Hi,
What is the preferred device programmer used by those who build robots for a hobby?
Thanks for any suggestions you can offer.

Probably the one that programs your favorite microcontroller that has the onboard flash. Unless you have a special requirement for a general purpose programmer for stand-along flash chips, EPROMs, etc. that one programmer will probably be sufficient.
If you DO want or need recommendation for a more general purpose device, I've been using Needham's programmers for several years and have been pretty happy with them. www.needhams.com

Hi
You can get ICSP programmers for around $USD 10 with free software at www.sparkfun.com I just bought one for PICmicro and AVR, you can use a breadboard and a simple circuit to program a large range of fast, powerful chips.
Cheers

ٌAVR. The AVR is powerfull not only for simple projects & so easy to use. If you are a beginer you can use BASCOM as compiler with a so easy grammer (similar to Basic)
