That looks like a nice tool for those of our members interested in developing code and hardware on the AT89S AVR series it supports.

Have you built this item yourself? If so can you describe your experience for the benefit of our other members who may be interested in tackling something similar?

Thanks,

Hi,
I have personaly Built this Programmer, and it really works very well and simple to build. It also works with any USB to RS232 converter, But if you want to build it you would need a conventional Programmer to Program the AT89C2051 (Once).
 
Thanks for your share!
Did you develop the programmer software with VB??
Besides , can you share more detailed information for it---the code of firmware and Programmer? Thanks again!

Very interesting circuit. Will try it out.

Atmel has also some 8051s which can be directly programmed through the PC USB port without any programmer circuit. Check out Atmel AT89C5131.

The attached circuit shows the simplicity of the circuit using AT89C5131. Program downloading using a USB cable.

:)

Thank you for all the responses. Sorry I should have said it earlier, i am sourcing for my friend. He needs this for his automachine and he doesn't have the time to do it.

Can i know where can i purchased Atmel ET51, AT89C5131 or any other similar programmer? Or can anyone built it and sell it to me?

You can contact me at <SNIP>

You can buy them from http://www.mouser.com.

AT89C5131 is not a programmer. It is a 8051-based microcontroller which does not need a hardware programmer to burn the code. Just connect the USB port of the chip to the PC USB port and run the free programmer software (ATMEL FLIP).

Sir i rigged up this circuit. It is giving communication failure: reception error, then it is displaying No supported programmer detected. what may be the problem sir ? Please help.

sir i rigged up your circuit given in http://www.8052.com/users/AT89S52InSystemProg/ . The flash is burning for both AT89S51 and AT89S52. But the test program is not running. however the test program is running only once for a new AT89S51 only. Again if i burn the flash on same AT89S51 the test program is not working. Please help me sir.
Does the programmer programs and then verifies the flash image without any errors? What is the test program/firmware and is it possible that the circuit where u r testing ur firmware has some issues?

I was wondering if someone could mention some more of such Atmels (and preferably PICs aswell) that do not need a burner.

I am very new to μCs and it would be a great help if I could try my code without requiring an expensive burner

How much would you say an expensive burner is? And You also have the Arduino. That have a fair price. The cheapest one is this http://www.ti.com/tool/msp-exp430g2 $4.30

Even cheaper than the Atmel 89C5131 is the NXP 89LPC922. Both are 8051 derivatives. You do not need a programmer to burn the codes for the 89LPC922. A serial cable and a download software called the Flashmagic will do.

Hey I am talking about one that can do both Atmel and PIC at a time (like universal).

Thanks dear, I shall look into this IC.
