I fix computers/am an IT guy. I always have old PCs. My home PC is an Athlon64 single core (no money to replace).

Do tell. I have all the parts for doing it via parallel, so it's zero cost to make it.

Flores - trying to do this without cost. I have ZERO money right now to spend.

Thanks dudes.

I was being an idiot - I am used to using Arduino and a 9 pin SERIAL - and that only works with a boot-loader. I use a USB to serial also.. But you were talking about ISP !!

Apowers is on the RIGHT track for you

Look at Ponyprog - works for most.

Hi,

I'm new to the board and new to the EV scene. So far I'm just doing research to see about converting a Suzuki Samurai or another light vehicle into a EV. I noticed the revolt controler uses Atmel and I perked up a bit. I used to do some programming and circuit design for a down hole oil well company using Microchip's PIC microcontrollers and had a blast doing it. But that's been a while, lol. Has anyone done a converter using one of Microchips programmable chips? I even wrote VB code to interface with the chips which was cool. Those were the days.

Thanks,
Kirby
