AVR Hardware Beginner Board?

Postby Mercfh » Tue Oct 25, 2011 8:29 am

So I was checking out this site:
http://www.avr-asm-tutorial.net/avr_en/ ... index.html

It was kinda showing the schematic for a "Starting" AVR board. However the schematic doesn't seem to match up with the pictures (or at least as far as I can tell, im a beginner when it comes to this stuff)
Also alot of this looks pretty old, so there might be a more "up to date" hardware schematic for getting started with AVR basics (I want to start out with some Assembly.....then move onto normal C which im familiar with)

So is there any websites/schematics that show setting up your own AVR board (and possibly programmer (i've seen a few programmer schematics)). Alot of the ones I find when I search around don't really have the proper components (Decoupling capacitors and such) attached. Im looking for like a "proper" base schematic.

Thanks.

If you have a parallel port, the SP12 programmer works very well:

I used it for a year or so. I use an Atmel Dragon, now, which also has in-circuit debugging.

DId you consider an AVR with a pre-programmed serial port boot loader so that you don't need an ISP? Lots of these around, e.g., ZBasic, Arduinos, "Teensy" (http://www.pjrc.com/teensy, a particularly good value), etc. Atmel AVR Studio 4 (free) with GCC can do serial port downloading, as can freeware "AVRdude". Lots on this on AVRfreaks.net user forum.
