When I started using USBasp
(a great programmer for AVRs), I soon realized that the avrdude (the software
for driving USBasp) is not much usable. Sometimes it irritates me a lots because
of its command line interface. Also the avrdude-gui is not
much helpful as it was just calling the avrdude in background. It cannot write/read
the fuse bytes easily and reading the chip content was impossible. I made many
changes to the software to make it more useful but Finally I decided to write
a fresh new software from scratch and eXtreme Burner – AVR
was born!

The eXtreme
Burner- AVR
has full graphical user interface (GUI) and can be
used much more easily.

Easy AVR Clock Source Configuration

AVR series of MCU supports several types of clock sources for various applications. For example a cheap RC Oscillator or a perfect high speed crystal oscillator. You can select from the following clock sources easily using a drop down menu.

  • External Clock.
  • Calibrated Internal RC Oscillator. (DEFAULT)
  • External RC Oscillator.
  • External Low Frequency Crystal.
  • External Crystal/Ceramic Resonator.

Linux Version !

Finally the much awaited Linux Port is here ! Now you can use eXtreme
Burner – AVR
on Linux too!

Note On Installing

  • You need a GUI Desktop Environment Like GNOME
    or KDE (All Modern Distro Come with at least
    one of them, so don’t worry)
  • You need wxGTK installed (Use your OS’s Package Manager to Install)
  • You need libusb installed (Use your OS’s Package Manager to Install)
  • You need to run the app by root privilege to access the USB Port (Some day
    I will find a fix for it, if you know it please let me know !)
  • Download
    the archive and extract in some place.
  • Start terminal and log in as root using su
    root
    command and enter the root password.(In Ubunto type sudo
    su
    and then your user password)
  • Go to the folder where you place eXtreme Burner – AVR
  • type ./avrprog to start the
    app.
  • Now you can use the graphical interface to work with AVR chips. The interface
    is exactly same as MS Windows version of eXtreme Burner.
