Xplained

The kit contains complete hardware for evaluating the highly accurate analog functionality of AVR devices and demonstrating how to interface external memories. The kit includes 8MB SDRAM and 8MB DataFlash connected to the ATxmega128A1, and eight push buttons and eight LEDs for user interaction. The USB interface is a communication gateway between the ATxmega128A1 USB COM port and power source. The ADC can be used to read a temperature sensor and potentiometer, and the DAC can be used to generate sound on a mono speaker. Drivers for ATxmega128A1 peripheral modules are availablein the XMEGA application notes section.

NOTE:
The AVR Xplain kit is only available as a bundle consisting of AVR Xplain, Display Xplained and QTouch Xplained.

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 mXT143E Xplained is an add-on board for the Xplained evaluation and demonstration kits. The board contains a 2.8 LCD display with ATmXT143E capacitive touch screen controller, ITO sensor, and an SD card interface.

This kit requires an Xplained MCU board, sold separately.

The capacitive touch module used in this kit is the TM2800 manufactured by Precision Design Associates Inc. They sell the module without Xplained add-on board adapter as an off the shelves LCD touch screen module ready for integration into your own design.

The SAMA5D3 Xplained is a fast prototyping and evaluation platform for microprocessor-based design. The board comes with a rich set of ready to use connectivity and storage peripherals and expansion headers for easy customization. A Linux distribution and software package gets you evaluating fast. A USB device connector can be used to power the board as well as programming and debugging it.

The UC3-A3 Xplained evaluation kit is a hardware platform for evaluating the AT32UC3A3256 microcontroller. The kit offers a range of features that enable the AVR UC3 user to get started using AVR UC3 peripherals right away and understand how to integrate the AVR UC3 device in their own design.

NOTE: The UC3-A3 Xplainedis suited for evaluation ofboth UC3A3 and UC3A4 microcontrollers. The two series share the same peripherals, except that the UC3A3 features a External Bus Interface (EBI) while the UC3A4 does not.
The AES peripheral of the UC3A3S/A4S and the Audio peripheralof the UC3A3AUare not supported by the device on this board. To evaluate these features please use the EVK1104S and EVK1104AU respectively.?

The UC3-L0 Xplained evaluation kit is a hardware platform for evaluating the AT32UC3L064 microcontroller. The kit offers a range of features that enable the AVR UC3 user to get started using AVR UC3 peripherals right away and understand how to integrate the AVR UC3 device in their own design.

NOTE: The UC3-L0 Xplained is suited for evaluation of both UC3L0 and UC3L4 microcontrollers. The two series share the same peripherals, except that the UC3L4 features a USB Full-speed USB Devicemodule while the UC3L0 does not.

The XMEGA-A1 Xplained evaluation kit is a hardware platform for evaluating the ATxmega128A1 microcontroller. The kit offers a range of features that enable the AVR XMEGA user to get started using AVR XMEGA peripherals right away and understand how to integrate the AVR XMEGA device in their own design.

NOTE: The XMEGA-A1 Xplained can be used to evaluate the XMEGA A1/A3/A4 and A1U/A3U/A4U devices. The devices shares the same peripherals, but the A1, A3 and A4 devices has different pin count and hence different number of each peripherals. The difference betweenA and AU devices is that AU features a USB Full-speed Device module. This USB module can be evaluated using STK600 or the XMEGA-A3BU Xplained.

The AVR Xplained kits are great platforms for early evaluation of the capabilities offered by the AVR microcontrollers. The XMEGA-A3BU Xplained contain one QTouch button sensor, three mechanical buttons, two LEDs, 3 analog sensors, a USB port, battery backup system and a 128x32 pixel FSTN LCD display.

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 XMEGA-A3BU Xplained can be used to evaluate the XMEGA A1/A3/A4 and A1U/A3U/A4U devices. The devices shares the same peripherals, but the A1, A3 and A4 devices has different pin count and hence different number of each peripherals. The A3BU devices featuresBattery Back-up for the RTC peripheral, which the other devices does not. The XMEGA A1 devices features an External Bus Interface (EBI)which the A3BU devices does not. To evaluate the EBI it is recommended to use the XMEGA-A1 Xplained.

The XMEGA-B1 Xplained evaluation kit is a hardware platform for evaluating the ATxmega128B1 microcontroller. The kit offers a range of features that enable the AVR XMEGA user to get started using AVR XMEGA peripherals right away and understand how to integrate the AVR XMEGA device in their own design.
