Programming an ATmega8 with a Bootloader: Bonus MiniCore

I just came across to another way of bootloading ATmega8: probably the best. There is a Github (https://github.com/MCUdude/MiniCore) that is supporting bootloaders for ATmega8, ATmega48, ATmega88, ATmega168 and ATmega328. There is also support for other AVRs , check https://github.com/MCUdude All you have to do is install the library and bootload using another Arduino (Arduino as […]

Programming an ATmega8 with a Bootloader: Part IV

Arduino UNO as ISP, OptiLoader sketch and Arduino IDE 1.6.5. This is one of the 4 methods I will be describing for programming an ATmega8 with a Bootloader. I have split this instructable in four sections so that the reader can directly access its preferred method. In this section, we will use arduino UNO, OptiLoader […]

Programming an ATmega8 with a Bootloader: Part III

USBTinyISP programmer, 16 MHz bootloader, modified board.txt (half speed) and Arduino IDE 1.0.5. This is one of the 4 methods I will be describing for programming an ATmega8 with a Bootloader. I have split this instructable in four sections so that the reader can directly access its preferred method. In this section, we will use […]

Programming an ATmega8 with a Bootloader: Part II

USBTinyISP programmer, modified 8 MHz bootloader and Arduino IDE 1.0.5. This is one of the 4 methods I will be describing for programming an ATmega8 with a Bootloader. I have split this instructable in four sections so that the reader can directly access its preferred method. In this section, we will use USBTinyISP programmer, modified […]

Programming an ATmega8 with a Bootloader: Intro

In previous series, I’ve showed different ways to upload code into an ATmega8. Here I will show how to load ATmega8 with a bootloader in order to program the MCU directly using serial communication. The bootloader is a small piece of software that allows your Arduino board to communicate with the Arduino IDE when you […]
