The JM-DB-AT90 is a development board for the AT90USB162 microcontroller in a convenient DIL-40 sized package. The AT90USB162 contains 16 KB of flash, 512 B of RAM, 512 B EEPROM, 22 programmable IO pins, and a USB device controller. With the preinstalled, open-source bootloader, the Atmega32U2 can be programmed over USB. Or, an ISP header can be used to program via an external programmer. An ATmega32U2 development board, with an identical PCB and components, is also available on the shop page (JM-DB-U2).
The board has many power supply configurations by utilizing solder jumpers. It can be powered by USB or by an external supply. Both 5V or 3.3V are supported. One button, one LED, and two PWM filters are provided. They can be disconnected by desoldering solder jumpers if desired. All IO pins are routed to headers. The supplied 16MHz crystal can also be desoldered, allowing use of an external clock source. The installed demo program and downloadable source code can be used to get started. It demonstrates the use of a CDC-class USB device, and is controlled using a terminal emulator.
All firmware installed is open-source under the MIT license (similar to BSD). Source code is available on the website. The code utilizes the LUFA USB library by Dean Camera. If you would like to develop a USB application that uses drivers other than the default CDC ACM class (like HID), then check out his website at http://www.fourwalledcubicle.com/. The source code includes only the USB driver directory of his LUFA project. The LUFA project includes examples using many different device classes (like storage, sound, MIDI, HID, etc). He has both high-level and low-level examples, making it relatively easy to progressively learn.

User Guide (1MB)
1) Download and install Atmel's FLIP utility from http://www.atmel.com/dyn/products/tools_card.asp?tool_id=3886.
2) If running Windows Vista or Windows 7 64-bit, be sure to boot using f8 to allow installation of signed drivers. Alternatively, you may obtain signed drivers from here: Download
3) Plug in the board while firmly holding down the button. The LED will flash smoothly. This indicates that the bootloader is running.
4) Windows will detect the bootloader. Point the installer to the USB subdirectory of the FLIP installation directory (or the directory containing the downloaded signed drivers).
5) Now that the driver is installed, run FLIP. Use it to program the flash with your hex file.
6) To run your hex file, unplug the device, then plug it back in without holding down the button.
JM_DB_AT90.hex Revision 100915
This file contains the demo program. It uses an ansi terminal emulator. Hyperterm on Windows XP, and minicom on Linux have been tested. Please consult the User Guide for instructions. This firmware can be loaded using Atmel's FLIP utility, downloadable from Atmel's website, or by DFU-Programmer (latest SVN).

This hex file contains much code from the LUFA project, Copyright (c) 2009-2010, Dean Camera.
The pre-installed DFU bootloader was also written by Dean Camera.
Please see his website at http://www.fourwalledcubicle.com/ for more information.
His code will also allow you to use different device classes (like mass storage, HID, audio, etc.).

An .inf file is required for the demo program if running Windows. The demo makes use of the CDC-ACM device (virtual COM port). This file supports Windows 2000, XP, Vista (32 and 64 bit) and Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit). Linux does not require a download (drivers should already be installed).
The DFU programmer mode also requires a driver. This driver is included with FLIP (inside the USB folder of the program's directory). If using Windows Vista 64-bit or Windows 7 64-bit, be sure to boot using f8 to allow installation of unsigned drivers. Alternatively, signed drivers may be obtained from here: Download
