This is a simple to use USB AVR programmer. It is low cost, easy to use, works great with AVRDude, and is tested extensively on a Windows desktop. Based on Dick Streefland’s USBtiny and Limor Fried’s USBtinyISP. This is a low-cost programmer designed for those on a tight budget. This programmer works really well for ATmega168 and ATmega328 and should work with all the AVR micros supported by AVRDUDE. The microcontroller-to-be-programmed can be any AVR with 64K or less of flash. This board is buffered and power protected so that you can do some really evil things to the programmer without killing it. The connector is 2×5 pin Atmel STKxxx compatible layout.
