I know we bag Atmel when things don't go our way or we don't like something.
This time I wish to express my gratitude for providing means to read fuses and lockbits from within the program area.
As I'm finally getting around at sending out some boards with Mega164p and I need to make sure that certain fuses are set correctly (ie WDTON, JTAGEN off etc.) it's great that I can get the program to check it's own fuse setting (and lockbits) to make sure that things are what they shoud be.
If not, then it will become as stubborn as a mule and refuse to work!! :-) (with indication of problem areas)
So Atmelians, great feature, pat on the shoulder and buy yourselves a drink or 2 at the company's expenses :wink:
ps and Mr CirMicro the programmer seems to work well finally. Maybe still needs some twigging but it is now usable. Tomorrow will be the great smoke test, 50 boards to program.
