avr microcontroler programing
« on: July 22, 2010, 03:58:40 AM »
Can you program an avr microcontroler using the AVR studio 4 or you need another program like ponyprog to do it and if you can how?

You can write the program for your microcontroller in AVR studio 4 however you will need something like ponyprog to actually transfer the program into the microcontroller. This may help you understand. http://www.societyofrobots.com/step_by_step_robot_step4.shtml

That is if you are using certain types of programmers like the AVR ISP MKII or STK500

you can use WInAVR to make program and to see step by step how your program work( see value off register that you use ,PORT etc) usuallu use Avr studio.. byt by suggest you can use Code Vision AVR... it more easy to use...

All AVR chips with USB hardware come preloaded with a USB bootloader and no programmer is necessary. Arduino is the other option. Arduino boards are AVR chips with the Arduino bootloader allows the use of serial/ttl to USB using an FTDI chip and they support programming via USB with no additional programmer.

whoa whoa whoa! I'm a total newbie here, about to buy everything I need for my first robot. Do I need a programmer? I was looking at using an atmega168. When you say, AVR chip, are you talking about a preaugmented board or developement board, or just the chip. I HAVE seen chips advertised as having the arduino bootloader on them, but I'm still not too sure what arduino is. Can I use the arduino bootloader to program my chip with a prgram written in C in avrstudio? Thanks

For a blank ATmega168 chip you need a hardware programmer. For a ATmega168 chip with Arduino bootloader, you need a USB FTDI cable. If you buy a board, depends what was installed on that board.
If you decide to program in AVR Studio, get a hardware programmer and blank chips.

The atmega168 doesn't have built in USB hardware. So yes, as Ro-Bot-X said, you will need a programmer. I use the AVR ISP mkII and it seems to have done the trick so far.

For a full listing of the current AVR chips:

I buy all of my gear from mouser.com, cheap and quick on the shipping.
