Hi fellow freaks,
Looking to see if anyone has done this, before jumping into the project.
We need to record a board serial number either into the flash or eeprom so it can be read and displayed via a serial data stream sent out the usart.
One idea is to place a bar code label on the board and then scan it and send the serial number via a serial connection to the atmega and record this to the eeprom, but not all systems have a serial data in available on the board, but all have an isp connection.
We normally use atmega48/88/168/328's and program them in production using dos batch files, and the stk500 command line programming using avrisp mkii's.
Any ideas are welcome.
