Works – USB AVR ISP AVRISP Programmer Reviews

posted by psymonesque on 11/21/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Small neat, does the trick. Works with Arduino software. Implemented with PL2303 + ATMEGA8535
Cons:
VTG (pin 2) and one of the GND (pin 4) were not connected. As I like to power via the device I ran a wire from +5 USB through to pin2. The Shrink wrap was happy to stretch to accommodate this.
Other:
The supplied cable is 10 pin at both ends, an extra 6 pin header on one end would make it really nice. Further note for Arduino Software users: This is an AVRISP MkII however, since it is implemented with a pl2303 you need a driver for this and you also need to edit your programmer.txt file and change avrispmkii.communication=serial rather than =usb
Bottomline:
Value for money. Go buy one.
