ok im looking into this product
all the work ive done with micros has been on a propeller board i built myself. im looking to get into avr as a second smaller micro for tasks that arent suited for the prop.
ive been looking into your usb programmer and have some questions.
#1 it says its also a dev board for the chip. when you change the jumpers to select development mode can it then jist be set back to a prpgrammer. to be more clear when programed as a dev board does that erase the programmer code, and the chip needs to be reflasbed with its oroginal code to become a programmer again.
#2 when a dev board do you need a second usb programmer to program it or can u program it through usb?
#3 will this program an arduino without switching to uart mode? and will this progam atiny atmega16 atmega128 and atmega324 and the attiny line?
#4 what advantages does the better sk500 programmer have over this one?
