Hey all, newbie to the forums here. I'm a student used to working with PICs and I've got a big product I'm working on which I've decided requires the power and speed of the AVR architecture.
I know this may sound bizarre - but I'd like to ask if anyone could recommend a SPEEDY in circuit programming method to me. I've built an in circuit PIC programmer and its painfully slow - it locks the computer up for the entire programming time also - and thats programming only a measely 8k. I think I would go insane waiting several minutes for each of the thousands of times I will have to program a mega128 for this product.
Bootloader or regular programming is fine... thanks for any help!
