Topic: what is the recommended isp for general use? (328 and 2560) (Read 3368 times) previous topic - next topic


Well since the bootloader is last shouldn't that alone prove to be a test as over the 128kb limit?


AVRISPmkII. It's the standard. It is reliable. And it can vary its clock speed as well as measure the target voltage.

As I posted in another thread, I got one of those recently and simply can't get the Mac to recognize it. So it may well be fine for Windows. I got no response either to a query about what to do about that. And the Atmel website is strangely silent about Mac support.

Personally I find, for the occasions when I need to program via SPI, the USBtinyISP works pretty well. Sometimes I have to unplug and replug it to be recognized, but apart from that.
Please post technical questions on the forum, not by personal message. Thanks!
