This quick tutorial shows you how to install the latest AVR Downloader/UploaDEr 6.1 in Ubuntu 14.04 while Software Center provides an old version.
AVRDUDE, stands for AVR Downloader/UploaDEr, is software for programming Atmel AVR Microcontrollers. It provides a command-line interface for all downloading and uploading features. Supports a wide range of programming hardware, from cheap ISP plugs that connect the AVR’s ISP interface directly to a computer’s parallel port or serial port. Supports Intel Hex, Motorola S-Record, and raw binary files for input and output.
The latest version 6.1 was released with below changes:
- Atmel EDBG protocol support added (JTAGICE3, XplainedPro, Atmel-ICE)
- Atmel DFU, using FLIP protocol version 1 (AT90USB and ATmega*U* devices), or version 2 (Xmega devices) support.
- Atmel-ICE (ARM/AVR), JTAG, PDI, debugWIRE, ISP modi support.
- AVRDUDE segfaults when writing eeprom
- Typo fix in fuses report (for 6.1-svn-20130917)
- verify errors for object size > 16 k on x32e5 due to typo in avrdude.conf
- Elf file support (possibly) not working on 6.0.1 windows build
- AT Mega2560 not correctly programmed with stk500(v1) ISP (solution patch)
- OS X: Avrdude messes with the usb stack?
- dfu.c missing include
- DFU FLIPv2 programming support
- (Some) programmers can take a list of USB PIDs now.
AVRDude 6.1 is available in a third-party repository for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. To install it, run commands below one by one in terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pmjdebruijn/avrdude-release sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install avrdude
Once installed, run
man avrdude to get help or read the documents.
Thank Ji m, your post help me
It looks like this repository only has Avrdude 6.0.1 – which does not support the atmel-ice programmer.
did you make a new version for linux as linux mint 18.04 please
