I built Usbasp and it worked just fine. You just need to have some means of programming the chip the first time. Works just fine with avrdude.

But if you have a hardware serial port (not usb-rs232 converter) then you can use ponyprog´s SIProg to program your chips. It is just a few components and it works with avrdude as well.

I use a USBtiny, cost me ~£11 or there abouts with a few 328p uCs bundled in, in addition to a 10/6 pin converter. Note that the USBtiny cannot program all AVRs.

Not worth the hassle building in my opinion. I used to build my own programmers, but I do not think it was worth the effort anymore.

Not when you can get a serial programmer for $29 and the Assembly software is free from Atmel!!! Of course, serial ports are disappearing... #### RichTheDude ##### Active Member I actually paid £16.99 for the USBtiny with 3 ATMEGA328Ps. That is$27.99.

I use WinAVR, which has been great.
