Programming Axon with an Arduino
« on: January 18, 2011, 10:38:44 PM »
This week I found out the an Arduino can be used as an AVR ISP programmer and decided to try to program my Axon II with it.  http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoISP

The diagrams in the link are for uploading the Arduino bootloader to another Arduino, but after looking at the Arduino forum I found that:

pin10: slave reset
pin 11: MOSI
pin 12: MISO
pin 13: SCK

I also connected the GND on the Arduino to the GND on the ISP header and the 5v on the Arduino to the Vcc on the header.

Did I do everything right? Don't want to fry anything.
Which way do I plug in the header; I marked the GND pin, but I obviously don't have the red wire that's on standard ISP cables.

Yeap, that looks right to me.

Which header?

Do you mean this, where the square matches up with the triangle on the Axon?

Yeah that's what I was looking for.

I'll post the results once I'm done. Almost ready to upload.
