Using AVR-USBasp to Program Arduino

5116-600x800

Generally, there are two methods to load the program into Arduino: USB/Serial Communication method ISP method The first method is the most common method, which implemented using USB-to-serial adapter chip/converter. For example, CT-UNO is using FTDI FT23x chips which is a popular USB-to-serial adapter chip, and BBFuino requires UC00A USB-to-serial converter to load the program. While […]
