Hey there.

So... you use an ad blocker. That's cool. Sometimes we do too.


But without ad revenue, we wouldn't even be here. And we might not be here much longer.

Please disable your ad blocker and click to continue.

    Yeah, it might not be 100% true for them all. I guess there are a couple that embrace the opensource scene. But the majority want to make all their stuff proprietary, and then rely on copying everyone else when new payloads and such are created.

    They should just really tell you what chip it has, what size flash, and use the already existing tools out there to program them. This way the end user wouldn't be dependent on them for software. The only thing these companies are making money on is selling the hardware.. so just sell it, and leave it open.

    Doesn't really matter to me much though. I already have my 3 different usb dev boards (tensy 2.0, AT90USBKEY, and sparkfun avr stick)... all of which are open for the end user to do whatever they want with them.

    Not bad, but I hope they don't bring out more dongles. It divides the market, and the less people have a certain dongle, the less attentions goes towards it and the less support can be provided....
