Hi everyone. I ordered the ATAVRXPLAIN board from digikey.com yesterday and I have a few questions for those who already have this board up and running. I was reading the directions and the first few directions confuse me. I am not familiar with programming at all so taking out the pins, etc kinda scares me because I dont want to screw anything up.Sponsored Links
Remove the 2 jumpers from your XPLAIN board that are normally installed when you get it. Put one of the jumpers over PINS 1 + 2 (The pins circled in red on the picture) This will allow you to enter the programming mode to flash the chip.
How am I going to know which two jumpers came with the board..when I get it, will something be sticking out that should not be there and I have to remove them??
So what do I do, I take the two pins and I put them in 1 + 2
Also, the directions mentions when I connect the device to my PC not to allow it to update any drivers.. I have windows 7, when I plug something in it automatically starts searching for drivers, what do I do to cancel it?
Thanks so much!
