Hi!

Does anybody know why they put 10k resistors between Port B-terminal and socket for the AVR (but just on PB5, PB6 and PB7)? I had to jump them for my application.

Probably because the In-System Programmming adapter connect to these pins. It makes sure the In-System Programmer can drive these inputs without causing a contention with other signals driven by external devices connected to the board through the socket.

Yes, these ports are used for programming the device (MOSI, MISO and SCK) of the device. They separate the MCU and the STK(2|3)00 dongle in a very simple fashion.

If you need the pins without resistors for your application, you can use a multiplexer to switch the MCU pins PB5..7 to either the ISP interface OR your application.

It is explained in depth in the STK(2|3)00 manuals or I can send you my own idea of how to work with the multiplaxer IC.

See www.avr-forum.com for schematics of the STK(2|3)00. They show exactly the 2 possibilities!
