Re: Not able to program a MEGA 2560 R3

I did get the add on for the mega. When d/l to the board, with nothing connected, the message is "avrdude.exe: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude.exe: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00" I have seen this before, but do not remember how to resolve it. ...

Re: Not able to program a MEGA 2560 R3

Thanks for explicit instructions. They worked. But I am still getting the message "You do not have a valid license to perform this action."
I am wondering which chip set works with the MEGA. I do the UNO all of the time. I'll explore more.

Re: making hex file un readable

The following link shows how to use Atmel Studio to set lock bits. It points out that the only way to undo the lock bit is to erase the device. The bootloader is erased, so that has to be reloaded.

It would be nice if within Flowcode ver 9 there is a way to prevent copying the hex file by setting bits.

Software UART Data Lines

I successfully wrote a program using 4 software UARTs. Thank you Matrix. But when I open it, the connections for Tx and Rx
change to a default $PortD.0 and $PortD.1, and I have to re enter the correct lines. Not a biggie, but a nusiance.

RS232 implemented as hardware or software

I have some Lithium cell boards that report the cell voltage and temperature to an UNO. A pack of 8 cells. The cell board voltage is being reported correctly when I run a hardware OR a software RS232. Since the UNO has only one hardware RS232, additional UART communication needs to be software based...
