AVR-ISP-MK2 supports in-circuit programming of Atmel 8-bit AVR microcontrollers using ISP, PDI or TPI interface. Using the free Atmel Studio (previously known as AVR Studio), you can program tinyAVR and megaAVR devices using the ISP Interface, tinyAVR devices using the TPI interface, and AVR XMEGA devices using the PDI Interface. The Atmel Studio online help contains the most current information and a complete list of supported devices.
You also can use AVR-ISP-MK2 with AVRDude (i.e. Arduino, GCC, LibUSB) if you install different firmware and drivers which can be downloaded below. See the user manual for instructions.
This programmer is based on the hardware of the AVRISP-MKII clone open-source project and the USB stack of the LUFA (Lightweight USB Framework for AVRs) project.
AVR In-System Programmer MkII Features
Note: The 6-pin connectors on this programmer are for PDI and TPI interfaces. If your target uses a 6-pin ICSP interface, you'll need the adapter that you can find in the Optional Recommended Products list below.
- Tested and working with AVR Studio 4, AVR Studio 5, and Atmel Studio 6
- Connects to PC via USB 2.0 Full Speed
- No need for external power supply as it takes the power supply from USB
- Uses Atmel's 2×5-pin ICSP and 2×3-pin PDI and TPI connector layouts
- Works with 5V and 3.3V targets (selectable by jumper) and can supply target with power (also selectable by jumper)
- Programs both Flash and EEPROM
- Supports fuses and lock bit programming
- Upgradeable for future device support
- Supports target voltages from 1.8V to 5.5V
- Adjustable ISP programming speed (50 Hz to 8 MHz SCK frequency)
- Two status LEDs (one orange, one red/green bi-color)
- Dimensions: 45 × 30 mm (1.7 × 1.2") + 20 cm (8") cables (one 6-pin, one 10-pin)
AVR In-System Programmer MkII Resources If your programmer is not recognized in Atmel Studio 6, download this firmware and follow the firmware update instructions in section 5.2 of the User Manual.
