Hello! Long story short I am trying to dump the program from AT90USB646 as This IC is used on a device that is no longer being manufactured.

How would I do this?
What programmer & program do I need?
Will I be able to write the program to a blank chip and it will work?
And does anyone have a wiring diagram to connect it to the programmer?

Any help would be great! Thanks very much!

Hello,

Can you post a picture of this device you are looking to copy?

 

Long story short, you can read the part using any AVR compatible programmer(AVRISPMKII, Dragon, AtmelICE, UsbASP).  You can write this file to a blank part, will it work?  Unknown as it all depends if the original part has the lockbits programmed.  If those are programmed, you are pretty much out of luck doing it through programmers.

 

You can google AVR ISP interface, AVR JTAG interface for connections.

Thanks for your reply! The device is called the Demon Dual Nand. Here's a pic

There are two JTAG headers on the board.  I guess one of them is for the AVR.  YOu will need a Dragon, JtagICE3, or AtmelICE to do anything with that board.

 

I would bet that the Lockbits are programmed to prevent you from making copies of the device, but hey, maybe they forgot on that one..wink

Edit:

YOu can buy them here:

The devices creator has a list of places where you can buy it:

Yes I know some places where it can be bought but they are not being manufactured anymore so every where that did sell it marked the price up by a lot.
Thanks for your help Tho I will Definitely give it a try :)

Btw TX also has a Demon Tool box where you can update the chip and they provide the firmware.bin file for it. I wonder if I could use that and flash it to a new chip?
