Pocket AVR Programmer
 
(0 reviews)  

Description: This new version uses an SMD 5×2 header. This is a simple to use USB AVR programmer. It is low cost, easy to use, works great with AVRDude, and is tested extensively on a Windows desktop. Based on Dick Steefland's USBtiny and Limor Fried's USBtinyISP.


However, this is a low-cost programmer designed for those on a tight budget. For out-of-the-box compatibility with other operating systems and machines, checkout the AVR ISP2 USB programmer from Digikey.

This programmer works really well for ATmega168 and ATmega328 and should work with all the AVR micros supported by AVRDUDE.

This board is buffered and power protected so that you can do some really evil things to the programmer without killing it. It is fast! Comparable speed to the AVR ISP2 USB programmer from Digikey. One of the greatest features of this board is the ability to power the target (up to 500mA) from the programmer.

To use this programmer, attach to a Windows machine and install the drivers listed below. Open a command prompt. Assuming WinAVR (and therefore AVRDUDE) have been installed, type:


avrdude -c usbtiny -B 1 -patmega328 -U flash:w:main.hex

Be sure to include the "-B 1" flag as this will significantly increase the programming speed! You may need to change -p flag to your appropriate microcontroller. You can setup a tool and hotkey in Programmers Notepad to do this automatically.

Some people are having trouble installing the drivers to their Windows 7 machines because they are unsigned. There is a workaround available in the documents below.

Note: This product is a collaboration with Limor Fried. A portion of each sales goes back to them for product support and continued development.

Features:

  • Standard AVR ISP programmer
  • ATtiny2313 with USBtiny firmware preloaded
  • Buffered output
  • PTC fuse protected power
  • Programmer can power target
  • Supports ATmega168/328 and many others
  • Two status LEDs
  • Both 10-pin and 6-pin targets supported (cable included)

Documents:

Open Source Hardware: We like to share. The original engineering files are available for mass hackery.

  • Firmware based on USBtiny (type 'make all' in the spi directory). I've found that the compile only works with older versions of WinAVR (20080430).
  • Eagle Files (Licensed under CC v3.0 Share-Alike)
