The STK200-DRAGON kit includes the STK200 AVR development board and AVR-DRAGON in-circuit debugger & programmer.
This kit allows debugging and programming of almost all AVR devices in 8-, 20-, 28- and 40-pin DIP. It comes with an ATmega16, and the AVR Dragon in-circuit programmer/emulator that is compatible with both AVR Studio 4 and AVR Studio 5. Complete instructions, sample code and books are included on CD.
The STK200 is specifically for DIP AVR microcontrollers. If you need to work with high-pincount devices, you should get the STK300-DRAGON kit instead. The STK300-DRAGON supports 64-pin AVR microcontrollers via plug-in header boards (it comes with an ATmega128L).
AVR Development Kit Features
- AVR Dragon ICE, complete with leads, adapters and instructions
- Comes with AVR Studio 4 AVR Development Environment
- Supported by new Atmel Studio 6, available as free download
- STK200 AVR Development Board with DIP sockets for 8-, 20-, 28-, and 40-pin AVR microcontrollers
- STK200 has UART, LED, switches, ADC, LCD and keypad interfaces
- Includes CD books on AVR and Embedded C programming
- Sample code, AVR datasheets and instructions
- AVR Dragon can power STK200 board; no extra power supply needed
- Kit comes with ATmega16 MCU
- Supports Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 (32- and 64-bit)
AVR Studio 4 is a very good development environment, and comes with the WinAVR C Compiler plugin to make working in C really easy. The kit has instructions for connecting hardware and running it from AVR Studio. The hardware connections are the same for AVR Studio 5, and it has full instructions for both AVR Studio 4 and AVR Studio 5.
The Get Going with AVR book and the Embedded C book cover the basics of the AVR and how to write code in assembly language or C. The sample code supplied covers all the major concepts, including UART, LCD and keypads. Manuals, schematics and instruction guides are also included in the kit.
- AVR-DRAGON emulator and programmer tool
- ISP, JTAG, DebugWire and power leads
- USB cable
- STK200 board with ATmega8515
- Software CD with datasheets, AVR Studio, C Compiler, books, sample code, instructions, schematics and user documentation
See the options below for different AVR microcontrollers that can be installed on the STK200 board. Just be sure not to have more than one microcontroller installed at a time, e.g., if you install a chip into the 40-pin socket, remove the chip that's in the 28-pin socket.
