EEPROM help

by drewtstew on Thu Jan 23, 2020 5:44 pm

Hello there, I am almost finished with my x0xb0x build and realized that I just have the blank EEPROM, but I can't seem to find the bootloader files or any resources on how to get them on there. I've built synths in the past and have an Olimex AVR-ISP-MK2 (although I vaguely remember seeing that I'd need a different one for this EEPROM, I may remember that wrong, though), so I'm sure I could get it going if pointed in the right direction.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The eeprom IC is just used for pattern storage.

You probably mean the atmel mcu.
The bootloader is here: https://github.com/a1k0n/x0xb0x/tree/master/bootloader
You can probably find the info on how to flash it when you google or search on this forum. I don't know any links for it.

I have the Atmel chip programmed, I got it from Willzyx that way. Does that mean the EEPROM doesn't need any specific firmware loaded on it and it will hold the patterns as I create and save them? If so, awesome!
