Hi guys, I have a STK500, whenever I want to programme a chip, I take it out of the circuit its in, plug it into the STK500, programme it, then take it out again and put it in the circuit to test it.
From reading the forums Ive always seen some catch phrases like ISP, or JTAG. I looked them up on wiki, and it seems like STK500 uses ISP, and the JTAG is for debugging.
I searched Atmel Application Notes and Other Documents and read the following two docs but i didnt learn much from them:
Atmel’s Self-Programming Flash Microcontrollers
AVR ISP Schematic
Is there a way/is it possible that I can leave a few dedicated pins of the ATtiny2313 aside for programming, and bring a few lines from my STK500 to my breadboard, and programme it in circuit, ie so I dont have to unplug it (and leave say the LCD and buttons etc in place)?
I feel like such a noob when I try and read up on these things, thanks for any help!
