Hello AVR freaks,
I am a student and decided to design a system using the atmega1284p cause it is awesome, I really don't have any experience with microcontrollers and never programmed one but my issue currently is how to get the software on the uC,
my college has a pinmaster 48 programmer that is compatible with alot of uCs, it has direct pin interface and jtag/ISP.
My worry is the software is old and the 1284p is not on the list but the 664p is which I hear is similar.
Are there any way to use this machine to program the uC?
I am starting to think I should I have just got 89s52 but it is not nearly as powerful.
