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 […]

CIKU – Create New Project from Scratch

1

There are several return of CIKU board from customers, claiming the bootloader is corrupted. We have spotted a reason where user want to create their own project instead of using provided CIKU project. Unfortunately, they have overwrite CIKU bootloader inside PIC18F4550 and this cause CIKU can’t be detected when trying to enter bootloader mode. Today […]
