Yeah, +1. Have your beliefs, because without them we’re nothing, but grind your axe on your own axe grinder, not on someone else’s workbench.

I got this under the assumption that I could power the target circuit with this programmer (“no need for external power supply as it takes the power supply from USB” says the documentation on the Olimex site). However this doesn’t seem to be the case. I’m using the 6-pin connector, which powers my target circuit just fine with the “real” STK500. Am I missing something? Can anyone verify this or shed some light?
EDIT: After further reading, it seems that this programmer isn’t designed to provide constant power to the target circuit, but it DOES provide its own power for the purposes of programming the target chip.
