Topic: Burning Arduino to ATmega32A (Read 5 times) previous topic - next topic

Dear Friends,

I have an USBASP programmer and a couple of ATmega32A(unfortunately this is the most sold controller at my place) lying around. I wish to know if i can burn an Arduino Bootloader onto it to take advantage of using Arduino framework for writing my applications. Because more than AVR, Arduino suits me better for the greater society, ease in learning curve on the programming front (sorry i find Arduino a bit easier than AVR). Also I found a site where they have given the pin mapping of the ATMega32 http://retrointerfacing.com/?p=30.

Can someone help me through this? I do not mind burning my application hex files manually or to discard the Arduino IDE. All i need is a way to figure out running my Arduino framework based programs on my ATmega32 for which I believe the Arduino bootloader has to be burned into before.

Regards,

Ashok Srinivasan.

Go to www.avr-developers.com and download the files for ATMega32.
May need to create a new board type in boards.txt and make an entry in avrdude.conf after that.
IDE 1.0.1 has an updated structure that supports "variants" of microcontrollers. I'm not knowledgeable enough really descibe it better for you.

Firstly, thanks for your time and reply. Got it boss. One more thing to boot up the process, will this version work under 1.0.1 or do I have to use any specific version(ex., in the site you have mentioned 0.20)

Give it a try with 1.0.1, can always go back to -0020 if it doesn't work.

avrdude.conf already has the info for atmega32.
You'll have to make a new boards.txt entry for the device.

Thanks for the link. But the website seems to be old enough. Cant find the proper files. The described link is also dead. Any help on that, please?

Cant find ATmega32A core files in Arduino-extras.zip file.
Any solutions?
Thanks.
