AVR Serial Port Programmer

Entire AVR programmer has been build with using common parts and fits in the case of the serial connector. The socketpcb has been created to fit a 28-DIP AVR ATmega8 microcontroller, but you can build a socket pcb for any other AVRmicrocontroller out there. This AVR programmer is compatible with a popular PonyProg software that shows you a statusb

ar of the programming progress. To be able to send hex file from your computer to AVR microcontroller you will need to download and install PonyProg2000. After the installation, the first thing you will need to do is configure PonyProg to work with our AVRProgrammer. To do this go to "Setup" menu and select "Interface Setup". The following window will be shown andhighlighted areas show you exactly which options should be selected. At this point PonyProg configuration is complete and we can open hex program with which AVR microcontroller will beflashed. Go to "File" menu, select "Open Program (FLASH) File. ", and point to the hex file to open it up. You should seehex numbers as shown on the screen below. If you haven`t connected AVR Programmer dongle to your computer`s serialport yet, then now is the time. Make sure that AVR Programmer is physically connected to your AVR microcontrollerthrough Socket PCB or through ICSP 6-PIN connector. Finally click on the highlighted icon "Write Program Memory(FLASH)", or go to "Command" menu and select "Write Program (FLASH)". Now sit tight, relax and watch the programming progress on the status bar. PonyProg will program AVR microcontrollerand verify if the hex file was transferred without any errors. For your information this process shouldn`t really take more than 10 to 30 seconds. This depends on the size of the program that you`re trying to flash. After programming is completed...
