This programmer is based on Thomas Fischl's USBasp design and connects to your computer's USB port. Not only is it quite compact, but the design is really elegent. The USB interface is achieved by using an atmega processor and the rest is done in firmware. For those interested, the firmware source code can be downloaded from the USBasp website.

Some of the features include:
  • Support for AVRDude from version 5.2 onwards
  • Allows you to to read or write the microcontroller EEPROM, firmware, fuse bits and lock bits
  • Support for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows (will work on vista)
  • 5 KB/sec maximum write speed
  • Software controlled SCK option to support targets with low clock speed (< 1.5MHz)
  • 10 pin ISP interface


Windows drivers can be downloaded from http://www.protostack.com/download/USBasp-driver-0.1.12.2.zip
A users manual can be dowloaded from http://www.protostack.com/download/Users Guide (AC-PG-USBASP-UG-V1.2).pdf
