The XGS AVR 8-Bit is the ultimate fusion of art and science. Developed to be a very competitive entry/midrange development kit for the Atmel ATmega644 AVR processor with 64K FLASH, 4K SRAM, and running at 28+ MIPs. The kit was designed with the philosophy that you don't want to waste time trying to figure things out. This kit takes you step by step, saving you time, so you can learn quickly and have fun doing it!
The XGS AVR 8-Bit Development Kit is based on Atmel's ATmega644 AVR processor and is a highly integrated development kit for exploring the Mega AVR processors in a fun and engaging way! If you're interested in AVR processors and want to learn more or just want to learn about microcontrollers in general this is a great way to do it. Designed for students, engineers, and professionals, the XGS AVR 8-Bit uses graphics, games, and media application to explore and learn about the very powerful ATmega644 AVR processor (and in general the entire Mega AVR line of processors in the process). The kit comes with everything you need to get up and running in moments, no additional purchases are necessary -- everything is "in the box."
Also included in the kit is the printed book
Inside the XGS AVR 8-Bit
. This enormous user manual and programming guide takes you from opening the box, installing the tool chain, to developing applications yourself in no time! The book begins with discussions of the hardware of the XGS AVR 8-bit for those more technically minded, then the book traverses the many APIs and libraries we have developed for you to program the XGS AVR 8-Bit yourself. All libraries are written in easy to understand C/C++ with ASM drivers for heavy lifting like graphics and I/O. Fear not though, there are numerous examples and demos that show how to use the XGS AVR 8-Bit to its fullest potential included graphics, sound, games, keyboard, SD interface, serial communications, and much more.
And if you want to make games with it, it's no secret that these XGS systems are designed with that in mind and the XGS AVR 8-Bit is no exception! It's the perfect little development platform to create 8-bit games that you can put together in a matter of hours to days with our APIs and examples.
