ISPnano - Atmel XMEGA AVR PDI Interface Device Library

 
 
 

The 'XMEGA PDI' Device Library supports In-System Programming (ISP) of the Atmel XMEGA AVR microcontroller family via the 2-wire PDI (Programming Debug Interface). This solution is aimed at high throughput production users who require the fastest possible programming of the on-chip FLASH memory of any XMEGA AVR microcontroller.

Main features

  • High-speed In-System Programming (ISP) support of Atmel XMEGA AVR microcontrollers via the 2-wire PDI (Programming Debug Interface) 
  • Supports programming the on-chip FLASH, EEPROM, Fuse and Lock Bits of  XMEGA AVR microcontrollers
  • Uses the proprietary Atmel 2-wire PDI (Programming Debug Interface)  to program the target device
  • Very high-speed programming due to local data storage and optimised programming algorithms
  • Optimised line driver circuit for XMEGA DATA line to allow bi-directional communications
  • Programmers can be used in "Standalone Mode" (no PC) - Up to 64 x XMEGA 'Programming Projects' can be stored inside an ISPnano programmer
  • Supports high-speed program / verify of the XMEGA on-chip FLASH and EEPROM in a singe operation.
  • Optimised Erase operation supports independent erasing of Application Section, Application Table and Boot Section
  • Supports programming of non volatle Fuse Bits
  • Supports programming of the "Security Fuses" (Lock Bits) to protect code from being read out

XMEGA Programming Interface Overview

A graphical overview of the ‘PDI’ and ‘JTAG’ interfaces is shown in the diagram above.

XMEGA PDI - ISP Connections

The Program and Debug Interface (PDI) is a 2-wire interface which allows an XMEGA microcontroller to be programmed using an external programmer. The pins required for programming via the PDI interface are detailed in the table below.
