AVR and XMEGA Handheld Programmer Kit
Supports all AVR and ATxmega Microcontrollers including UPDI, TPI and PDI interfaces.
- AVR Serial Programming
- AVR UPDI Interface
- ATtiny TPI interface
- ATxmega PDI support
- AVR and ATxmega JTAG programming, optional adapter needed.
This starter kit includes a Kanda PC USB dongle that will work with all our handheld programmers.
Handheld Programmer Benefits
This standalone programmer makes it simple to update firmware in both Atmel ATxmega and AVR microcontrollers. You plug it into the target and press the button. That's all you need to do.
You load your firmware, fuse settings etc. from the PC using a Kanda USB dongle and simple software. Once it is loaded, you can program as many targets as you want.
If you already have a Kanda USB dongle from a starter kit, it will work with this new version, so you can just purchase the programmer.

- All settings (fuses, filenames etc) can be saved to a file for easy distribution of setup
- Error indication with red/green LED
- Dimensions: Imperial - 4.5 x 2.5 x 1 inches
- Dimensions: Metric- 106mm x 58mm x 25mm
- Optional adapter needed for JTAG programming, see Product Accessories
- Includes flying lead adapter for ATxmega PDI and AVR UPDI programming
- Includes USB dongle for loading the programmer
- Load Atmel Studio ELF production files
- Load programmer from command line or batch file
- Limit number of programming cycles
- Optional adapter for ATtiny UPDI 12V reset pulse
- Android Device App to reload programmer remotely
The USB loader in this kit works in Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Win7, Win8 and Win10, 32 and 64-bit versions.
Save programmer contents to a PRG file, send it to an Android device and programmer can simply be reloaded with new contents. This gives you much greater flexibility.
