The Mates Programmer is a simple USB programmer for all Breadboard Mates products, providing a simple 5-way programming interface and selection option for programming other devices such as “barebones” Arduino (Atmel) processors.
The BBM Programmer offers a simple connection for a MatesBUS compatible device, such as the TIMI-96, connecting to one side (5-pins) of the MatesBUS interface, allowing easy programming of the device using Mates Studio.
The Nates Programmer has a microUSB Interface to connect the programmer to the PC, using a standard microUSB cable; it then utilises a standard 5-pin interface for programming the 4D Labs processors found Breadboard Mates products, such as the TIMI-96. This 5-pin interface is one side of the MatesBUS Interface.
The MatesBUS Interface is made up of 2 rows of 5 pins, 0.1″ (2.54mm) pitch, spaced 0.3″ (7.62mm) apart, ideal for direct plug into a breadboard or compatible adaptor or development board.
The BBM-Programmer does not come with the microUSB cable.
