SAM D11 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit

The SAM D11 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit uses an ATSAMD11D14A MCU. It includes a user push button and LED, two QTouch® buttons, two USB micro-B connectors (one for program/debug), a current measurement header, and one extension header for connecting Xplained Pro extension boards.

This board has an on-board programmer/debugger. No external programmer/debugger (e.g., SAM-ICE™) is required.

The I/O1 Xplained Pro is an extension board to the Xplained Pro evaluation platform. It includes a microSD™ card, a temperature sensor, a light sensor, and more.

Atmel® START example projects for this board

As of March 2018, there were 15 Atmel START example projects that use this board. To find all currently available example projects related to this board, go to the Atmel START homepage, click on BROWSE EXAMPLES, and select this board from the drop-down window.

Project Name Description
ADP HELLO WORLD DEMO The example sends "Hello, World!" to the terminal in Data Visualizer using SPI Master driver.
CALENDAR DEMO This example shows the use of the Calendar driver and alarms to blink LED0 every ten seconds.
EDBG UART The example application uses the Asynchronous USART driver to communicate with the console via EDBG Virtual COM Port. The example echoes received data back to the console.
IO1 XPLAINED DEMO This example reads information about current temperature and light level and sends it to the console every second. The USART driver is used to communicate with the console; the ADC driver is used to read data from the light sensor; the I2C Master driver is used to read data from the temperature sensor.
LED FLASHER This example periodically toggles the onboard LED marked as LED0.
LED SWITCHER This example toggles the onboard LED marked as LED0 every time the button SW0 is pressed.
LIGHT SENSOR This example periodically reads data from the light sensor using the ADC driver with the period of 1/4 of a second. When 32 measures of light brightness are collected, they are averaged and sent to the console via the USART driver. The periodic conversion of light sensor data is organized using the Timer driver.
PWM EXAMPLE This example periodically reads data from the light sensor using the ADC driver and uses read data to control PWM duty cycle.
RTOS DEMO After start-up, the application blinks the LED continuously. By inputting the character from the EDBG Virtual COM Port the LED changes its blinking state.
SAMD11 XPRO TOUCH PROJECT This example demonstrates the basic touch application where the onboard touch sensors are measured and the touch status is indicated using LED. The touch library parameters are also displayed in the datavisualizer software when the hardware kit is connected through edbg/medbg vritual com port.
USB CDC ECHO This demo behaves like a virtual COM port based on USD device CDC. It echoes back bytes received from the console.
USB COMPOSITE DEVICE This demo behaves like a composite device, which is composed of CDC ACM, HID Mouse, and HID Keyboard. The virtual com echoes back bytes received from the console. Pressing Button1 down will make the mouse move leftward and pressing Button3 down makes it move rightward. Button2 is used as Caps Lock key for this application.
USB HID GENERIC This demo behaves like an HID Generic Device to communicate with the Atmel PC Tool (AVR153 – USB PC Drivers Based on Generic HID).
USB HID KEYBOARD This demo behaves like a keyboard based on USB device HID. The Button1 is used as Ctrl, Button2 used as Alt, and Button3 used as Del on OLED1 Xplained Board.
USB HID MOUSE This demo behaves like a mouse based on USB device HID. Mouse pointer moves based on the button which is pressed down on the OLED1 Xplained Board. Button1 is to the left and Button3 is to the right.
USB MSC DEVICE This demo behaves as a removable disk, which is 22 Kb used by internal RAM.
