AVR and XMEGA 8-way Handheld Programmer

New version of Kanda 8-way AVR handheld programmer with AVR ISP and JTAG programming plus XMEGA PDI and JTAG programming support. This version works with all existing Kanda PC USB dongles. Each of the 8 slots can hold up to 512KBytes for code and data EEPROM, enough for all ATxmega and ATmega2561 flash and EEPROM.

8-way Handheld Programmer Benefits

This 8-way standalone programmer makes it simple to update firmware in both Atmel ATxmega and AVR microcontrollers. You select which of the 8 slots is needed with a rotary switch, then you plug it into the target and press the button. That's all you need to do.

You load your firmware, fuse settings etc. for each slot 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 do not have a Kanda USB dongle already, you need a starter kit instead
