Thank you for responding to my message!
I think I should have uploaded images with my initial question.
The first image is what I get running the first part of the lab on the XMEGA.
This second image is what I got running the first part of the lab with the ARM.
My school bought both devices as we are looking into using them for our classes. I initially made my lesson using the XMEGA target, but noticing the latter shift of focuse to ARM went back to update the lab for arm. When testing it again, I got these conflicting results.
I am no expert and could be doing somthing wrong. But looking at the differences, it almost looks like the Arm is running some form of loop when the XMEGA goes to idle. This part of the lab should see both devices go idle. I used the same source c code for both devices.
Now I am not the first one to mess around with these devices from my school, and there is a chance the one was broken, as I know some kids tried probing it with an oscilloscope.
I am hoping to learn If I am doing somthing wrong, or if if my arm device is faultily.
I do not think I am having problems building, uploading, or communicating with the target, as I am able to communicate with the ARM Micro in the connecting to hardware notebook.
Hope to hear from you again!
