Two AVR USB Programmers?

Can I run more than one of these?

I would like to have 2 instances of Atmel Studio up, with one connected to my master and one to my client.

I’m doing Windows 7, anyone tried this?

Hello, Martin.

I have not tried it but I think your plan should work fine if you are using the Device Programming window in Atmel Studio instead of trying to program with F5. When you have everything configured correctly and press F5, I think Atmel Studio just connects to the first programmer on the list (or something like that). It might be difficult to get two different instances to have two different STK500s in the “Available Atmel Tools” list.


Got my second programmer yesterday, hooked it up this morning. Works GREAT!
One monitor has my master code, the other the client. VERY handy for debugging!
