The MPLAB® Snap In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer allows affordable, fast and easy debugging and programming of most PIC®, dsPIC® and AVR flash MCUs, using the powerful graphical user interface of MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE) version 5.05 or later.
But a power loss to the PI can be so catastrophic that I don't want to go through that again. I have had several recent power outages. And 'lost' the Pi on each and every one.
Raspberry Pi are popular due to a video camera interface, FOSS image recognition, and embedded use cases (therefore power failures due to battery malfunction or deep discharge)
But is was enjoyable.
Thanks largely to you guys.
If you want to learn AVR I'd get a JTAG model where debugging is the easiest of all. Wouldn't mess about with resource limited Tiny's or some even more limited models that don't have OCD at all.
Ah, but the challenge is in getting control systems as lean, mean, as small as possible.
I know a guy who put a Porsche engine into a VW Beetle.
I'd be more interested in putting a Fiat Cinquecento engine into a Porsche.
And getting it to do what *I* needed.
As a Porsche owner/driver I cannot help but think I would never give up the almost unlimited power available to me when I actually need it. No one says you have to use it all the time but on the odd occasion it's nice to be able to push the throttle and know you will have extraordinary acceleration if you need it.
