look into UC3, so I've ordered a 32UC3A3-XPLD.

Hoping for suggestions & advice while I'm waiting for my order to arrive.

I haven't done my own hardware, but if I would, I'd copy the EVK1100 schematics.

Thanks Jkuusama. I'll study in detail.

I don't even know HOW you found the part # for whatever that is ! Nothing comes up on Google ( 4 hits that go nowhere ) . Digikey says it's a dev. board but no 'sheet or pic . If you've never done a PCB for memory, ESPECIALLY sdram, you should get a ready made board with SDRAM on it . Layout can be tricky for memory and the MCU is over 100 pins, if it has EBI I/F . See Analog Devices' EE-326 and EE-126 ( "ABCs of SDRAM" ) Google 'avr32 sdram' and you'll get some docs ., esp. AVR32102 .

Also search here for 'freaks who've posted about EBI .

I got the part# from the order form. I found this while digging in Atmel web-site. Thanks. I'll use a number of designs as reference for my designs.
