Hi, Im a bit concernd.
I bought some bundles of m8s a while ago They have all worked well. Ive even taken to make a PCB.
Now I have avrdude giving "not responding " rc -1 , "please check.." etc. The thing is that I have checked the programmer, and it works find with other
setups (same conctact layout, actually the identical PCB ), i have measured the paths for power supply, and for the programmer from connectors to the chip,
all seem fine.
Im hessitant, but tend to lean against the m8 being faulty...., I rather not though because I dont think the PCB will stand a shift of chip (throughhole DIP), the pads will go.
Any good thinking that could save the situation ?
