 New:    AVR Burn-O-Mat online fuse calculator

The fuse configurator can be used online now. Not all features are working because Java applets do not have full access to the local computer. You have to install the AVR Burn-O-Mat application to your computer if you want to use all features (e.g. read and write fuses within the fuse dialog).

Preface

To burn Atmel microcontrollers with Linux you may use avrdude like I do. But sometimes you may wish a more comfortable way to do this without knowing hundreds of command line options and without the need of a calculator to calculate the hex codes for the fuses. Thats why I decided to write a graphical user interface that make it easy to read and write fuses, EEPROM and program memory.

Description

The AVR8 Burn-O-Mat is written in Java. That has the little disadvantage for you that you have to install Java before you can use the AVR8-Burn-O-Mat. But don't panic, you can download Java for no costs here: http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads

The installation procedure is quite easy. You have to extract the ZIP archive in a directory of your own choice.

The program should be self explaining. First you should take a look at the settings. Make sure that the path to avrdude program and the avrdude configuration file is correct. Next you should select the correct programmer and the port where the programmer is connected. (The supported programmers are read from the file avrdude.conf)

Here is a list with the supported microcontrollers:

ATmega8, ATmega16, ATmega32, ATmega64, ATmega128, ATmega48, ATmega88, ATmega168, ATmega162, ATmega8515, ATmega8335, ATmega164, ATmega324, ATmega644, ATmega169, ATmega329, ATmega3290, ATmega649, ATmega6490, ATtiny2313, ATtiny13, ATtiny25, ATtiny45, ATtiny85, ATtiny26

New microcontrollers can be added easily. All needed informations (for AVR8-Burn-O-Mat) are stored in the file AVR8_Burn_O_Mat_Config.xml. The format of this file should be self explaining.
