The Microchip STK600 kit is a starter kit and development system for the 8-bit and 32-bit AVR microcontrollers. The kit gives designers a quick start to develop code on the AVR, with advanced features for prototyping and testing new designs.
The system consists of a generic socketcard, on which the AVR device is inserted, and a device specific signal routing card, which routes the signals from the socket pins to the different functions on the STK600 main board dependant on the device. This design simplifies hardware setup when switching from one AVR device to another.
The kit offers access to all device pins, and several useful hardware functions such as pushbuttons, LEDs, and dataflash to create a complete system for prototyping and testing new designs. Free Atmel Studio IDE lets designers write and compile firmware in either assembly or C language and download the code to the target AVR device.
The board also has adjustable voltage supply and adjustable clock to the target AVR device. The VCC level and clock frequency can be adjusted on the fly from Atmel Studio, giving designers the ability to test the performance at different voltage levels and clock frequencies with just the click of a button.
