stk500v2          Atmel STK500, running a version 2.x firmware


You might also need to edit the "usb" option to 'com1' or 'lpt1' (etc).

For example, if you are using the STK500 with a serial cable connected to "COM2", your programmer parameters would be as follows:

Code: Select all
%a stk500 com2 "%f.hex" %c1 %c2 %c3

Hi steve,

The Batch file avrc for calling avrdude contains some hard coded information (AVRISPMKII).

Probably there should be a new one could you post this in reply please?

Hi Koen,

The latest patch should have included the latest batch files, but it didn't. Sorry about that. I will create a new patch file now.

Is it anything like;

Code: Select all
@ SET Fuse1=
@ SET Fuse2=
@ SET Fuse3=

SET AVRDUDEcmd="%~dp0..\AVRDUDEusb\avrdude.exe" -p %1 -c %2 -P %3 -F -u -U flash:w:%4

@ IF NOT "%5"=="-1" SET Fuse1=-U hfuse:w:%5:m

@ IF NOT "%6"=="-1" SET Fuse2=-U lfuse:w:%6:m

@ IF NOT "%7"=="-1" SET Fuse3=-U efuse:w:%7:m

%AVRDUDEcmd% %Fuse1% %Fuse2% %Fuse3%

BTW. It is unwise to write fuse settings everytime the devices is reprogrammed. The Fuses have a live expectancy of about 1000 cycles as opposed to the enhanced Flash with a 100.000 cycle endurance.

Thanks for the info, Koen.

We'll do this another way - perhaps with a "Send..." button on the configuration screen.

Hi again Steve,

I'm still testing te interface with AVRDUDE, by now i just use;
Code: Select all
@SET AVRDUDEcmd="C:\Program Files\Matrix Multimedia\Flowcode_AVR\Tools\AVRDUDEusb\avrdude.exe" -p %1 -c %2 -P %3 -F -e -U flash:w:%4:a -U flash:v:%4:a
%AVRDUDEcmd%


The program is called with;

Code: Select all
%a butterfly COM1 "%f.hex"


Strange thing is that AVRDUDE still tries to write my fusesettings, wich is not supported by the butterfly bootloader.

Another mishap is; I have to disable the device check "-F" because of contradicting device codes in the configuration file for AVRDUDE.

Code: Select all
C:\Documents and Settings\Koen Kempeneers\Mijn Documenten\Flowcode_AVR>"C:\Program Files\Matrix Multimedia\Flowcode_AVR\Tools\AVRDUDEusb\avrdude.exe" -p m8 -c butterfly -P COM1 -F -e -U flash:w:"SimpleLed.hex":a -U flash:v:"SimpleLed.hex":a

BTW. Flowcode itself is performing as it's supposed to.

Great work!

Hi Steve,

The new release stills tries to read fusedata when programming, that is not supported by most bootloaders.

Code: Select all
C:\Documents and Settings\Koen Kempeneers\Mijn Documenten\Flowcode_AVR>"C:\PROGRA~1\MATRIX~1\FLOWCO~2\Tools\MX_bats\..\AVRDUDEusb\avrdude.exe" -p m8 -P COM1 -c butterfly -U flash:w:"SimpleLed.hex"

So all is well there... Just make sure the bootloader based programmers do not attempt to read the fuses.

Hi Koen,

The solution to this problem is to modify the flash programming command line in 'tools\MX_bats\avrc.bat'. Adding the -u switch prevents the fuses from being read.

Example:

:ProgFlash
@SET AVRDUDEcmd="%~dp0..\AVRDUDEusb\avrdude.exe" -p %1 -P %3 -c %2 -u -U flash:w:%4
@GOTO Send

The -u switch is already present in the fuse programming command line in this .bat file.
