1  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Development / Burning bootloader with a SP12 programmer on: June 18, 2007, 01:14:14 am
Hi,

For another project i had some spare atmega 8-16 pu chips lying around, and i wanted to arduino-fy them.

I tried my adaption of the 'burn' script and came to :

avrdude -p m8 -c sp12 -v -P /dev/parport0 -U lock:w:0xFF:m -U lfuse:w:0xDF:m -U hfuse:w:0xCA:m -U flash:w:ATmegaBOOT.hex -U lock:w:0xCF:m

But, it's not working.... smiley-sad
Can someone point me to my errors? smiley-razz

Most pocketpc's only have 'client' USB not 'host' USB , so you couldn't hook the arduino up to it straight away.

If you are ok in C/C++ you could write a Bluetooth application that just operates on a Bluetooth serial port.
You would need an Arduino BT for that...

Some Pocketpc's do have an exposed serial port that you might use to control an Arduino, you would need level convertors for it , i guess , but i'm not clear on that subject.

Someone cares to fill in the blanks?

FYI
The radios i now have in my possession :

Well i'll check it out someday.
Right now i already ordered everything from conrad.nl which has free shipping smiley-razz

But it's just the parts for the initial tests , so maybe i'll hit spark up for the rest....

Woa nice link.

Sparkfun is a bit out-of-my-continent though smiley
I've read on http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1177745205/0#0 that he only got 1200 baud to work. Maybe you just need to try that?

Anyway you are still able to use hw serial smiley

I'll fill this topic up with what i'm doing when i finally get all my hardware delivered.

You can read out my project on http://lamp.allesiskunst.nl/

Isn't all that Zigbee stuff mad expensive?

The radios I have as target now cost about 8euro an end

Also my 'slave' side just has to receive, it never sends. And the master never receives, it just sends....

Hmm too bad smiley-sad

Ok thanks for the clarification. smiley

Is this possible?

I want to use the USB side of a Arduino NG (ordered , shipment delayed smiley-sad) as communication to a pc, do some processing on the atmel, and send instructions through RF by serial communication to other atmels with RF radios.

Concrete question:

Do I need to do software serial for the RF? Or can i use the rx/tx pins for it, without messing up the USB serial part?
