Im from the Philippines and got my STK500 late 2003 from a local distributor. I used it until late 2004, when suddenly my adaptor (locally purchased) went to a 20V output, thus feeding my STK500 with 20V! Now, it cant be detected by the AVR studio the last time i tried it. I think the microcontroller that programs the target MCU was destroyed after that spike in input voltage.
Is there a way it can be repaired in the Philippines? If not, i figured ill buy a new development board, say the AVR Dragon. Any suggestions?
