For ATxmega support and 512KB memory for ATmega2561, see HH0110X
Handheld AVR Programmer with 256KB of memory plus USB PC interface and software. Load the programmer from a PC using the USB PC interface and the simple Wizard Software and then you do not need PC again. The Hand Held AVR Programmer is a completely portable AVR ISP and you just plug it into your target boards and program/verify Flash and/or EEPROM and Fuses on your target AVR microcontroller with a single button press. Supports up to 256KBytes of code and data EEPROM.
The PC interface is USB port.

Accessories and Adapters
Extra USB Hand Held AVR Programmers
You only need one starter kit for as many programmers as you require
If you do not want to use the internal 9V PP3 battery, the power supply required is 9V with a 2.1mm Barrel connector, center positive, 300 mA minimum. These are available on the shop.
9V International Power supply
for use with this programmer.
We now have adapters to convert from the standard Kanda 10-way AVR ISP lead to different 6-way headers and different pitch - 1.27mm or 2.0mm.
Full List of Adapters Available
Here are some popular adapters.
6-Way DIL adapter
6 x 1-way leads
6-Way Micromatch connector
See JTAG Adapter
for ready made JTAG adapter
See JTAG Pinouts PDF file
for details of pin wiring.
If you need any other type of connector, we can supply all sorts of custom adapters - see Custom Connectors
