Hi All,

I am just taking a look at A32S, I realise it is very new.

What target can I setup to enable me to debug code without a physical target? At the moment, I've been following the getting started help files, but it doesn't seem to pan out.

Is anyone else successfully debugging an AVR32 application without a physical target?

Hi,

there is no AVR32 simulator to be used with GDB, so your only option so far is to purchase a kit that matches your needs.

What would you like to be able to do without a physical target?

I would like to test some things like IO speed, and generally play around with it to compare it against ARM cores.

An up and coming project will require good data throughput speeds across an ethernet phy. It would be good to simulate some code in a simulator before getting any hardware. We'd be able to test a lot of stuff before we commit to some hardware.

Having said that, I see that Atmel have a dev kit out for around $70 which features pretty much everything the AVR32 can do.

Thanks
