If you’ve ever wanted a stand alone AVR programmer, that is super easy to use, you’ve come to the right place!
This guide will show you how to turn any CircuitPython powered board with 4+ GPIO pins into an AVR progammer all on its own. No software like avrdude is needed, this software will program the chip all on its own, just drag the HEX file onto the CircuitPython disk drive.
Perfect to putting bootloaders on empty chips, or field-reprogramming a project!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
