Hi folks, I am starting a new project and for this new one I am planning to use the SAMD51 (more specifically the  ATSAMD51P20A) as the main MCU.

 

The problem that I am facing is that I cannot create a project in the way I used to do because the Atmel Studio does not provide any SAMD51 as a possible device(New project -> GCC C ASF Board Project -> Search Device).

I am currently using the Atmel Studio 7.0.129 and have installed the ASF 3.47.0.

 



Is there anything that I am losing?

Thank you in advance.

Regards!
FS.

Have you tried the online Atmel Start?   I think that may be ASF 4.

Atmel start will give you a zip file of the source code that you load into AS7.

We just started using these parts also.   There are no sample projects for ASF3, but there is bunch of sample projects for ASF4.  You just need to go to the Atmel Start web site, select a sample project, download it from the web, and load it in Atmel Studio.  Note that Microchip is trying to move you in the direction of MPlab-X and harmony.

Hi Jim, I will try it now.

 

My only concern about those projects created through high level automatized process is the capability to understand the code and debug.

Additionally I am developing a medical product and for that I will have to meet the ISO-IEC 62304, do you see any compliance problems in using ASF-4?

That is one of my fears: How long will those devices be manufacturer? When we take into consideration that the Atmel SAM line is larger than the PIC32 and the SAMD5x are new devices, then I consider the risk low.

But AS7 is a great tool...

 

Thank you both.
