Woke up pretty late this morning and feeling bored, so I wasted an hour this morning building a simple in circuit serial programming interface for use with the PonyProg software to program the ATMEGA8 micro-controller.
I intended to use this programmer for ATMEGA8 micro-controller which I recently bough from eBay. For now, I need to create the interface and do some testing with PonyProg to see how it goes.
The circuit that I used is based on one published here which is based on one published on here with some minor modification.
It’s quite simple to build but the challenging part is fitting it in DB-9 hood.
