I am a newbie to microcontroller programming and seek your
advice. I have a old and used but working ATMEGA32L processor board
designed for some application. And I have a JTAG ICE from Atmel. I was
given this board to learn about microcontroller.
After searching the web, I found this STK500 which claims
to be the tool for beginners. And I bought a book "embedded C
programming and atmel avr" which gives some programs with blinking
My question: Being an absolute beginner to the world of
embedded programming, should I go and buy the STK500 kit or can I
understand with the JTAG ICE and the board I am having (it doesn't
have any LEDs but I do have schematic of the board).
Please advice what is good for a beginner so that I don't
get frustrated but more interested in the beginning, and I can save
time by learning towards right direction.
