The MEGA-1284P Xplainedevaluation kit is a hardware platform for evaluating the ATmega1284Pmicrocontrollers. The MEGA-1284P Xplained contain one QTouch button sensor, three mechanical buttons, four LEDs, 3 analog sensors, and a UART to USB bridge. The AVR Xplained expansion headers provide easy access to analog and digital I/O pins. The board is powered by the USB cable and equipped with the standard 10-pin JTAG header that connects to the full range of AVR debuggers.

NOTE: The MEGA-1284P Xplained can be used to evaluate the ATmega164/324/644/1284microcontrollers and the A, P and PA versions of these devices. These devices share thesame peripherals, and differ only in memory size electrical characteristics such as power consumption. The peripherals are in general functionally compatible with other megaAVR devices, and the MEGA-1284P Xplained can thus be used as a general evaluation platform for other megaAVRs as well. Alternatively the STK600 can be used if specific devices need to be evaluated.

The Secure AVR® BLE IoT Node incorporates an ATtiny1617 microcontroller, a fully-certified RN4871 Bluetooth® 4.2 Low Energy module, an ATECC508A CryptoAuthentication device and a 3-axis accelerometer with temperature sensor to demonstrate a complete solution for a typical IoT end node. The board is powered by USB or CR2032 coin cell via a jumper.

It is supported by Atmel START and Atmel Studio Integrated Development Platform (IDE) and comes with full documentation for the  software and hardware to significantly reduce design complexity and the time-to-market.

The application is available on both iOS® and Android™ operating systems. The iOS application, called AVR BLE Node, can be downloaded from the App Store. The Android application, called Secured AVR BLE IoT Node, can be downloaded from Google Play.

In addition to the driver libraries, there are a number of demonstration projects available to provide examples of common usage of sensor systems, and accelerate your initial development.

Demonstration projects illustrate how to bring together the sensor API, libraries, board support modules, ASF drivers, and configuration constants to build standalone applications. The following provide examples of available projects, the compete list of available projects is available through the AVR Studio.

The Windows PC Data Visualizer application provides a graphical, real-time display of data sent from a microcontroller board via a USB connection. The ADV tool uses special configuration data sent from the target system to define multiple data streams, each with an oscilloscope-like display of data values. The captured data may also be saved to a standard comma-separated-value file for export and subsequent analysis.

The Data Visualizer (ADV) application is available for download below. Additional information is available in the Application Note, AVR4017: Data Visualizer Application.
