Accessories and Adapters

Extra USB Hand Held 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.

Available adapters

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 Available Adapters

Here are some popular adapters.

6-Way DIL adapter

6 x 1-way leads - included

6-Way Micromatch connector

1.27mm Adapter

UPDI Interface
The programmer comes with a flying lead adapter and 3 wires can be connected for UPDI programming - Blue is UPDI, green is VCC and brown is GND.

For 6-way UPDI (2.54mm/0.1") connection, use 12V UPDI adapter

For 10-way 1.27mm UPDI interface, use AVR ICE Adapter

This has this pinout (same as Atmel ICE AVR connector)

avr ice pinout

Custom Adapters
If you need any other type of connector, we can supply all sorts of custom adapters - see Custom Connectors

JTAG Interface
See JTAG Adapter for ready made JTAG adapter

See JTAG Pinouts PDF file for details of pin wiring.

Custom Adapters
If you need any other type of connector, we can supply all sorts of custom adapters - see Custom Connectors

Connections for ATE

AVR V3 handheld programmer can be used as a programming interface for ATE systems, using Labview, C or other programming language. The programmer has an ATE connection point on PCB that can be connected for remote control.

It has switch input to start programming and Status output showing programming, pass and fail. 8-way programmer slot select is also on connector.
