Yesterday night i did the chiip programmer:
- if you don’t know how to cut the plastic, just use a red-hot knife
- use thin wires. but not too much thin! (mine wires were too much thin. very difficult to solder in that small space)
- study (before soldering) the components positions. remember that you’ll have to close that box!
- if your socket’s pins are too short, solder wires to pins and then pass the wires inside the box
Well, now i just need one or two atmega8L8.. but i can’t find it in Rome.. if you want to help me, buy 1 or 2 atmega8L8 and send them to me. i’ll pay you for chips/shipping/time 🙂
