Clever. I'll have to modify (after searching) the six-pin ISP header. Thanks.
Have you tried it with DIP sockets?
I see the hobby king cable mention needing to beused with an AVR programmer..etc..etc..
would the Arduino/IDE suffice in this instance as well? or does one need a special DEDICATED programing hardware?
take the 10-pin connector on the end.. stick header pins/jumpers to:1 - VCC 2 - MOSI 3 - GND 6 - RESET 8 - SCK 10 - MISOand connect to my Arduino board to: (respectively matching above)+5vD11GNDRSETD13D12
and connect to my Arduino board to: (respectively matching above)+5vD11GNDD10 - This needs to generate the reset signal to the target.D13D12
Edited my layout a bit, and will see how it works. Yes the diode is for testing purposes, so I know it's flashed before soldering it on an important board. I first designed it to sit inside the perimeter of the UNO, but then changed it so it sets on pins 8 thru 13, on the outside, with the chip on the very outside of the little 1" square board. I have a tiny spring clamp, about like a clothes pin, I can clamp the chip on with that, visually inspect it for squareness, and flash away. I'll let you know how it works in about a month.
