DIP-CORE = pure MCU ready for your projects

Finally, it is possible to achieve greater functionality with a simpler hardware design! DIP-CORE provides you with everything you can imagine and even more in standard DIP16 package. Perfect for rapid prototyping and large production. This includes:
High Performance, Low Power AVR® 8-Bit Microcontroller (ATmega128RFR2) with Advanced Hardware assisted Reduced Power Consumption.

- JTAGICE3 (IEEE std. 1149.1 compliant) powerful development tool for professional programming and on-chip debugging.
- ZigBee® / IEEE 802.15.4-2011/2006/2003™ – Full and Reduced Function Device with General Purpose 2.4GHz ISM Band Transceiver.
- Full set of interfaces: Master/Slave SPI Serial Interface; Two Programmable Serial USART; 2-wire Serial Interface (TWI/I2C); 10-bit, 330 KSamples/s ADC; Analog Comparator; On-chip Temperature Sensor;
- UART over FTDI USB with 5V power supply. Allows you to power your SOC directly from USB cable. Compatible with Arduino bootloader.
- Integrated OLED module with a high-contrast monochrome display.
- Full support for onboard Micro SD card (including FAT file system).

Pure Atmel AVR core with all peripheral hardware (OLED display, SD card, ZigBee etc.) ready to take control over your hardware. It must be programmed with JTAG (JATGICE3 recommended). I am using Atmel Studio for development, and IMHO this the best option. There is no bootloader in DIP-CORE.
It is available right now. Do you want to have one? Please contact me through contact page on this website.

This is DIP-CORE with Arduino bootloader. You can write your programs in Arduino IDE.
I am working hard evenings and weekends to make it happen soon. If you have your own DIP-Core than you can help me.

You can develop your code in Atmel Studio or any other IDE of your choice, write it on SD card and DIP-BOOT will execute it. The code must be compiled and converted to BIN format. You do not need any debuggers or cables. Really easy to use on the go. There is no limit on complexity of your code. In addition, there is no need to keep SD card inserted into the controller. DIP-BOOT will write your firmware to EEPROM and next time, if SD card is not present, your program will be executed directly from memory.
This device can be available quite soon. You can help me with this.

As easy as it can be – open notepad, write your firmware in BASIC, save it to SD card, insert into DIP, have fun! No need to have programmers, debuggers, cables, compilers, IDE software. BASIC code can be written with any text editor including one on your smartphone.
