Some further thoughts –
* How do you know it’s dead?
* Have you another mcu to test with?
* What capacitors are you using? 22pf
should be fine.
* Is it a parallel cut crystal? A “series
cut” crystal would not work, but these are rarer.
* Are you trying this on a breadboard? It
should still work but leads need to be kept as short as possible. Try running
without any peripherals connected (ie, just connect VCC, GND, the XTAL pins and
your programmer – you’ll know the crystal works if you’re
able to read the fuses from AVR Studio or program the device – if this
solves it then start looking at the rest of your circuit for problems).
* If changing the setting worked properly,
you can still use a lower value crystal such as an 8MHz, which you can use to
test the chip (and your 16mhz crystal, which may be defective).
AtmegaGA8535 16PU 0512A. How does this fair with your speed theory - and how do
----- Original Message
Just a thought, does your part have
ATMEGA8535-16PC (or -16AI) marked on it? If you are using an -8xx mcu then I
could imagine it becoming unhappy with the high speed crystal.
put this off far to long now, but I have to up my frequency. I have ticked the
(CKOPT) and (CKSEL=1111 SUT=11) and my Atmega8535 has died just as it did last
time. It has a new crystal and caps but something is wrong. Any help most
apreciated, what can it be?
