  • my PC doesnt have a RS232 pin so i have to connect through usb to serial converter, can you suggest me an alternative for AVR- PG1 programmer for programming AVR controllers
  • Maybe in this case, the best solution would be to build programmer for AVR microcontroller with USB interface... One simple example - AVR910...
