Win a Microchip ATmega328PB development suite bundle
15 November 2017, News

Dataweek and Microchip Technology are offering a chance to win an ATmega328PB development suite bundle. The ATmega328PB is a low-power CMOS 8-bit microcontroller (MCU) based on the AVR enhanced RISC architecture. By executing powerful instructions in a single clock cycle, it achieves throughputs close to 1 MIPS per MHz.

The MCU is supported with a full suite of program and system development tools and this bundle includes an ATmega328PB Xplained Mini evaluation kit, an ATATMEL-ICE development tool and an ATPOWERDEBUGGER power debugger kit.

The ATmega328PB Xplained Mini evaluation kit is a hardware platform for evaluating the ATmega328PB microcontroller. It comes with a fully integrated debugger that provides seamless integration with Atmel Studio. The kit provides access to the features of the ATmega328PB MCU enabling easy integration of the device into a custom design. The kit features two capacitive buttons for easy evaluation of the integrated QTouch peripheral touch controller (PTC).

The Atmel-ICE is a development tool for debugging and programming ARM Cortex-M based SAM and AVR microcontrollers with on-chip debug capability. It offers programming and on-chip debugging of all AVR 32-bit MCUs on both JTAG and aWire interfaces, programming and on-chip debugging of all AVR XMEGA family devices on both JTAG and PDI 2-wire interfaces, JTAG and SPI programming and debugging of all AVR 8-bit MCUs with OCD support on either JTAG or debugWIRE interfaces, programming and debugging of all SAM ARM Cortex-M based MCUs on both SWD and JTAG interfaces, and programming of all tinyAVR 8-bit MCUs with support for the TPI interface.

The Power Debugger kit is a tool for debugging and programming AVR microcontrollers using UPDI, JTAG, PDI, debugWIRE, aWire , TPI or SPI target interfaces and ARM Cortex-M based SAM microcontrollers using JTAG or SWD target interfaces. In addition, the Power Debugger has two independent current sensing channels for measuring and optimising the power consumption of a design. It also includes a CDC virtual COM port interface as well as Data Gateway Interface channels for streaming application data to the host computer from an SPI, USART, TWI or GPIO source. The Power Debugger is a CMSIS-DAP compatible debugger which works with Studio 7.0 or later, or other frontend software capable of connecting to a generic CMSIS-DAP unit. It streams power measurements and application debug data to Data Visualizer for real-time analysis.
