How-to install open source USBasp and USBtiny drivers on Windows

Ray writes with this technique for installing open source drivers on Windows. I came across a surprisingly simple approach to installing USBasp and USBtiny drivers for all versions of Windows — XP, 7, 8, 8.1, whether 32-bit or 64-bit, all inclusive! As you may know, installing open-source drivers such as USBasp and USBtiny have been […]

Using a USBASP v2.0 as a cheap ATmega8 Arduino platform

JohnLittle writes: I finally got round playing with my AVRASP v2.0 boards. The ones Sleepwalker3 mentioned. Thanks mate! I bought three USBASP v2.0 on ebay for under £1.50 each. They each came with a short cable (5×2 sockets at each end). However, they do not come with the JP2 header soldered on. Solder it or […]

2.4 megasamples per second continuous AVR logic capture

From the comments on our earlier Turning the Freedom board into a Logic Analyzer post, Ralph Doncaster writes: For situations where the samples will fit in RAM, this is good. For long sampling periods I used a USBasp and a PL-2303HX to make a logic analyzer that can sample 2 lines at 2.4 msps or 8 […]
