    Hi
    I am new to the usage of microcontrollers.
    So i have a doubt in what programmers can be used to download the compiled code from the PC into it.

    I have a USB to serial cable. When i went through the manual of AVR butterfly it says that we can use this cable to program it.
    Refer
    http://www.dwelch.com/avr/

    I also found that the most common method to program the atmel is using the AVR ISP In-System Programmer
    Refer
    http://www.atmel.com/dyn/products/tools_card.asp?tool_id=2726

    So kindly let me know if I can use the USB to Serial cable itself to program my ATMEGA 324P (or) should i get the AVR ISP In-System Programmer (or) any other method is available?

    thanks

    Hello,
    Atmel Butterfly has some code in bootloader that helps to program it through the USART. So you should consider to make your own ISP or to buy it. There are many different variants, just try google. Also you can buy Atmel Dragon programmer. Dragon supports different variants of programming and debugging technics, like ISP, JTAG, high voltage. Very good and cheap programmer.

    You should be able to obtain an answer to your questions about the Butterfly AVR board from two sources. One is www.smileymicros.com and the other is www.avrfreaks.net.

    Here is a link to an FAQ section on smileymicro's website.
