And you want to use it with a newer AVR controller which is not supported by any of the 8 sockets on board?
And you do not own an STK505 extension board?
Welcome to my world until yesterday!
This is my first instructable which will describe how I helped myself yesterday. You might find an update on my blog as well...
Step 1: What you need
- some piece of prototype pcb board
- some strip of female pin header connectors (single or double-row)
- a socket for the controller, preferably a zif socket
- solder wire and a soldering iron
I used a narrow 28-pin DIP zero-insertion-force socket, similar to the famous Textool brand, but labeled as TFXTDOL. For a 28-pin socket you will need two 28-pin long strips of the female header. For the connection to the ISP10PIN header on the STK500 you will need another two pieces of 5x2 contacts.
