Hiya,

I like to breadboard a project whilst developing an idea. Recently I've got hold of some 40 PDIP AVR's with JTAG. I've not used JTAG at all. I don't particularly like having lots of jumper wires hanging out of plugs/sockets.
I've seen several of these adapters available on the net...

Question: anybody know of a UK supplier of adapters like these that don't cost the earth? My google-fu has failed to locate any :(

Yes. For ISP I use these...

However, I don't think these are suitable for JTAG. Ideally I'm using (or want to) AVR Dragon with a 'standard' pinout. I've not actually checked the pinout, but suspect it's not suitable (due to the number of ground connections tied together). If I'm wrong about this, would somebody please correct me?
