READSIG

Top  Previous  Next

Action

This function reads a byte from the signature area.

 

 

Syntax

var = READSIG(offset)

 

 

Remarks

Var

A byte that is assigned with the signature byte.

Offset

A byte variable or constant with an offset to the signature.

 

The Xmega has a number of signature bytes that are important.

For example the ADC is calibrated in the factory and the calibration data need to be loaded into the ADC registers in order to achieve 12 bit resolution.

 

The following offset table is copied from the Xmega128A1 definition file. It should be the same for all other Xmega chips but it is best to check it.

While the XMEGA was the first processor with support of reading the signature row, most new AVR chips also have the functionality.

Please check the datasheet to see which addresses must be used.
