I bought this board because it makes a perfect fit with Studio7. It is Plug and Play.
A.F.A.I.K. the mEDBG at the Xplained Mini can also be used to program other chips.
Studio is all C these days. In the past I had little success to learn C, but it is almost a must now.
ATtiny817 Xplained Mini is so nice integrated in Studio7, it cannot be easier to learn about the ATtiny817 and C.

On the other hand: I would like to use ATtiny817 with Bascom.
What I am interested in is the interrupt priority feature of ATtiny817. In my project I need the ADC to have allways first priority, while there is also need for serial control communication.
I think it is easy to program with Studio7 the .hex file that is generated with bascom.


However, there is no .dat file for ATtiny817 in Bascom. I am afraid I have to wait for the next Bascom version.
I hope someone here can give a suitable .dat file for it...

If not: from what I heard it has a lot in common with Xmega, is it feasable to adapt some Xmega .dat? Or does ATtiny817 require changes in Bascom compiler?

(BASCOM-AVR version : 2.0.8.1 )

Arrow is offering these dev kits for free,

the event system looks very similiar to an xmega and they are less than $1 US dollar, is there any plans to support this ?

yes there are plans but like you noticed, it is more a tiny xmega, than a new tiny.
it also uses yes another programming protocol.
while the dat files are ready it will not help much since a lot of other changes are required for these chips.

we do not give a release date. but i would get a free kit. i had to pay for mine Sad

Thanks, the more I've read about the IC, the more it looks like a merge between an avr, xmega, and a PIC with it's 8 bit DAC
