Hi,  I'm just an electronics hobbiest and although I have some background in PICs, I'm planning to study AVRs as it seems that most of the good projects always comes out first implemented in AVRs.  Can someone recommend me a good link for a DIY programmer for AVRs.

Thanks in advance.

You can used STK200/300 with only 74HCT244 or similiar like:
74HC245(much from old computer boards...)
74HCT541
.etc

Hi all,
           I've builded this programmer myself. It's an ISP USB programmer (no need for external powersupply.. just plug-in to the USB port).  It works very well for me.  You maybe interested...  There is one drawback about building this programmer though.  You need to find a way to program (hex code which is downloadable from the website) the ATMEGA8 on the programmer board.

Hello,
I strongly recommends to build USBasp. It's simple, very fast and will be supported in future. Build it on breadboard, it's still simple or if you want to build PCB, choose one of implementation. I've made custom PCB based on http://www.fischl.de/usbasp/usbasp_gr.rar, by adding zener diodes and reset button. I successfully build one (by toner transfer) and it's working like charm. When target chip is running more than about 4MHz, you can use fast SCK. This would shorten programing time under 2s. I attached my version of USBasp board in Eagle, excel sheet with prepared labels to stick to ISP cable, and original firmware and driver package.

hi  please consider to use AVRPROG as ISP AVR programmer.If using codevision AVR at setting programmer choose Atmel AVRprog(AVR910)

Hi, AVR910 isn't ideal choice. I have one and when new chip arrives, you have to reprogram firmware of programmer for support of new devices. But new firmware isn't released by atmel. I have problem with this when I accidentally destroyed my AT90S8515. New one was ATmega8515 which was not supported by AVR910. I have to borrow another programmer to update my own. I don't recommend it. And it is slow.
When you need it USB, you have to use converter (FTDI, Prolific...). USBasp is much better. Works perfect also on linux.

hi ambo,
For the first time i've build ponyprog programmer... very simple programmer and no processor...
Now i am using USBasp programmer  which i build by help ponyprog programmer..
USBasp is AVR device programmer via USB interface, and have more AVR device we can program using this programmer..

Here the file about USBasp

Hi

I think STK200/300 is good and easy for building.

HI!

I would recommend USBProg from Embedded Projects. It works fine and you can download many firmwares for it, for example: ISP, OpenOCD debugger, USB to RS232 converter and so on, the only bad thing is with it, that it is relativly expensiv because the ftdi chip. And you have to program a bootloader for the atmega32.

Good luck!

Thank you all for your replies.  Now I'm torn between USBASP and USBPROG.  But I think I will build a USBASP first as its much simpler.

AVR JTAG CLONE WOULD BE BETTER CHOICE

We use parallel port AVR programmer, just connector, wire, some resistor, and no other parts, works great and cheap.  works with most of the compilers/tools.  just search the web. (your computer should have a parallel port)

If you are a beginner then Ponyprog is the easiest to begin with. The serial programmer circuit on the pony programmer website is very easy to make and works pretty well. It supports pretty much all of the widely used AVRs. Its FREE too

Hope this info is useful!

Good Luck!

You can make hardware and software by yourself.
