This shield kit pack will allow you to turn any Arduino into an AVR chip burner! It is specifically designed for people who want to program Atmega328P's to turn them into Arduino bootloader chips using an AVR-ISP sketch, but it can also be used to make a 'standalone' AVR ISP programmer - so that you can program blank chips without a computer! Adafruit use this set up in the shop to program chips for Adafruit's kits. Adafruit even include a blank ATmega328P DIP chip so you can get to programming immediately!

If you want to program Arduino bootloaders onto chips, using the IDE, check out Adafruit's simple tutorial which shows how to solder up the kit and the sketch for bootloading
If you want to create a stand-alone AVR ISP programmer, Adafruit have a tutorial for that as well Note that this is a little more challenging to set up than the first tutorial above, because you'll need to paste in the HEX file, and set up the standalone programmer for your specific code. It's best used by advanced microcontroller geeks who are comfortable with looking up fuse settings!

Comes with:

You'll also need some solid core wire for the connections, soldering tools and basic hand tools. An Arduino is not included, you'll need one to plug the shield into, and a USB cable to program it as well.

  • Coffee Grinder With Arduino
  • Using a few bits and pieces, this ordinary coffee grinder now has two presets to run the motor for a programmable length of time. The idea being that the grinder running for a set amount of time will deliver a certain amount of coffee each button press meaning the beans can be stored unground, keeping them fresher for longer. I completed this project for a friend, Ian, who lives for coffee. Ian wanted the same functionality in h...
  • The Hipster Coaster
  • We wanted to make a interactive display of the fun that can be had with DIY projects to take to Sydney Mini Maker Faire. We decided to do so by utilising the TinkerKit Braccio from Arduino.org, alongside some 3D Printing ingenuity, for an engaging display for all ages. Enter the Hipster Coaster in all its glory.   All the parts were printed seperately on our family of Lulzbot 3D Printers, later stuck together using a mi...
