Burn bootloader while NRF24L01 is connected



  • I think I have distroyed many ATmega328p when I am trying to burn bootloader to it while NRF24L01 is connected to ATmega, both are using MISO, MOSI and SCK.

    Can anyone confirm my thoughts?



  • No, uselly you have "Enable" pin with pullup



  • So they are not distroyed?

    But I cant upload new bootloader when NRF is connected the ATmega always answer

    avrdude: Device signature = 0x000000
    avrdude: Yikes!  Invalid device signature.
    

    I remove the NRF and still answer

    avrdude: Device signature = 0x000000
    avrdude: Yikes!  Invalid device signature.
    


  • check ou have pullup resistor on CSN. Or you can try to remove NRF24 and try to burn bootloader.

    See above: I get same answer when NRF is removed



  • I don't know why your atmega isn't responding but it's not related to programming when NRF is connected.
    Can you check the fuse ? Is it work with new atmega you ISP hardware is ok ?

    Yes, it works with new atmega.
    I am using Arsuino UNO as ISP.

    I will try to find a way to read fuses or maybe it is writing when I use AVRdude manually



  • I tried with new atmega, it worked fine, so I tried with new atmega and NRF connected, worked fine. So I can be sure that the problem was/is not the NRF, as @Fabien said, thanks.
    I don't understand what it can be, I have destroyed maybe 5 pieces when I try to upload new sketch, through Arduino UNO as ISP, maybe it can be power problem or maybe the wires got loosen when I upload sketch?

    I cannot check the fuses, atmega doesn't answer.



  • I am using IDE 1.6.8
