  2. Note for Arduino 1.0: you need to make one small change to the ArduinoISP code. Find the line in the heartbeat() function that says "delay(40);" and change it to "delay(20);".
  3. Select the items in the Tools > Board and Serial Port menus that correspond to the board you are using as the programmer (not the board being programmed).
  4. Upload the ArduinoISP sketch.

This tutorial explains how to use an Arduino board as an AVR ISP (in-system programmer). This allows you to use the board to burn the bootloader onto an AVR (e.g. the ATmega168 or ATmega328 used in Arduino). The code in this example is based on the mega-isp firmware by Randall Bohn. This example requires the forthcoming Arduino 0018.

Using an Arduino as an AVR ISP (In-System Programmer)

This tutorial explains how to use an Arduino board as an AVR ISP (in-system programmer). This allows you to use the board to burn the bootloader onto an AVR (e.g. the ATmega168 or ATmega328 used in Arduino). You can also use this technique to bypass the bootloader and program the microcontrollers directly.

Instructions

To use your Arduino board to burn a bootloader onto an AVR, you need to follow a few simple steps:

  1. Load the avrisp firmware (below) onto your Arduino board as you would any other sketch.
  2. Wire your Arduino board to the target as shown in the diagram below.
  3. Select the appropriate item from the Tools > Board menu.
  4. Use the Burn Bootloader > Arduino as AVRISP command.
