Description: This new version uses an SMD 5Ã—2 header. This is a simple to use USB AVR programmer. It is low cost, easy to use, works great with AVRDude, and is tested extensively on a Windows desktop. Based on Dick Steefland's USBtiny and Limor Fried's USBtinyISP.
We've gotten a big response (see comments and forum posts below) from Mac and Linux users having problems. We use this programmer extensively on a Windows box and love it.
However, this is a low-cost programmer designed for those on a tight budget. For out-of-the-box compatibility with other operating systems and machines, checkout the AVR ISP2 USB programmer from Digikey.
This programmer works really well for ATmega168 and ATmega328 and should work with all the AVR micros supported by AVRDUDE.
This board is buffered and power protected so that you can do some really evil things to the programmer without killing it. It is fast! Comparable speed to the AVR ISP2 USB programmer from Digikey. One of the greatest features of this board is the ability to power the target (up to 500mA) from the programmer.
To use this programmer, attach to a Windows machine and install the drivers listed below. Open a command prompt. Assuming WinAVR (and therefore AVRDUDE) have been installed, type:avrdude -c usbtiny -B 1 -patmega328 -U flash:w:main.hex
Be sure to include the "-B 1" flag as this will significantly increase the programming speed! You may need to change -p flag to your appropriate microcontroller. You can setup a tool and hotkey in Programmers Notepad to do this automatically.

Why did I buy two? Well, I didn't pay attention to the reminder in the last line of my own review: The one about the power/no power. I toasted my last one when I had external power to my Arduino AND from this device. I'm still optimistic though, as there's an SMD fuse on board. So I have a package of them in transit from China.
And yes, it comes with a handy cable that allows either connection to 10pin or 6pin header.
Here's my review from the other product page that applies to this same device:
This AVR programmer is awesome! Now I can buy inexpensive, blank ATMEGA 328 chips and easily install my own boot loader!
sparkfun (dot com) has an excellent tutorial on using this device as an ISP (in-system programmer) for the Aruduino Uno. Although there's a lot of description text there (you can use this little guy in MANY different ways)... the simplest for me was a single picture they have of wiring the Arudino to this programmer. Yes, it comes with a ribbon cable, but I have a Arduino Uno Zebra Case (Black Ice) and the ribbon cable doesn't fit in the cutout hole, and I didn't feel like disassembling it.
In short, on the Arudino:
Vcc/5v - Red - Pin 2
Gnd - Black - Pin 6
MOSI - Green - Pin 4
MISO - Yellow - Pin 1
SCK - Blue - Pin 3
Reset - Gray - Pin 5
And on this device:
Vcc - Red - pin 2
Gnd - Black - Pin 6
MOSI - Green - Pin 1
MISO - Yellow - Pin 9
SCK - Blue - Pin 7
Reset - Gray - Pin 5
This is product 9825 on the sparkfun web site, and they have a pdf of the schematic.
Once connected, it is a simple matter of selecting (from Arudiino IDE)
Tools - Programmer - (choose USBTinyISP)
Burn - Boot loader
I did all this from my Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Project Board - 1GB RAM - 900 MHz Quad-Core CPU after installing the Arudino IDE via:
sudo apt-get install arduino
That command installs everything you need, including the avrdude programmer.
Note that BOTH the Arudino AND this programmer need to be plugged into USB ports. Amazon sells a good hub that works for me: AmazonBasics 7 Port USB 2.0 Hub with 5V/4A Power Adapter
Very cool. Highly recommended.
p.s. Pay attention to the "Power Target" / "No Power" switch.
Now it's working great and I'm enjoying it very much.
Sparkfun has all the info and resources on their site to get this up and running.
