Dave programs a PIC 24F chip on his uCalc with the new official AVR Dragon firmware.
Part of the new Microchip-Atmel tool collaboration agreement.
Also, news on the new PICkit 4 which will have official support for all Atmel parts.

I'd really like if this was true!

The problem is, Atmel isn't even able to support all their programming standards in one product; if Microchip would achieve this, i'd say - hats off!

Thanks Dave, ymmd!

It doesn't work under GNU/Linux. I flashed AVR Dragon with the new firmware but MplabX has issues. Works under Win7 though.

Alexander.

How did you do it on Windows 7?
It did not run for me on Win7. Atmel support told me to try Windows 8, which i did (in a VM), and it is now working fine...

I don't know it, worked out of the box for me. Try to run it as admin or with WinXp compatibility mode.

Even with the new firmware I still can't get my AVR dragon to work with my AS/400. Don't Atmel care about their customers?

I'm looking forward to the PICKit 4. The AVR programming is nice and all, but I'm personally looking forward to finally getting brighter LEDs. For those of us who work in dark rooms, this is a big deal. I'm just worried that I might wear out the flash memory on the PIC chip if I repeatedly reprogram the chip so I can get the increased illumination from the status LED.

Totally feel like a dumbass.  Forgot what day it was.  If you had provided links on the video page, I would have never seen the comments about the links being missing...and I might have been confused for several more hours.

Nice job.
