Kanda LPT AVR programmer software will NOT work in 64-bit Windows OS, even in XP 32-bit mode under 64-bit Windows7. For Windows 64-bit support, you will need our low cost USB programmer.

USB AVR Programmer - AVRISP-U


Kanda's low cost USB AVR ISP version is the direct replacement for the parallel port one. This programmer includes an AVRStudio plugin so it can be run from within AVRStudio as well as standalone. It is compatable with all STK200 and STK300 boards.

Our USB programmer includes all the functions of the older LPT port programmer but it also includes

  • AVR microcontroller identification
  • Automatic ISP speed setting for fastest programming speed
  • Lots of protection from faulty circuits
  • Can power AVR target board

What is AVR ISP?


It is an In System Programmer (ISP) used to program your AVR microcontroller in system, which means in your target circuit. This has many advantages, especially for firmware updates but you need to design your AVR ISP circuit correctly.

All AVR programmers have either a 6-way or 10-way header that must be included in your circuit for easy connection. You must also avoid having too much capacitance on programming lines or reset ICs and other circuits wired incorrectly. Please see our Guide to AVR ISP Circuits for more information.
