Portable and Standalone Programmer Guide


Our popular keyfob and handheld AVR programmers are perfect for non-technical users. Once loaded from the PC, they can be taken anywhere for use in difficult environments such as kitchens or laundries. The target is programmed with a single button press, including data, fuses and lockbits. A green LED means pass and a flashing red LED means try again, what could be easier?

The keyfob version is tiny, just like a car key, low cost and very simple. The handheld version is larger, more robust with more protection against faulty circuits making it ideal for production use as well as field updates.
