Minipov+Mac+SB2Serial - ???

by AnnaOnWeb on Sun Jun 06, 2010 6:05 pm

Hi,
I have a MiniPov-Kit, a Mac with avrdude, the right driver for the USB2Serial.
When I enter in Terminal:

avrdude -p t2313 -P /dev/tty.PL2303-002075FD -c dasa -U flash:w:largeimage.hex

the programming seems to work LED3 permanently lighting, #1 and #2 blinking...

And after a while I get this:

avrdude: AVR device not responding
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
this check.


avrdude done. Thank you.

Does anyone have an idea?

Thank you very much in advance,

Anna

make sure you are powering the board when you try to program it.

check your soldering. look for cold joints on the db-25 connector. check the three diodes and r10-12.

did you build the board as a pov toy or something else? i have used a minipov board to drive an led cube and have to disconnect it from the outputs for led1 and led2 in order to be able to program it successfully.

Thank you!
After digging further and further into this forum I found the most simple solution:
Even if connected to a powered hub: Connect the Serial Adapter to an USB port on your machine.
Thats it! And I found a cu.-file in my /dev-folder which looked more useful.
Oh man ... how long does programming take ....
