Standalone Atmega328P Arduino Bootloader Programmer (V3)

This standalone programmer (V3) simplifies the process of installing the Arduino Uno bootloader onto an Atmega328P-PU microcontroller. It eliminates the need for a computer or a separate Arduino board, making it a convenient solution for various programming workflows.

Key Features:

  • Microcontroller Support: Atmega328P-PU
  • Bootloader Installation: Arduino Uno bootloader (5V, 16 MHz)
  • Interface: USB-C 5V power supply
  • User Interface: LEDs and buzzer for success/failure notification
  • Microcontroller State: Supports programming blank or previously used microcontrollers
  • Speed: Programming takes only about 7 seconds


  • Standalone Operation: No computer or additional Arduino board required for programming.
  • Simplified Workflow: Streamlined bootloader installation process.
  • Wide Compatibility: Works with blank or previously used microcontrollers.
  • Visual Feedback: LEDs and buzzer provide clear status indication.


  • Programming Atmega328P microcontrollers for custom projects.
  • Restoring or replacing bootloaders on malfunctioning devices.
  • Educational and prototyping environments for learning AVR microcontroller programming.

Additional Notes:

  • Pre-assembled and tested for immediate use.
  • USB-C cable for power supply required (sold separately).
  • This programmer installs the bootloader intended for standard Arduino Uno R3 development boards (5V, 16 MHz clock).

    I’ve used this device several times, and it worked flawlessly! So much easier than doing it the other arduino/jumpers method. I could wish they sold the adapters to work with other packages, but they can be found.

    This is a great product. I had 75 ATMega328P dip chips to program and fuses had to also be set. The IDE method took several minutes per chip and then I still had to upload the sketch to them. With this stand alone bootloader the process took 5 seconds per chip to get it ready for the sketch.

    Well done.

    I got the assembled version of this product. It arrived in its anti-static pouch. It takes about 5 seconds or less to have the chip programmed. Then the chip is ready for uploading a sketch.I like products like this one. They do one thing and do it well.

    Beautiful kit with very fast shipping!

    I considered removing a star as the board shows up with zero assembly instructions. It is difficult to figure out polarized component orientation as the silk screen and instructions are no help (just requires a lot of schematic review and PCB layout guesses). As stupid as it sounds, complete assembly instructions would be nice.Does it work? Yes, and very well. This saves a lot of work and avoids the insane costs of buying a pre-loaded 328. It plays cute little songs that provide obvious cues as to what is happening.

    This works well. Pop the ATMega328 in the socket and press the button. Does not need to be connected to a pc to work as the boot Loader is strored on the programmer. 15 seconds and the job is done. No Fuss boot loader.

    An excellent way to get a bootloader into an ATMega328 chip. Although it’s possible to use an Arduino UNO as a programmer to achieve the same end, this is by far a great deal more convenient way of doing it.This is a simple to use, ready made, excellent way to get a bootloader into an ATMega328 chip, ready to do some experimenting.I bought 20 ATMega328 chips to play with and I’d say that it has easily paid for itself in time saved and convenience.Thumbs up. 🙂

    Better than advertised. Solved my problems. This solved all my problems. I had been trying to burn the bootloader to a SMD version of the Atmega328p. It was a total nightmare. I have a TQFP32 adapter for the Atmega328p-AU chips. I plugged the adapter into the programmers zif socket, pressed the button and in 3 seconds the bootloader was burned onto the factory fresh Atmega328P-AU. I then put the adapter in my Arduino and clicked upload for my sketch and it worked perfectly. If I could give this product 6 stars, I would.

    Worth the investment. A really great time saver. Instead of setting up a breadboard and having a dedicated arduino to burn the bootloader, this simple device takes seconds. Literally. Plugged it in, put in a fresh atmega328, hit start and done. Uploaded to it right after with no issues. The quick release socket is very nice as well. Great product.

    Makes Bootloading a breeze. Save money by buying your Atmel Mega328’s without a boot loader and do it yourself quickly.
