Information to provide when asking for help

If you post a question asking for help with something, we almost always need to know which part you are using.  So please say which part in the first question and that will save an extra back and forth exchange where we ask you which part.

Second, for many questions we also need to know which tools you are using.  So if it is anything related to programming a part flash, or some problem compiling or anything else that might be remotely tool dependent, tell us which tools you are using.

So in summary, if it is not obvious from your question please provide any of the following you think is remotely relevant:

  • what part/rev
  • what tools
  • your own board? eval board?
  • crystal frequency
