I just purchased an STK600 (Atmel programmer for AVR8/32b) and a bunch of ATtiny85 chips in a DIP8 package.
The documentation of Atmel is really outdated on the routing and socket cards to use. From what I understood, I choose pick a ATSTK600-RC02 as routing card, and ATSTK600-SC01 as socket card.
Now for my final project, I would like to use the SOIC8 package of my ATtiny85, but I cannot find the proper routing and socket cards to use.
Atmel mapping of chip to routing/socket card does not mention the SOIC8 packages of the ATtiny85, only DIP8. (not to mention all the dead links... (http://www.atmel.com/webdoc/stk600/stk600.introduction_devicesupport.html)
I guess I could take the somehow generic ATSTK600-SC11 as socket card, but its documentation states "SOIC 14/20/24/32", so I am not even sure I will be able to have a proper pinout for my SOIC8 there. I have some intuition that tells me the ATSTK600-RC46 could be used as routing card, but again the documentation states it is designed for DIP14.
I am really lost here, the documentation from Atmel is full of dead links, I guess because of the move to the microchip website. And there are really little documentation on internet on these chips and how to program them. I am just beginning the direct chip programming, coming from the Arduino world, so since this is a significant investment, I really would not want to buy useless routing/socket cards.
Any help greatly appreciated!
