I've just whipped up a little fuse selector for AVR devices in .NET.
It's modeled to look and act quite a bit like the nice fuse GUI in AVR
Studio with the intention of being useful under Mac OS X, Linux and
Windows. You can run it in Windows if you have the .NET Framework 2.0
installed just by double clicking the application, or in Linux or OS X
with the command "mono AVRFuses.exe"
When the application starts for the first time it will ask you where
to find the part description files. It uses the same files that come
with AVR Studio and they are normally located under C:\Program
Files\Atmel\AVR Tools\Partdescriptionfiles. If you are using Windows
just use that path. If you are using another OS you will need to get a
copy of those files and put them somewhere the program can access them.
AVR Studio is free, and can be downloaded from http://www.atmel.com.
I wrote this because I love the fuse selector in AVR Studio, but I
do most of my development in OS X and got tired of rebooting, or
starting Parallels to use it.
Caveats and TODO:
* Right now the program has three buttons, two of which are greyed out.
The Program button is the only one that works and it just shows your
selected fuses in the log window. If there is enough interest I will add
support for the program to use avrdude or uisp to make Read, Verify and
Program actually work.
* In OS X the Partdescriptionfiles directory preference doesn't seem to
save. You have to select it each time. Oh well. Go Mono!
If you have any questions, comments or feedback, let me know at
This thing took me right around 3 hours to write, so go easy on me :)
