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)

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.
