    I just purchased this board and, after some research, I still have a question about the PDI interface. I see Atmel uses an AT90USB chip to transmit data to the XMega. I don’t have an AT90USB, but I do have the (older) Sparkfun ATMega8u2 break-out. Is it possible to use the 8u2 to program the XMega over PDI?

    I have the 8u2 version of this board and I’m looking into PDI for the XMega chips. Is there any way to use this to program an XMega over PDI?

    If you’re using the Arduino Serial Monitor for your terminal, you have to set “No line ending” for the $$$ command. Any data within 1 second of the $$$ command will nullify that command. All other data must be sent with a carriage return, so set that option in the Serial monitor AFTER entering your $$$ command.

    In my experience, the D command should work regardless. I have been able to command D, E, etc with all pairings removed and no stored addresses. Pay special attention to the fact that a carriage return after $$$ will nullify the command, but a carriage return is required for all other commands.

    You can also store a BT address in the module and set it up as Auto-Master (or something like that… it’s in the manual) so it attempts a connection to the paired device on startup.

    You said not to ask for more detail, so I’m going to ask for more detail! I would love to hear more about this subject. I’m sure there are some out there who want to work with things like analog audio circuits and share this interest.

    The LCD pinout on this board matches the SF Serial LCD pinout for the 3-pin JST connector. Solder in a JST connector and you should be good. Also, you can look at the traces and see that the pins connect to V, GND, and Rx on Arduino pin D6 (left to right, front face).
