Recommended Programmers

It's not difficult to to see the USBAsp programmer seems to be a favorite. But all indication are the programmer has been deprecated. But I'm open to comments on this.

Assuming there is an equivalent or better could anyone recommend an equivalent or better in about the same price range.

Thanks Al

Pololu's little programmer, inexpensive, free shipping.

But all indication are the programmer has been deprecated.

Could you write more about the indications.

I am using USBasp and I cannot complain. Arduino as ISP also do the same job. It is just slower.

The SW based USB stack is reported to have problems with modern host-side controllers, so you want to find a programmer with real HW USB support, like the pololu or a Microchip SNAP.

The Pololu programmer is by a large margin the best programmer I have used.

You can slow it right down so that it copes with less than ideal wiring setups.

Is a USB-Serial programmer as well.
