Important Note

You will need a USB Starter Kit to load this programmer. One USB Starter Kit will allow you to load as many USB Keyfob Mini-programmers as you want. This USB Keyfob can NOT be used with parallel port loader. The Starter kit comes complete with a USB Keyfob Mini-programmer.
Starter Kit

Purchase Options

You can also buy the USB Starter Kit with 5 Keyfob Mini-programmers.
USB Keyfob Field Service Pack
Extra Keyfob Mini-programmers are available in packs of 5, which gives you a big saving in cost.
USB Keyfob Mini-programmer Multi-pack

Handheld Programmer

The keyfob is NOT designed to cope with faulty target boards, so you should test or isolate target boards first, or use the handheld programmer instead.
A more robust Handheld programmer is available, which is ideal for use on the production line. It operates in the same way as the keyfob but has extra features for production use and 256Kb memory. This programmer is ideal for adding Boot Block code to ATmega128 devices.

6-Way adapters

We now have adapters to convert from the standard Kanda 10-way header to different 6-way headers.
6-Way DIL adapter
6 x 1-way leads
6-Way Micromatch connector

Overview of AVR Programmer Range

See Guide to AVR ISP Circuits for schematics of recommended AVR ISP circuits (new window).

See Overview of Kanda AVR Programmer Range

No Battery Requirement

The AVR target must be powered, which also powers keyfob. For programming un-powered target, you need Handheld Programmer.

When loading from PC, Dongle2 (introduced 2013) or Dongle3 will power the keyfob. If you have original Dongle (see label), you will need a battery or to purchase Dongle3 - see Product Accessories below.
