50$ Robot

(1/1)

Molni:
Hi!

I am considering about making the $50 robot, but I am a little bit confused. I mean i saw the list of parts and I can't decide if I need the AVR STK Serial Port
Dongle Programmer, the AVR ISP2 Programmer and the Pocket AVR Programmer too, or I just need one of them. I am confused about the batteries too. I should buy all the 3 or just 1?

MrWizard:
You just need one programmer. Get one thats atmel studio compatible or avrdude compatible.

Also on the batteries it depends on the robots you want to create. For the 50$ a 4x AA batteryholder will be just fine.
If you want more advanced stuff, you will need bigger capacity batteries.

@ Molni, Do NOT buy a serial port programmer. They just don't work. I learnt that from my experience. Besides, serial ports are very hard to find these days. I think the best choice for a cheap and good programmer is a 3$~9$ usbasp programmer.. It is cheaper and 10x better than a serial port dongle programmer. The usbasp programmer is avrdude compatible so you will have to install avrdude on your computer.
