This adds support for the Atmel AVR32 architecture as well as the AT32AP7000
CPU and the AT32STK1000 development board.
AVR32 is a new high-performance 32-bit RISC microprocessor core, designed for
cost-sensitive embedded applications, with particular emphasis on low power
consumption and high code density. The AVR32 architecture is not binary
compatible with earlier 8-bit AVR architectures.
The AVR32 architecture, including the instruction set, is described by the
AVR32 Architecture Manual, available from
The Atmel AT32AP7000 is the first CPU implementing the AVR32 architecture. It
features a 7-stage pipeline, 16KB instruction and data caches and a full
Memory Management Unit. It also comes with a large set of integrated
peripherals, many of which are shared with the AT91 ARM-based controllers from
Full data sheet is available from
while the CPU core implementation including caches and MMU is documented by
the AVR32 AP Technical Reference, available from
Information about the AT32STK1000 development board can be found at
including a BSP CD image with an earlier version of this patch, development
tools (binaries and source/patches) and a root filesystem image suitable for
booting from SD card.
Alternatively, there's a preliminary "getting started" guide available at
http://avr32linux.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/GettingStarted which provides links
to the sources and patches you will need in order to set up a cross-compiling
environment for avr32-linux.
This patch, as well as the other patches included with the BSP and the
toolchain patches, is actively supported by Atmel Corporation.
