Hi Roger,

If you have trouble with MassStorage, the easiest way is to go to DFU with BOOT0 using USB.
For Serial, as I said, I didn't manage to get it working.
Also beware that Serial PB6/PB7 is not located at the same place on recent PCB than previous version, since in the old days, it wasn't compatible with Arduino Mega, now it is !
(The photos found on wiki are still old one, although the old one had nicer Top layer skillscreen missing on new layout, on Bottom is there)

On my mac, copy the binary in MBED directory does not work. To upload bin file, I need to use openocd.
Make sure you have the latest firmware for the lpc debug chip:
https://developer.mbed.org/platforms/Seeed-Arch-Max/

The firmware v0221 2015-02-03 for Arch Max fix Mac OS X 10.10 readonly fs bug and improve stability.

@ddrown

Thanks for the information

My it looks like the mbed setup link in the NXP processor was incorrect for my board.

When I clicked on the html page, it installed the "SeedStudio Arch" not the "SeedStudio Arch Max".

So I added the Arch Max from the link in @ddrown's post to my mbed account, and now when I compiled in mbed and uploaded via mass storage, the LED is now flashing.

I double checked on mbed and the led appears to be on PB3 (like other have posted).

I must have been looking at the wrong data sheet, when I thought that SPI3_CLK was on a different pin.

I will try again via the Arduino IDE (uploading via mass storage, using the Export Compiled binary menu )

In case anyone's interested in a third development environment for this board (aside from mbed and stm32duino). I added support for it to ChibiOS, zip files for it are attached to this thread: http://www.chibios.com/forum/viewtopic. ... 953#p25953

The demo program attached to that forum thread has the following working functions:

1. "command shell" on the debug serial port
2. very simple webserver
3. sdcard reading
4. most important feature: blinky LED :)

My board has finally arrived... :)
I am planning to evaluate it next days, so I would like to know which IDE are other happy Arch Max owners using? MBED as described here?
Or anyone tried our repo?

For all basic stuff, such USBSerial/Serial/GPIOs, and even SdCard, our STM32Duino is doing the full job.
For ETH stuff, I didn't have much other chance to use mBed.
I wish that we can bring some of the mBed code into STM32Duino, but this tasks isn't simple.

Yessss, I wish that too!
I offer my volunteer service, as far as my time allows.
