Little Wire – minimal AVR programmer and more

Posted on Friday, December 9th, 2011 in DIY by DP

The Little Wire is an open source AVR programmer that’s packed full of features:

  • An AVR programer
  • Four digital GPIO pins
  • ADC with 10 bit resolution
  • Two parallel hardware PWM outputs
  • An USB interface
  • A SPI interface

It is built to be DIY friendly by using all through hole components. It is also an open source hardware project, and different versions are already popping up in the forum.

    This can NOT program HVSP (fuses). Right?

  3. Hi Drone,

    This programmer CAN burn fuses, but it can NOT act as a High Voltage Programmer.

    I don’t think it can change all fuses. For example, I seem to remember you must use HVSP to re-purpose the RESET pin on the likes of the ATtiny45/85.
