So I have been messing around with the A2 board. I really like it, but there are three things that kind of annoy me.
The JTAG on the board and programmer are backwards. It might just be me, but i expected to install some 90 degree headers and plug the A2 into the programmer with both top sides facing up. This is not the case and i have to check the orientation a lot.
Possibly a feature considering the above, but it irks me that the programmer doesn’t power the board when connected. I can think of a dozen times when this would be bad, but it would be convient at first. Not really an issue.
Easiest to solve. The example code for the A2 doesn’t do anything. It doesn’t blink a led. Especially annoying since using the internal oscillator is not super apparent to somebody who hasn’t already gotten three manuals deep into the documentation.
Just some thoughts. Also, sorry. I know I complain a lot.
