USB programming
« on: May 26, 2007, 11:24:04 PM »
Are any special ICs or wiring setups required to configure a board to be programmed through a USB connection?
I'm hoping to eliminate the serial connection from the board I'm designing...

Look at the FT-232 chip, from FTDI. That's what I use in some of my work.

You can also get breakout boards from Sparkfun that have a USB -> TTL chip:
