This shield I have made to program an ATMEGA168 with a TQFP32 package without soldering.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Intro
With this shield you can program an atmega168 microcontroller (µC) with a TQPF32 package without soldering. Just lay the chip on the top of the board and fix it with the coverplate. So you can program the µC with an ISP-Programmer.
With this shield you can programm
and maybe other µC.
With the two jumpers you can select the external oscillator or the internal.
Step 2: Needed Parts and Components
What do I need to create this shield:
- Soldering iron
- PCB etching machine
- UV exposure unit
- Drilling machine
- circular saw
- Double sided photoresist board
- 1mm cable for the via's
- Screws 3mm
- 8x round pvc spacer 7x5mm
- 2x 22pf Capacitors smd 1206
- 1KOhm Resistor smd 1206
- LED red smd 3528
- 16MHz Crystal smd
- 2x2 Pin male connector
- 2x3 Pin male connector
- 2 Jumpers
Step 3: Shematic and PCB
!!! PLEASE ATTENTION !!!
Be careful with the drilling the holse. The holes from the PCB and the plexiglas must be exactly similiar.
If they are not, than it will be a short-circuit and can be damage the µC.
Step 4: Plexiglas
To fixing the µC I used a plexiglas plate.
1. Cut the plate to 55x35mm.
2. Cuting out the template and fix it with some tapes
3. Drill the holes up to 4mm
