Topic: Burning bootloader onto ATMEGA1284P: Invalid device signature. (Read 208 times) previous topic - next topic

Hello Arduino-fellows,

I am trying to burn bootloader onto a atmega1284p and followed this tutorial:
http://www.technoblogy.com/show?19OV#bootloader
I am using the board files of Christinsen:
https://github.com/JChristensen/mighty-1284p/tree/v1.6.3

Please have a look at the attached images for the connections. I have checked those multiple times but I am still getting following error:
Code: [Select]
avrdude: Yikes!  Invalid device signature.
         Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
         this check.

Error while burning bootloader.


I have also loaded the ArduinoISP to the Arduino Uno, which I am using as a programmer and then switched to Arduino as ISP as Programmer.

Thank you for your help!

I still have not solved it. Do you think it is a wiring problem, which I can hardly believe after checking many times or shall I better use another bootloader?

1. MCU circuit is missing on the picture.
2. Send your complete log include the command.

Here is a picture:

BTW: More detailed log can be switched on in preferences.
It can be wiring problem. However, there is also frequent issue with programmer type and in this case the 10uF capacitor between RESET and GND on programmer uno will help.

Try, apologies! I haven't turned the verbose output on since my new installation.
I receive the following error:
I will now also try the capacitor, isn't 10µF a bit high?

avrdude done.  Thank you.

Error while burning bootloader.

You definitely need not the capacitor (Using Programmer: stk500v1).
It could more in your wiring. Show your setup to us. Do you have minimal circuit for 1284P? Oscillator, power with decoupling and reset.

Thank you a lot. I have managed to burn bootloader once, then tried to upload a sketch using an FTDI converter (not the Arduino UNO anymore). I could not upload the sketch and I could also not burn bootloader afterwards anymore.

I have uploaded the images for the circuit here:
https://ibb.co/v3f7MyC
https://ibb.co/1802nDN

As well as in the attached .pdf

Ok, pictures are bit better. Your circuit is not absolutely clear, though.
In situation when it is not working correctly, it is better to follow all rules for minimal circuit.
1. Power: decoupling capacitors .1uF, one for each power pin as close as possible. All VCC and GND must be connected (looks like they are).
2. Clock source: (there is - hopefully it is working) Arduino requires external because its setting (for beginning at least).
3. RESET: Pull up 10kOhm (missing) and it is good to use .1uF separation capacitor for the reset signal, because sometimes pulse can prolong the reset state of the target which miss the start of communication.
There is plenty schematics on the forum or internet, even they are for different type of ATmega, they can be used for each one.


About your log from post #4:
1. It is good to grab it include the command with avrdude...
2. Complete zero response says that there is no connection to the target so check your wiring again. 
3. Sometimes it is good to see byte transfer - do a more detailed log. If it is not possible from IDE, use avrdude command from the log directly in CMD with -vvvv. For circuit testing, I would recommend to go from CMD without -U parameter (no writes, just read).

Go ahead.

Thank you budvar for your help! It works now, hard to believe but there was a connection problem with the breadboard :)....
