'[AVR]: Basic getting started FAQ'
2001\10\02@171404 by Kevin Olalde

I've just started to poke around the web, AVRFreaks, Dontronics, AVR Web Ring
...., but thought I'd post here too.

I've been working with PICs for a little bit now (great fun), but wanted to try
Atmel parts too.  I'm hoping to find a simple programmer circuit (like a
Tait-style for the PIC) and software so I can begin to noddle around with the
chips.  I'd like to avoid buying a kit, as I probably have all the parts I need
to get started, expect for some Atmel chips and programming software.

Thanks in advanced,
Kevin

Hi Kevin, are you in luck, the way to program AVR's is called ISP (In
Circuit Programming) If you live in Au the October issue of Silicon Chip has
a great article on a simple programmer, and how to set the free software up
:o)

For the hardware, do a search on the internet (something like AVR ISP
programmer) wade through all the commercial crap (look at the sites as some
have the schematics, some offer etched PCB's) and you should find a circuit.
The circuit is dead simple, it has a D25 male for the parallel port, and a
2row 5pin (10 pins in total) .1" header. on the PCB is a few caps, a few
resistors and 2x 74xx244 bus driver chips.

On the Atmel site (http://www.atmel.com) go to flash microcontrollers, AVR,
Software Tools, grab the AVR Studio 3.2. If you want to run under dos or
older versions of windows, down load the AVR ISP software. I also did a
google search and found a few extra programs, like a coloured editor (IE
green is a label, cream is a definition I.E. Register 16 = TEMP)

Regards,

Kat.

Thanks, you're correct, in the time since I sent my query I've found at least 4
different circuits and programmers to try.  I'm in the US (Pittsburgh) so it's a
tad expensive to get that magazine.

We have the schematics of the AVR serial and parallel port programmers on
our web page http://www.olimex.com/dev
There are links to programming software as well.

Best regards
