SparkFun Electronics will be closed on November 26, 2020 and November 27, 2020 for the Thanksgiving holiday. We will begin normal operations at 9:00 AM Mountain Time on November 30, 2020.
The MicroView is the first chip-sized Arduino compatible module that lets you see what your Arduino is thinking using a built-in OLED display. This USB programmer connects directly to the MicroView and lets you not only program the module, but use it to interface with your computer, Rapsberry Pi, or other USB device. The programmer has both male and female headers which allow it to be plugged into a MicroView module and a breadboard at the same time, making prototyping quick and easy.
If you want to learn more about the MicroView, check out the Kickstarter page.
Note: A MicroView OLED Arduino Module is NOT included with this USB Programmer. Check the Recommended Products section below to find one!

This USB programmer along with a MicroView (DEV-12923) form a complete Arduino programming package for the next step beyond the SIK. Push the long header pins into a breadboard, add a USB extension cable (CAB-00517) and you have an easy to use development system.
Works very well with the microview. Is it also possible to use it to program other AVRs? (e.g., a bare 328 or some attiny's)
Programming the MicroView without this rig was a challenge. This is an easy-to-use programmer and it makes programming a lot more fun. If you are on the fence, my recommendation is to buy one with your MicroView.
Must have with microview.
I'd love to see Ruggeduino-like protection features built into this programmer. It'd allow a learning-safe development environment with the nice MicroView without wasting space and money adding it to the actual MicroView.
