Open Programmer PIC and Atmel

An open source USB programmer for PIC micros, I2C EEPROMs, some ATMEL micros, generic I2C/SPI devices and (soon) other devices.

Open Programmer PIC and Atmel

  • Completely free and Open Source (including firmware)
  • Programs PIC10-12-16-18, 24xxxx I2C EEPROMs, some ATMEL micros, communicates with generic I2C & SPI devices (see supported devices)
  • USB interface, HID class (same as keyboards, mice, etc.)
  • Self powered
  • Doesn't need drivers
  • Built from easy to find components (estimated cost ~10€)
  • Hardware generated timings for maximum speed and reliability (writes a 18F2550 in 15s, 8s under Linux)
  • Doesn't saturate your CPU and doesn't suffer when other programs are running
  • Open source control programs for Linux and Windows
