ZL11AVR

Description

Development kit for AT90S1200/2313/ATtiny2313 microcontrollers. A board designed for building simple applications with AVR AT90S1200, AT90S2313 and ATtiny2313 microcontrollers. Its equipment, easy adaptation to personal requirements, as well as hardware compatibility with the AVT-3500 board make it suitable for both beginners and advanced users who want to work with microcontrollers or quickly build a microprocessor controller.

1-2 USB Power supply from USB
2-3 EXT Power supply from external 9...12 VDC


RS232 interface

In the case of self-assembly of the board, one of two possible variants of the voltage interface should be selected. Because of reliability, an interface based on the MAX232 (U4) chip is recommended. In this case, you can not assemble elements: T1, R32 and J4.

Jumper J4, J5 and J6 are used to select the voltage interface (in case the user decides to install both of his versions on the board). The jumpers J4... 6 functions are shown below.

J4 jumper function

Position Designation on PCB Description
1-2 Off T1 base disconnected from line TxD_TTL (recommended position for MAX232 in RS232)
2-3 RS T1 base connected to line TxD_TTL (recommended position for transistor voltage converter in RS232)


J5 jumper function

Position Designation on PCB Description
1-2 MAX T7 collector disconnected from line RxD_TTL (recommended position for MAX232 in RS232)
2-3 T T7 collector connected to line RxD_TTL (recommended position for transistor voltage converter in RS232)


J6 jumper function

Position Designation on PCB Description
1-2 - Recommended position when T7 is not used as an input buffer
2-3 RxD Off Recommended position when T7 is used as an input buffer and MAX232 is used in RS232
ISP programming

The microcontroller used in the board can be programmed using the ISP (In System Programming) programmer, for example ZL20PRG. There are two ISP connectors available:

  • JP3, adapted to standard IDC10 connectors (ZL20PRG),
  • JP9, enabling the use of any programmer equipped with one-contacts connectors.

Both connectors make possible to power ISP programmers with 5V voltage.

C/A and A/C converters

The standard equipment of the board is PCF8591, which integrates a 4-channel A/D converter (each channel with a resolution of 8 bits) and a D/A converter with a voltage output (also with a resolution of 8 bits). Access to the converters is possible via the I2C bus. The reference voltage for the converters is generated by the U3 chip. It is regulated with using PR3 potentiometer (or PR2, depending on the version).


Reset

Microcontroller used in the ZL11AVR board can be reset by the user with a jumper placed on the pins marked as G and R. Their short circuit reset the microcontroller.
