I have some "reasonable" experience with Microcontrollers. However, this is limited to:
Despite this, however, I have no idea where to even start with the ADuCM363, or any Analog Microcontroller for that matter. I plan to use this chip on an upcoming project at work - a very simple system, simply the Micro sampling 1 sensor ADC channel, and transmitting the data over RS-485 using an integrated transceiver.
I really want to use this chip as the 24-Bit ADC is insane, and I'd like to get some experience with using other families of microcontrollers.
But I'm at a roadblock in that (1) I'm not sure what SDK/development/compiler environment to use, (2) I'm not sure what programmer I need, and (3) with said programmer, I'm not sure how to (on the PCB etc.) interface this to the Micro.
Here is a picture of the Microcontroller-related section of my schematic so far. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated on what I need.
I'm guessing much like ST it's something to do with the SWCLK, SWDIO, and RESET# pins. But what exactly it will be, I have no idea.
I have some suggestions for your design as below.
1. Keil or IAR or CCSE(ADI developped) can be used as IDE tools. New CMSIS pack has been released to support all ADuCM36x parts.
2. Due to ADuCM360/1/2/3 are completely pin to pin compatible, you can visit ADuCM360/1 home page which has listed many reference design. You can refer these reference design to easy your design. Also you can reference the evaluation board for your schematic or PCB development.
3. Please visit the
for example codes.
4. Comments on your schematic
a. Short AVDD_REG and DVDD_REG.
b. Pull up resistor on Reset pin and a capacitor to GND on Reset pin.
c. Pull up resistor on I2C pins.
d. Necessary capacitors on INT_ref pins and other power supply pins. Please refer the evaluation board sch.
