This new version uses an SMD 5x2 header. This is a simple to use USB AVR programmer. It is low cost, easy to use, works great with AVRDude, and is tested extensively on a Windows desktop. Based on Dick Streefland’s USBtiny and Limor Fried’s USBtinyISP. This is a low-cost programmer designed for those on a tight budget.

This programmer works really well for ATmega168 and ATmega328 and should work with all the AVR micros supported by AVRDUDE.

This board is buffered and power protected so that you can do some really evil things to the programmer without killing it. It is fast! One of the greatest features of this board is the ability to power the target (up to 500mA) from the programmer.

Note: This product is a collaboration with Limor Fried. A portion of each sales goes back to them for product support and continued development.

Note: The drivers link has been updated below to be Windows 7 compatible.


  • Standard AVR ISP programmer
  • ATtiny2313 with USBtiny firmware preloaded
  • Buffered output
  • PTC fuse protected power
  • Programmer can power target
  • Supports ATmega168/328 and many others
  • Two status LEDs
  • Both 10-pin and 6-pin targets supported (cable included)

We dont think its the firmware that causes the issue. Some computers these days are coming with usb ports that dont supply the full 500mA, required to power this and the hardware. Especially usb ports that arent seated directly to the motherboard, like th

Problem with x64 bit Windows
Sunday, 18 September 2011  |  Matthew

This worked great straight away on my Laptop with Windows 7 32bit but had an issue with my desktop running Windows 7 64bit, to get around this I downloaded a more up to date version of LibUsb from here
