I have just shifted a couple of our products from PIC to AVR ( Mega8515 and Mega88 ) . For our first production lot of 1000 Nos. , the programming of fuse bits and lock bits was very tedious , to say the least . In PIC , there is a concept of :
a. defining the programming of configuration bits in the programme file itself.
b. The IDE remembers 'things' for every product as a workspace.
.....which make production runs easy..
My question is :
Is there any easy way ( or commercially available programmers ) for production activity , which can make life simple ?
All inputs will be greatly appreciated :D
