Atmel ISP 6-Pin Header

A quick little guide to the Atmel STK500 6pin in circuit programming header which features in most of my Atmel based projects.

This layout is compatible with the STK500 Programming board aswell as many AVRISP programmers.

Things to note when using this header.

Some programmers do not like having the microcontroller powered when programming in circuit. Hence this must be disconnected before plugging in your programmer.

I try to leave the ISP pins on the microcontroller only for programming but this is not required. I have had issues when having LCD modules on the same pins as the programming, this ment that to program the micro the LCD had to be unplugged.
