Programming AVR Microprocessor
easy with BASCOM AVR
This article shows that working with microprocessors has become very straightforward these days. Thanks to the AVR-microprocessor and the well-known BASIC programming language success is assured.There are several different AVR-microprocessors available. The AT90S2313 is an inexpensive 20-pin version with 2 kB of flashable code memory. Flash memory is the area where the program is stored. The main advantage of this type of memory is that it can be reprogrammed a thousand times. An even bigger advantage is that you do not have to bother with special programmers or UV erasers — a simple cable connected to the LPT (parallel printer) port of your PC is all you need to program a flashable micro.
