Program your AVR with PICkit2

in AVR by Ian | 6 comments

PK2AVRISP is software that lets a PICkit2 program AVR microcontrollers with no hardware or firmware changes. It decodes commands sent to a virtual serial port that emulates an AVR ISP programmer, and translates them to Pickit2 commands. It’s compatible with existing AVR development apps like AVRStudio, AVRDude, and CodeVision AVR.

    The PICkit2 is a wonderful device. It’s able to program PICs in “offline” mode (download once to the PICkit2, program more chips by just pushing the button on it). It’s able to work as a simple logic analyzer and serial port emulator. It’s cheap. And the design is open (schematics, etc. provided by Microchip).

    AVR compatibility makes it even better.

    I shall try it out, but it looks promising. My biggest problem was to use a USB AVR programmer on a WIN7x64 OS. Hope this allows me to…………

    My PICkit2 works on WIN7x64 , will this also work ?

    The link PK2AVRISP needs updating. The site has moved.

    Greetings…

    pickit2.isgreat.org had 2 programs, one for burn AVR microcontrollers and other to convert Pickit2 in a Virtal Serial Port, ¿Does anybody have the second program?

    Thanks in advance

    I don’t suppose anybody has written a similar prog for the Pickit3? I expect not, so many reports of people saying how the Pickit2 was so much better than the Pickit3, except that it can’t do the high end PIC32′s.
