USBtinyISP AVR Programmer Kit




$24.00 ea.

The USBtinyISP is an inexpensive kit that emulates the AVRIsp in-system programmer. It's an inexpensive way to start "burning your own code"!

Description [Hide]

The USBtinyISP is an inexpensive USB-based AVR programmer and SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface). What that means is that you can plug this into your USB port, and have it program practically any Atmel AVR microcontroller. Here's what it offers:

  • 6-pin and 10 pin ISP (In-System Programmable) connectors
  • Compatible (via simple "glue" software) with the popular Atmel AVRStudio Integrated Development Environment compatible
  • Compatible with the popular AVRDude command-line programmer compatible
  • Power & Activity indicator LEDs
  • Software supported in Windows, MacOSX, and Linux
  • Being a kit, it's less expensive than the Atmel AVRISP programmer
  • USB powered
  • Comes with plastic enclosure - not many programmers have shells!

Developed by Adafruit Industries, this project is open-source, so you can review the circuit, software, and feel free to modify it suit your needs with full permission (under the Creative Commons license 2.5 Attrib./Share-alike).

USB A-B cable is not included
