System RED with off the shelf Atmegas
#1
Hi

Last night I finally got around assembling the System RED that has been sitting on my shelf for a very long time now. (Really sorry about that. Reason: children)

The Atmega8's are off the shelf (not kit ones) and I'm guessing that they have to be programmed but I cannot find any information about this in the documentation or in the forum?

Thank you.

I see that the latest fw there is 1.7, but trough a little googling yesterday I found 1.8.
I was lacking the fuse info, very helpful!

1.8 is for system BLUE.

For system RED use one of those:
Red_PCB_12_PCB_13_ATMEGA-48_1.6.hex
Red_PCB_12_PCB_13_ATMEGA-48_1.7.hex
Red_PCB_12_PCB_13_ATMEGA-8_1.6.hex
Red_PCB_12_PCB_13_ATMEGA-8_1.7.hex

Depending if you have Atmega48 or Atmega8.
V1.7 also handles E-Field amplifier.

Got both amps flashed with 1.7 and the correct fuse settings, works perfectly now!

Ready to go online, just waiting for an account.

Thanks again.
