Ghetto AVR Programmer
Getting started with AVR microcontrollers on the cheap By Elliot Williams
Microcontrollers are so cheap these days. If only there were a way to program them up just as cheaply….
In this Instructable, find out how to build up a complete AVR microcontroller toolchain: compiler, programmer software, programmer hardware, and some simple demos to get your feet wet. From there, it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump to world domination with the help of servo-based 4-legged walkers: www.instructables.com/id/EYLB2BCA9BEUGCWIZL.
