Essential Programming Tools


ATtiny Programing Hardware

You could wire the simple ATtiny programming circuit on a bread board, or you could construct your own, but the parts below are inexpensive and make programming chips a convenient thing to do ATTiny2313 target board with 20-pin ZIF socket, 6-pin programming header, and break away female headers

ATmegaXX8 Programing Hardware

You could wire the simple ATmegaXX8 programming circuit on a bread board, or you could construct your own, but the parts below are inexpensive and make programming chips a convenient thing to do ATMegaXX8 target board with 28-pin ZIF socket, 6-pin programming header, and 28 break away female headers

AVRDude Problem With ATMega328 (No "P") Parts

I bought some "ATMega328" (not the pico power version "ATMega328P") parts but I kept getting a signature error from AVRDude ...

Alternative Programing Hardware Kits

These kits contain some of the parts above (and more) and include a single part (ATtiny2313 or ATmega328P) as well

Notes

The HAKKO FX-888 is a really nice soldering station for not too much money
The HAKKO FX-888D is the successor to the above with digital temperature readout for about the same money
The PanaVise Model 201 makes soldering a smaller board with "non-flat" parts on it a lot easier
A Flourescent Magnifying Swing Arm Clamp Mount Lamp brings light and magnification to smaller parts and projects
This Resistor Lead Forming Tool is very nice when you have to form more than a couple resistors (and similarly shaped parts)
