Chapter 2. Programming AVRs

In this chapter, you’ll get set up with everything you need for coding, compiling, and flashing your programs into the bare silicon of the AVR chips that are sitting on your desk right now. To do so, you’re going to need some hardware (a flash programmer) and some software (a code editor, C compiler, and the program that’ll communicate with the hardware flash programmer). Finally, you’ll need to hook up some wires from the programmer to the AVR chip and get set up with a power supply.

In this process, there are a lot of different approaches that will get you to the top of the same mountain. Ultimately, the different approaches are all basically the same at some abstract level, but we’ll step through some ...
