I want to know how to edit, compile, dumping program into the micro controller. Also tell me which software's I need to have and what purpose do they serve. As I said I'm a newbie. Please suggest clear steps to enter into avr programming. Also suggest some projects to start with. Here I'm Providing Atmega8l development. Please help asap

Atmel have some videos on YouTube about starting with Atmel Studio.

 

BTW usually the only "tricky bit" is getting the HEX file you build burned into the AVR, what programmer are you planning to use? USBAsp or something else?

Programmer means what? I have Usb connection with the development board itself. Isn't it sufficient. I've been through those tutorials. I know c programing. I want to know how to transfer my program into chip and make it work for me. Please see the pic i provided.

No one here is psychic. We can't possibly know what development board you have or what kind of programmer it has built in until you tell us the model or give a link to more details about it.

It would be a lot more helpful if you provided a link to the full details about the board - on the suppliers website.

 

In particular, the schematic (aka "circuit diagram") of the board.

 

It's also a lot more helpful to embed the pictures in your post where we can see them - instructions here: http://www.avrfreaks.net/comment...

 

 

EDIT

Is it this board: https://www.robomart.com/avr-dev... ?

 

If so, then there's a lot of downloads on the product page. Doesn't none of those contain instructions on how to program the AVR?

 

The product page says "in-System Programming by On-chip Boot Program" but does not give any details beyond that. I'm guessing details are in one of the downloads. Unfortunately we cant have a closer look since all downloads seems to require logging in..

As of January 15, 2018, Site fix-up work has begun! Now do your part and report any bugs or deficiencies here

No guarantees, but if we don't report problems they won't get much of  a chance to be fixed! Details/discussions at link given just above.
