Hi Dr. Stephan Pabst
- You are correct with regards to the ratings of the regulator. This was an oversight on my part. Thank you for pointing this error out.
- Regarding your second point from section 2.7.1.4, this data is from taking actual measurements on Arduino boards. I have checked the actual measurements again, taken across diode D1 on three genuine Arduino boards using two different multimeters: with no external hardware connected a voltage drop across the diode of around 0.76V was measured. After pulling approximately 350mA from the external supply, a voltage drop across the diode of approximately 0.83V was measured. I should probably have cross referred to section 7.3.2, where it is mentioned that the volt drop can be up to 1.1V.

Thanks Dr. Stephan Pabst for your feedback. I think the point for these non-PWM pins is that nothing will happen in terms of PWM, so don't call analogWrite() on them. I didn't actually test the levels myself, as I didn't think it necessary because they won't produce a PWM waveform. But thanks for taking the time to write a note on these intricate details. I will definitely include them in a future update to the book.

Hi Dr. Stephan Pabst.
Thank you very much for your feedback. I don't know how I missed that error - thanks for pointing it out.
I will add an errata page to the website for the book so that readers have a place to report errors.
Thanks again.

Hi John_NLD
Yes. Start a new project in Atmel Studio by using one of the existing templates. In Atmel Studio, select your STK500 programmer as the tool and then save. Now go to File -- Export Template In the dialog box that opens, make sure that 'Project template' is selected. Click Next. In the next dialog box, give the new template a name. Click Finish.

The next time you start a new project, the new template should appear in the New Project dialog box. Starting a new project from this template will ensure that your STK500 is selected by default.

Hope this helps.

Hi Greg
Yes, you can use the Atmel ICE (ATATMEL-ICE) instead of the AVR Dragon. It has the same programming and debugging capabilities.

And here is a link to the Atmel-ICE product page for reference: https://www.microchip.com/DevelopmentTools/Produc...

The accompanying files can be found on this page: https://www.elektor.com/c-programming-with-arduin...

You need to scroll down and look under the Downloads section - the link name is Arduino_C_source_code.

This direct link should also work: https://www.elektor.com/amfile/file/download/file...

There may be some time in the future, but not immediately.

Theoretically, any Mega 2560 should work, even a clone. I have always used the arduino.cc Mega 2560 myself.
