Got my board about 95% done. Need to get the power connector and the fuse. Don't quite have enough for another Digikey order yet... Ordered a few pieces(crystal) from DipMicro - I really hate PayPal, but it seems the order went through in spite of Paypal...


Anybody got any suggestions as to bootloader and what files I will need for the Arduino IDE? Of course I will then have to figure out how to do stuff with AVRStudio4.

Use maniacbug's setup for Bobuino.
Can always power via the Power header while you wait for parts.
Doesn't help with sketch downloand I guess.

I tried to find the BOM for this board in the posts and I came up blank.

Has a BOM been generated?  If it exists does can someone post a link?

Thanks

I didn't create one. All parts are common, or indicated on the schematic (that's what I intended to do, anyway.)
Guess I should take the eagle BOM created from the schematic and fill in some part numbers to make it easier.

Since one has not been created don't worry, I can get it off of Eagle.  I just thought if one was generated it would easy to download it.

Thanks

Did you test it? The crystal seems to have a dent.

1284p-AU.
Crystal is from a flight controller board I designed, built flew and crashed, it was working fine just before switching onto the ProMighty I'll have more info tomorrow.

You could try the hack where you remove the AVR chip from the duemilanove and use its serial driver to connect to the 1284...



Cant seem to get it to work with duemilanoves serial driver.
Connected Rx, Tx, Reset pins of 2 boards together. Cant seem upload to 1284P via the other board's serial driver :(

How did you put a bootloader on the '1284?

"Connected Rx, Tx, Reset pins of 2 boards together. "
Grounds are connected also?
'328 is removed during this so it is not interfering?

Bootloaded with the clone board itself. Arduino as ISP tutorial. :)

Yes. I removed the 328 from the board while uploading the program via the clone and Yes I have connected it to common power supplies (Vcc and Gnd are same in both boards) too...

The board I originally made must have developed a fault as I just couldn't upload a sketch although it would upload boot loader via studio using icsp header. Anyway I had designed a new board but not got round to building it. It has the crystal very close plus I've stuck a DS1307 RTC on the board. Anyway built new board, stuck chip in, selected upload boot loader which it did via IDE then uploaded sketch which worked perfectly first time. Built a second board for mmcpix and that one works perfectly too. No idea what was wrong with the old board, still can't find anything and it DID work.

Anyway just finished a 1284p -au into 328p-pu board for those times when you just wish atmel had made a 648p-pu or even a 1288p-pu what's wrong with them :)

Okay, I created a PL for the '1284 duemilanove style board.
Left the USB/Serial adapter & wallwart as optional components.
Prices are from Dipmicro.com, some from Digikey or as noted.
Most are priced with 1-lot prices, which can drop a lot with qty purchases, even the bare board itself.

I've got 3 ProMightys assembled and ready to program.  :D
I have a USBAP from Ebay with a Mega8 inboard, has anyone had luck with this programmer? if so what method was used? Thanks.
