We have already explored some theory. We can't wait to start building embedded projects. I discussed the embedded system development process in chapter 2. Programming a Microcontroller requires some hardware & some software. The upcoming chapters will cover the following two parts,Firstly, we will set up our hardware. The AVRs support In System Programming. I will give you some idea about it. This chapter will exclusively deal with In System Programming.
- Setting up your Hardware
- Setting up your Software
In System Programming
AVR Microcontrollers can be programmed in system. They support In System Programming (ISP). There is no need to remove the chip from the embedded system. It can be programmed or reprogrammed on the run.
