Tutorial: mega32 ISP adapter
The mega32 ISP adapter is a PCB that was specifically designed for this class. It allows for much cleaner connections from the AVR ISP to your microcontroller. It must be soldered before use, but if soldered, replaces the prelab where you must manually break out wires.
The mega32 ISP adapter makes your board look much neater than a manual breakout and allows for easier cleanup. Connect it to your microcontroller such that the SPI pins align like so:
