I have this AVR programmer, which I set up as STK500 in Atmel Studio.
All this works fine until I need to do mass programming with different EEPROM contents.
So if I do no changes to the toolchain that I have, I will need to:
- Edit EEPROM hex file (taking care of the checksum and the data consistency)
- Pick this file with the Atmel Studio programming dialog
- Do the EEPROM burn
And all this for each device (which amount is hundreds or even thousands).
All this will be very time consuming and potentially error vulnerable. So I thought of a software which I will be able to create and communicate with the programmer directly (not through Atmel Studio).
Probably I can use a command line interface (found this here) but I wasn's able to find STK500.exe file on my computer.
I'd even think about making a programmer by my self (at the AVR pin level the interface looks pretty simple) and communicate through the COM-port.
Please share some of your thoughts on the subject.
