XGS AVR 8-BIT AND
XGS PIC 16-BIT
AVR eight-bit is based
on the Atmel
is a highly
integrated development kit for
exploring the Mega AVR processors
in a fun and engaging way.
On the other hand, the XGS AVR
eight-bit is designed to be a serious
AVR development kit for schools,
students, engineers, and anyone
interested in learning AVR
programming. Clocked at over 28
MIPS, the XGS AVR eight-bit is a
powerful development board. The
system has the following features:
• AVR644 processor with 64K Flash/
4K SRAM running at over 28 MIPS.
• 3.3/5V dual supplies.
• NTSC/PAL with color generation
• Micro SD card interface.
• Serial port.
• ISP and JTAG programming ports.
• PS/2 keyboard/mouse port.
• Expansion port header exporting
numerous I/O, power, and signal
lines for experimentation.
• 3.3/5V internally regulated supplies.
• Two game controller ports
The XGS AVR eight-bit kit
provides a fun way to learn AVR
programming in the context of graphics,
audio, and simple game development.
Instead of blinking LEDs and displaying
digits on a seven-segment display,
users will develop graphics
applications that control the VGA and
NTSC screen to learn AVR C and
ASM. The kit is extremely competitive
and comes with the following items
in the bundle:
• 350+ page printed manual covering
hardware, software, and numerous
