avrp - Atmel AVR programming software to use with Atmel’s serial-port
avrp [-s <serial port>] [-a <chip type>] [-prv] [-f <filename>] [-e
<filename>] [-d <deffile>] [-l <lockmode>] [--enable <fuse>] [--disable
<fuse>] [--version] [--help] [-qIh]
avrp works on serial-port programmers which use Atmel’s communication
protocol for serial-port programmers. These programmers can program
AVR (and other) chips both in serial and parallel mode.
These programmers are known:
AVR ICP - Atmel In-circuit programmer
AVR PPR - Atmel parallel programmer
AVR DEV - Atmel development board
AVR A.G - Parallel mode programmer by Adrian Godwin
Adrian Godwin’s programmer can be found on
Instruction on how to build Atmel’s in-circuit programmer can be found
on Atmel’s homepage (http://www.atmel.com). Look for application note
avrp is currently supporting these systems:
win32 (windows 95++ and NT)
The source-code part of Atmel’s application note AVR910 was used to
determine how to communicate with these programmers.
Several option can be given after one ’-’, but if an option requires an
argument; the argument must be given after that option.
-s <serial port>
Specifies which serial port to talk through. This option can be
avoided if you set the environment variable AVRP_SERIALPORT
-a <chip type>
Specifies what kind of chip to talk to. Use ’-a list’ for chip
type to get a list of supported devices. You can use the
shortest possible abbreviation to identify a chip. This option
can be avoided if you set the environment variable AVRP_AVRTYPE
-p Program a chip -f <filename> and/or -e <filename> must be
specified to determine which files to read from. (-f specifes
flash, and -e eeprom)
-r Read a chip -f <filename> and/or -e <filename> must be specified
to determine which files to write to. (-f specifes flash, and
-v Verify. Performs a standalone verify. (The program function
will always do a inline verify) -f <filename> and/or -e
<filename> must be specified to determine which files to read
from. (-f specifes flash, and -e eeprom)
Specifies which flash-file to read/write. Supportet formats are
Intel HEX and Atmel’s generic fileformat.
Specifies which eeprom-file to read/write. Supportet formats
are Intel HEX and Atmel’s generic fileformat.
Specifies lockmode to progam into the chip. Use ’-l list’ to get
a list of possible lockmodes.
-q Quiet. Don’t write any progress information. Will speed up
Specifies the path and filename of avrp.def if default location
is not possible. Can also be set with the environment variable
-I Ignores the signature in the chip. This is very useful if the
signature in the chip have been destroyed in some way.
Enables specified fuses.
Disables specified fuses.
You can use this to speed up programming on newer programmer
Print out version information.
Print out a short help text.
Specifies which serial port to use.
Specifies chip to talk to.
Specifies the location of avrp.def
Print out information on the programmer:
avrp -s /dev/ttyS1
Same as above, but also give information on the inserted chip:
avrp -s /dev/ttyS1 -a AT90S1200-D/E/F
Program a chip (flash only, and using a short chip-descriptor):
avrp -s /dev/ttyS1 -a 1200-d -p -f avr910.rom
Read a chip (flash and eeprom, AVRP_SERIALPORT is set):
avrp -a 8515 -rf test.hex -e test.eep.hex
