AVR-HV USB programmer is based on Microchip's PIC18F4550 microcontroller and the main reason to select this microcontroller is its built-in USB functionality. Compiled version of firmware for this microcontroller is available at file download section of sourceforge.net project page.
Recommended supply voltage for AVR-HV programmer is around 18V - 25VDC. Use 1A - 1.5A regulated power supply to drive this system.
For USB connectivity use standard 1.5m shielded USB data cable.
Programmer software of AVR-HV is available to download at sourceforge.net project page. There are no any configuration, framework installation or driver installation is needed for AVR-HV programmer.
PCB of AVR-HV is available to order at OSH Park.
This project is an open source hardware (OSHW) project. All the project files, source codes, original schematics, PCB designs and compiled binaries are available to download at http://sourceforge.net/projects/avrhv/
