Can you please mention the pin connection details between the arduino uno and the atmel evk shield. I am working with arduino uno & atmel evk shield. I plugged the atmel shield with the arduino uno. And i programmed the sigfox talking plant hex file, Its not showing the id and PAC. Its displaying as shield error. Can you please guide me what went wrong?
Thanx in advance for your reply.

Sorry for the slow reply...
As far as I can remember, there only one way to plug the shield to the arduino.
The reset button on the shield has to be on the Arduino's USB plug side
You probably already see this picture:
Supposing your error is the one line 53 on this file https://github.com/luisomoreau/sigfox_talking_plant_atmel/blob/master/sigfox_talking_plant_atmel.ino,
Have you included the "AtmSIGFOXshd.h" header file?
Make sure that there is no mistake when you load the Sigfox shield class
I don't think there is a switch on the Atmel EVK shield, but if so, make sure it is in ON position.
Do not hesitate to ask for more details if needed.

As i used the external microcontroller (not the microcontroller on board) i interfaced microcontroller pins to the connector named EXT near the reset switch and its works fine.
But i have another query
I purchased the ATA8520E IC from digikey and placed in our own board as recommended by the atmel schematic.I am getting the atmversion number, but the ID & PAC value was read as 0. If i understood properly the SPI communication between the microcontroller and the ATA8520E was good as it is displaying the atmversion number.
Do the ID & PAC code will be stored in the IC or is there any other technique to read those values. Please help me regarding this.
