I'm still here

Figured I'd post something, it's been a while.

Still working on the EVK1104 board, if anyone tells you it's easy to switch from AVR 8bit to AVR32 bit processors they are lying!

I'm finaly getting the hang of the internals of the processor. It takes alot of read of spec sheets and reading the framework code to get a grasp of things.

The current dev is going to use the SD card slot for MassStorage, the LCD for display and the QTouch buttons for input. So far I have the MassStorage portion of the CD Emulator and some menu commands working. Within a couple of days I'll have the CD emulation code working.


  1. Just ordered this same board (because of the USB OTG) and stumbled on your blog. It would be great if you'd elaborate a little on the hurdles you had to overcome with the UC3A (code fragments, pcb (altium?)footprints, ...).

    Will be visiting again.

  2. Sorry for the slow reply, your the first comment. not used to looking for comments! The evk1104 board is an awsome board. alot of options, just too much to deal with right off the bat. The framework is great and the demos work without flaw. But it's just a lot of new cpu features that I have never dealt with. A few weeks later and I'm now right at home.

  3. This thing is big! I wish I had your knowledge so I can make my own:) It will save me days if not years in my lifetime:))

  4. I'm thinking of making a stand alone board with cpu,usb,main crytals.. the basic and add pins to plug into a breadboard for i/o. that way it's not almost $200 to get started.
