Protostack.com offers an affortable ATMEGA8 Development KIT for anyone looking to start building their own microcontroller projects. This board hosts an ATMEGA8 mcu along with resistors, capacitors and crystal that need to be there to make mcu run. The main advantage of this board is the space available for prototyping your circuit and connectors to directly plug your programmer. On board there are two ISP connectors that will allow a wide range of programmers to be used.  A compatible USB AVR programmer is also available for sale on their site. ATMEGA8 port pin connections are available on pcb and pcb tracks for Vcc and GND bring power to your parts on the prototype area. An LC filter on analog Vcc and a reset switch completes this high quality board.
