what avr programer and where to buy
« on: April 21, 2010, 02:55:15 PM »
Hi all
what is the best AVR Programmer? A good balance between functionality and price. I am looking to buy one but did not find any in UK or e-bay.
I found those from US I think

http://www.robotsimple.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=50

Please leave your comments about them, or if you show me UK place where to buy and save me waiting would be even better

Thank you in advance

Get the AVR ISP MKII, it is the official programmer from Atmel and will always be working well  ;D

I currently have the AVR ISP MKII Programmer and it is pretty awesome. More expensive though.  :)

I swear by this guy

http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/1300

$20 and it has some side features like an additional Uart and o-scope function.

I've actually just started hard mounting them to my robot (since they are cheap) as a single USB cable for both programming and debugging printf from my MCU.

I'm so glad to hear that as the AVR MKII costs twice that + delivery + UK VAT + Parcel Force handling charges (such a pain)
definately going for polulu programer :)
