  • I was going to write a review in the Reviews section on this product but it will not allow me to for some reason. So I’ll post it here.

    I purchased this product as a programmer for the Atmel ATMEGA328P. I had a little difficulty figuring out the USB driver installation, but finally got it to install.

    So far I’ve used to to reload the Arduino boot loader as well as with AVRdude and Atmel Studio. This thing works flawlessly! Very nice solution and the price is perfect.

    Would highly recommend this wonderful low cost programmer to anyone interested in getting into the Atmel AVR (I’m a PIC & MCS-51 guy just getting into AVR’s).

  • Just purchased this kit for the electronics repair shop that I work at. Was very simple to assemble and it worked on the first try.

    I love the concept of it, and I love the functions available on the unit (the sweep mode is awesome). The waveform output isn’t all that clean however. On an analog scope it doesn’t appear that they filter the wave all that well as I can still see some jagged-ness in the wave. Selecting voltage outputs in the mV range yields a very noisy looking wave. My PIC-based PWM 1kHz sine wave generator puts out a much cleaner sine wave than this thing does.

    I’ve never worked with the AVR micro, but I just might start learning it in hopes of maybe rewriting the firmware for this thing for a cleaner output.

No public wish lists :(
