Cheers,

Has anybody tried to port ATMel's own
AVROSP ("AVR Open-source Programmer",
see: http://www.atmel.com/dyn/general/tech_doc.asp?doc_id98%52 )
for Linux? It seems otherwise quite generic
code, except that the module SerialPort.cpp
is wholly Windows-specific, so I need just
to create the corresponding interface using
standard Posix-interface to RS232-port.
Other possibility would be to run the
included Windows/DOS-executable AVRDUDE.exe
under WinE in Linux, provided there doesn't come
any problems with serial port settings, etc.
Has anybody done that?

Otherwise I would be quite happy to use
Avrdude ( http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/avrdude/ ),
except that I don't see whether it supports ALSO
programming with an AVR109-style
self-programming bootloader (i.e. by uploading
stuff to that bootloader via the serial port,
without any intermediate "programming hardware").
See Atmel's "Self Programming Application Note" at:
http://www.atmel.com/dyn/general/tech_doc.asp?doc_id80%53


By fgrepping avrdude's source code (and NEWS-file) I get
an impression that avrdude _does_ support programming
through serial port and AVR910-style programmer,
built according to Atmel's "In-System Programming Application Note"
http://www.atmel.com/dyn/general/tech_doc.asp?doc_id80%87
I.e. the "standard" serial programmer which connects via an RS-cable to
the PC, and to the programmed board (with the main AVR to be programmed)
with "SPI-cable", that in turn is connected to
MISO, MOSI, SCK, RESET, VCC and GND-pins of
the processor.


Yours,

Antti

Quoted text here. Click to load it

AVRDUDE can be used with AVR910-style programmers. There is also
support for the Butterfly bootloader. And you can use non-standard
baudrates with all RS232-programming protocols ;-)

Don't forget to look at the docs for performance hints.
