Inexpensive multi-programmer update

An update of the inexpensive, medium-speed AVR/PIC/CPLD/Arduino programmer is posted in the forum. This programmer is designed for people who don’t own a programmer, and just want to rescue a bricked PIC or AVR.

This version takes into account the pin connection diagram MichaelZ outlined during our last design review. The update has a single 2×10 header that breaks out all the FT232 signals. It should work ‘out of the box’ with apps that program AVRs, Arduinos, MSP430, JTAG, CPLDs, and more. We’ll also add PIC programming support with piratePICprog.

Large schematic and PCB images, and Eagle files, are in the forum. There’s also a development wiki with more links for this project.
