Hi All,

I was wondering what the programming options are for the xmega on the xplain board? I read the documentation on Atmel's site and they said "(Programming of the ATxmega128A1 through the USB bootloader is expected to be available late Q2 2009)." Which has come and gone. Is it now possible to program the xmega128A1 through USB? If so how? Is there documentation somewhere?

Also any idea if this supported in avrdude?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sam

It is now but no thanks to Atmel. Dean Camera (abcminiuser) has managed to deliver what Atmel could not (PDI programming of the 128A1 via the US1287). Search for threads mentioning Xplain, USB, PDI and with author=abcminiuser and you'll find it.

Thanks! I notice that he has both a github and googlecode repository. Is one more current than other?

I provide download packages at defined intervals, which contain semi-current code (with a known age for general consumption). I also provide the two repositories for the absolute up-to-date source code from the project.

Generally they are both entirely equivalent to one another, however at times the SVN mirror may be a few hours ahead of the Git mirror, as I have to use a separate machine to perform the SVN-to-Git mirroring.
