NEW PRODUCT - Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) Breakout for 28-Pin AVR

Have you ever needed to program more than one 28-pin AVR microcontroller with an Arduino sketch - or flash new code? We all have and after the second or third repetition the process can become quite painful.

Until now!

Thanks to necessity being the mother of invention, we've solved the problem for ourselves and shared it with you - the new Freetronics Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) Breakout for 28-Pin AVR:

Using this breakout you simply drop your ATmega into the socket, click the lever down, and it's firmly held in place while you program it. Click the lever back up, lift out the ATmega, and you're done. Soooo easy.

Includes an ICSP header to connect up a programmer like our USBasp, and a serial header in standard FTDI-cable format so you can connect a converter such as our USB Serial Adapter.

Problem solved! For more information and to order, please visit the product page. And for more, we're on facebook, twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
