AVRprog2 is a fast USB 2.0 ICSP (In-Circuit Serial Programmer) for AVR microcontrollers. Vey fast, on-board USB 2.0 programmer with a simplified driver installation. Designed for In-Circuit Serial Programming (ICSP)


When connected to a prototype device, the AVRprog2 programmer becomes IN-SYSTEM programmer. With ZIF socket, it becomes a standard programmer used for a large-scale production.

One of the possible ways of connecting AVRprog2 to a microcontroller is via an IDC10 connector. Refer to figure on the right. You just have to place a 2x5 connector between the microcontroller and other on-board modules. By embedding the AVRprog2 connector you will be able to perform In-System AVR Programming.

A flat cable with an IDC10 female connector on its end is used here. When creating a target device, it is necessary to provide the appropriate 10-pin male connector with 2.54 mm spacing between pins on it. The connector pins should be connected to the microcontroller pins. Their position varies depending on the microcontroller's type and package.

With complementary software, the AVRprog2 programmer represents a great tool for all those working with Atmel's AVR microcontrollers. The microcontroller is connected to the AVRprog2 programmer via 6 lines. Two of them are +5V and GND, while others are MOSI, MISO, SCK and MCLR. Unlike programmers whose operation is based on bootloaders, and which need to put a part of their memory at bootload program's diposal, AVRprog2 programs microcontrollers externally so that the entire memory is available to the programmer.

The AVRprog2 programmer supports a wide range of microcontrollers including over 90 AVR microcontrollers. Newly released AVR microcontrollers will be supported by a new version of AVRFlash software that is updated regularly.

The AVRprog2 programmer is packed in the protective box along with the relevant documentation and product CD. This box is very resistant to all kinds of damages and shocks. The package contains:

  • AVRprog2 USB2.0 programmer.
  • USB cable.
  • CD with software and drivers.
  • Printed documentation that includes: AVRprog2 Manual and Quick Guide for Installing USB Drivers.
