Default Development board Atmel ATmega

I'm looking for a good but cheap development board/programmer for Atmel microcontrollers. I'm mostly interested in ATmega16 but it would be great if it supported other microcontrollers as well.

I've been looking on www.avrfreaks.net and saw lots of different development boards, the STK500 seems nice but a little expensive, but perhaps it's worth it.

Other alternatives is:
http://www.avrfreaks.net/Tools/showtools.php?ToolID=158
http://www.avrfreaks.net/Tools/showtools.php?ToolID=398

I know that it is very easy and cheap to make a programmer but I would prefer a development board.

Suggestions?

/Freddie

Hi Freddie,

There is really no need for a development board at all. All the low cost dev boards use the ISP program method. So put your ATMega in your intended application and hook up an ISP connector. Then start programming right away.

In stead of fiddling an ISP dongle together yourself it is really worth to spend $50 for the Atmel ISP serial dongle. It integrates seamlessly in the (free) Atmel development suite. It really saves you a lot of trouble. The DIY programmers do not support the various fuse settings very well.

Cheers
