AVReAl – Closed Source Freeware ISP programmer for AVR supporting ARM-USB-OCD-H and ARM-USB-TINY-H


Image

AVReAl is freeware which allow you to program quite few AVRs with FT2232 based programmers like our ARM-USB-OCD-H and ARM-USB-TINY-H.

This way you can use the programmers for both porgramming and debugging ARMs and programming AVRs so no need to buy additional AVR programmer.

Shame the sources are closed so the community can’t improve it and re-use. I always do wonder if you make one software freeware why you would keep the sources closed (ahamed by the maccoronee style programming mayby? or putting malware inside :D ).

    I don’t see the advantage of this “freeware” over the beloved AVRDude!

    I don’t think that.
    there should be many reason to close source for a freeware.
    re-use is a ambiguous concept, not everyone could keep opensource from he inherited source code. so, I think we no need to criticize the author.
    maybe one day the author will open the source code? lol
