Xplained Pro
Xplained Pro is an evaluation platform that provides the full Atmel microcontroller experience. The platform
consists of a series of Microcontroller (MCU) boards and extension boards that are integrated with Atmel
Studio, have Atmel Software Framework (ASF) drivers and demo code, support data streaming and more.
Xplained Pro MCU boards support a wide range of Xplained Pro extension boards that are connected through
a set of standardized headers and connectors. Each extension board has an identification (ID) chip to uniquely
identify which boards are mounted on a Xplained Pro MCU board. This information is used to present relevant
user guides, application notes, datasheets and example code through Atmel Studio. Available Xplained Pro
1
MCU and extension boards can be purchased in the Atmel Web Store .
3.1
Embedded Debugger
The SAM D21 Xplained Pro contains the Atmel Embedded Debugger (EDBG) for on-board debugging. The
EDBG is a composite USB device of three interfaces; a debugger, Virtual COM Port and Data Gateway
Interface (DGI).
In conjunction with Atmel Studio, the EDBG debugger interface can program and debug the ATSAMD21J18A.
On the SAM D21 Xplained Pro, the SWD interface is connected between the EDBG and the ATSAMD21J18A.
The Virtual COM Port is connected to a UART port on the ATSAMD21J18A (see section “Embedded Debugger
Implementation” on page 13 for pinout), and provides an easy way to communicate with the target
application through simple terminal software. It offers variable baud rate, parity and stop bit settings. Note that
the settings on the target device UART must match the settings given in the terminal software.
The DGI consists of several physical data interfaces for communication with the host computer. See section
“Embedded Debugger Implementation” on page 13 for available interfaces and pinout. Communication
over the interfaces are bidirectional. It can be used to send events and values from the ATSAMD21J18A, or
as a generic printf-style data channel. Traffic over the interfaces can be timestamped on the EDBG for more
accurate tracing of events. Note that timestamping imposes an overhead that reduces maximal throughput. The
DGI uses a proprietary protocol, and is thus only compatible with Atmel Studio.
The EDBG controls two LEDs on SAM D21 Xplained Pro, a power LED and a status LED. Table 3-1, “EDBG
LED Control” on page 6 shows how the LEDs are controlled in different operation modes.
Table 3-1. EDBG LED Control

Normal operation

Bootloader mode (firmware

For further documentation on the EDBG, see the EDBG User Guide .
3.2
Hardware Identification System
All Xplained Pro compatible extension boards have an Atmel ATSHA204 CryptoAuthentication™ chip mounted.
This chip contains information that identifies the extension with its name and some extra data. When an
Xplained Pro extension board is connected to an Xplained Pro MCU board the information is read and sent
to Atmel Studio. The Atmel Kits extension, installed with Atmel Studio, will give relevant information, code
examples and links to relevant documents. Table 3-2, “Xplained Pro ID Chip Content” on page 6 shows the
data fields stored in the ID chip with example content.

Power Supply
The SAM D21 Xplained Pro kit can be powered either by USB or by an external power source through the 4pin power header, marked PWR. This connector is described in “Xplained Pro Power Header” on page 8.
The available power sources and specifications are listed in Table 3-3, “Power Sources for SAM D21 Xplained

Measuring SAM D21 Power Consumption
As part of an evaluation of the SAM D21 it can be of interest to measure its power consumption. Because the
device has a separate power plane (VCC_MCU_P3V3) on this board it is possible to measure the current
consumption by measuring the current that is flowing into this plane. The VCC_MCU_P3V3 plane is connected
via a jumper to the main power plane (VCC_TARGET_P3V3) and by replacing the jumper with an ammeter it is
possible to determine the current consumption. To locate the current measurement header, refer to Figure 1-1,
“SAM D21 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit Overview” on page 4.
Warning
Do not power the board without having the jumper or an ammeter mounted. This can cause the
SAM D21 to be powered through its I/O pins and cause undefined operation of the device.

Standard Headers and Connectors
3.4.1
Xplained Pro Standard Extension Header
All Xplained Pro kits have one or more dual row, 20-pin, 100mil extension headers. Xplained Pro MCU boards
have male headers while Xplained Pro extensions have their female counterparts. Note that all pins are not

always connected. However, all the connected pins follow the defined pin-out described in Table 3-4, “Xplained
Pro Extension Header” on page 8. The extension headers can be used to connect a wide variety of
Xplained Pro extensions to Xplained Pro MCU boards and to access the pins of the target MCU on Xplained
Pro MCU board directly.

USB
The SAM D21 Xplained Pro has a micro USB receptable for use with the SAM D21 USB module. To be able to
detect when a USB cable is connected, a GPIO is used to detect the VBUS voltage on the connector. The USB
ID line is used to detect if a host mode cable is connected and will automatically switch on the power to the
USB connector. The I/O connected to USB ID can be used to read the status of the line or manually override
the voltage output. For other modes on the USB ID lines, refer to the USB organization specifications.

ATSAMD21J18A using Serial Wire Debug (SWD). The Embedded Debugger also include a Virtual Com port
interface over UART, an Atmel Data Gateway Interface over SPI and TWI and it monitors four of the SAM D21
GPIOs. Atmel Studio can be used as a front end for the Embedded Debugger.
4.3.1
Serial Wire Debug
The Serial Wire Debug (SWD) use two pins to communicate with the target. For further information on how to
use the programming and debugging capabilities of the EDBG, see “Embedded Debugger” on page 6.

Virtual COM Port
The Embedded Debugger acts as a Virtual Com Port gateway by using one of the ATSAMD21J18A UARTs.
For further information on how to use the Virtual COM port see “Embedded Debugger” on page 6.

Atmel Data Gateway Interface
The Embedded Debugger features an Atmel Data Gateway Interface (DGI) by using either a SPI or I²C port.
The DGI can be used to send a variety of data from the SAM D21 to the host PC. For further information on
how to use the DGI interface see “Embedded Debugger” on page 6.

Four GPIO lines are connected to the Embedded Debugger. The EDBG can monitor these lines and time
stamp pin value changes. This makes it possible to accurately time stamp events in the SAM D21 application
code. For further information on how to configure and use the GPIO monitoring features see “Embedded
Debugger” on page 6.

Hardware Revision History and Known Issues
5.1
Identifying Product ID and Revision
The revision and product identifier of Xplained Pro boards can be found in two ways, through Atmel Studio or
by looking at the sticker on the bottom side of the PCB.
By connecting a Xplained Pro MCU board to a computer with Atmel Studio running, an information window will
pop up. The first six digits of the serial number, which is listed under kit details, contain the product identifier
and revision. Information about connected Xplained Pro extension boards will also appear in the Atmel Kits
window.
The same information can be found on the sticker on the bottom side of the PCB. Most kits will print the
identifier and revision in plain text as A09-nnnn\rr where nnnn is the identifier and rr is the revision. Boards with
limited space have a sticker with only a QR-code which contains a serial number string.
The serial number string has the following format:
"nnnnrrssssssssss"
n = product identifier
r = revision
s = serial number
The kit identifier for SAM D21 Xplained Pro is 2130.
5.2
Revision 2
Revision 2 of SAM D21 Xplained Pro is the initial released version.
