This is a USB programmer which I am listing primarily as an add-on to my SixtyFourPixels and ARPIE kits so that you can upload new firmware. This programmer can also be used with other "bare bones Arduino" projects or as a general USB-to-TTL serial interface.
Please note that this type of programmer is NOT suitable for programming Microchip PIC chips and therefore cannot be used with my MIDIHUB or LE STRUM projects which use PICs
It is based on the Silicon Labs CP2102 chip, plugs directly into a USB socket and comes with a 4-way cable of 20mm length.
The board breaks out GND, VCC(+5V and +3.3V), TXD, RXD and RST.
Please note that the RST pin will not drive the reset line of an AVR in the same way that an FTDI-type cable will. A manual reset is still needed to start an upload.
You will need to download free drivers from Silicon Labs web site http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/USBtoUARTBridgeVCPDrivers.aspx
Windows and Mac are supported by the SiLabs drivers. Please check the link to validate support for your operating system version

I am an electronics hobbyist from Brighton UK. I love playing with microcontrollers and doing interesting things with MIDI and analog noiseboxes. Lots of new ideas in the pipeline so watch this space...
