Hi, I'm new to the list, having just set up a Linux development environment for 
the Avr (binutils-, gcc-3.3,avr-libc-20030512cvs, simulavr cvs 
download 11Aug2003 and gdb+dejagnu.tar.bz2 current 11Aug2003. The toolset is 
absolutely fantastic and my thanks to those who have made them available, you 
guys are GPL legends :)

I'm currently happily single stepping thru my Avr test code under the very cool 
DDD as I used to do for the 8051 family under SDCC, see 
http://milkstone.d2.net.au/embedded.html for a screen pic.

I popped into this thread to suggest gEDA for those who are doing schematic 
capture, as an alternative to closed source solutions. I have a page detailing 
my experiences with gEDA and pcb, complete with screenshots and a pic of a pcb 
I produced at home using the above toolset a few years ago.

For anyone that may be interested in stable and featureful GPL schematic 
capture and pcb cad layout, may I offer my page as further reading ?


I also would be interested in designing a GPL Jtag interface for the Avr 
toolset in the long run, and have a decent design environment for hardware 
development myself as I'm a hardware developer (one man band) for small 
embedded industrial control solutions and have been for the last 20 years.

Kind Regards
