I have a AVRISP MK II programmer and want to make a target board for the ATMEGA 328.  The MK II requires the chip to have its own power source but I can't find how much power is consumed during a burn.  My one and only arduino board is currently in use and can't be disturbed for the next 2 weeks, or I'd put a meter on it to test it.

I can't find how much power is consumed during a burn. 


I think that's because it's not worth mentioning, ie. negligible.

FWIW I just uploaded a 28k sketch to a mega328 via ISP and there was no real difference on the meter while it was uploading.
No, I don't answer questions sent in private messages (but I do accept thank-you notes...)

Thanks fungus.  It's worth a lot.  That was my guess.  Just trying to be thorough.
