This article is the first one in a series of articles (hosted @ hackaday.com) that aims to make you comfortable programming the Atmel AVR microcontrollers. It is a tutorial written for people that has never touched a microcontroller before. This first article discuss what a microcontroller is, how it works and shows the pinout of an example mcu (ATmega168). It also discuss about the tools needed, like the compiler and the programming software AVRdude etc. On the next article they will discuss about the hardware needed to programm a AVR microcontroller.

This article shows some resources that will help you getting started with Atmel AVRs. It includes some sets of instructions and reference guides, some notes on hardware used, a few interesting examples of AVR source code and articles about using AVR microcontrollers. Check the list of resources on the link below.

In this two series tutorial learn about the tools and basic steps needed to start programming Atmel AVR microcontrollers in C programming language. It is written to people who are new to programming this type of microcontrollers. The AVRJazz Mega168 board will be used, however this information can be used for other AVR family.
This is a simple and easy to build AVR programmer connected to serial port. It can be used with PonyProg or Avrdude software programmer. It is based on SI-Prog from the author of PonyProg software.

@ www.ullasmann.eu we found some very interesting projects based on Tiny13/2313 and Tiny15/25. The project list is as follows:
Atmel’s ATA874x single-chip UHF ASK/FSK RF transmitter family targets a broad range of proprietary wireless industrial and consumer applications such as metering, alarm systems and home control applications. This new AVR® product family offers RF performance operating in the license-free ISM frequency bands (868 to 928 MHz, 433 MHz, and 315 MHz).

This clock is based on ATTINY2313 and displays time in Roman numbers. When you first turn it on, you have to adjust it using a small button. Adjustment proccess is as follows:
1) Press and hold the button for about 3 seconds -> hours appear on the screen -> release the button.
2) Press the button again and hold -> the hours advance from “I” to “XXIV” -> release the button on the right time.
3) Wait about 3 seconds -> minutes appear on the screen.
4) Press the button and hold -> the minutes increase from “nothing” to “LIX” -> release on right minute.
Schematic and hex file are included
