stk500 – USB AVR ISP AVRISP Programmer Reviews

posted by pppall on 01/11/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
works, cheap, small, it works on avr studio 4 as stk500 (tested on attiny2313)
Cons:
little unstable, 50kHz is not always working for reading signature, i am worrying about ripping off some parts even through heatshring tube, short cable but longer can be more unstable than actual
Other:
i can recommend this to my friends as cheap alternative to other programmers which are working with avrstudio 4, yes there are cheaper programmers but not with stk500 compatibility (at least i have not found similar). I have already one polish programmer with more funkcionality but for almost 3x bigger price, and this one will be good as backup
Bottomline:
as is written by psymonesque programmer is with prolific chip, so find prolific in your windows com ports
