ZIF Box

This project expands on the "Arduino on a Breadboard" (to give credit where credit is due). I had a need to program Atmega chips for several projects. After using the Arduino UNO once to program a chip, I realized that this method could lead to damaged chip legs so....

The ZIF Box is a Zero Insertion Force socket wired up as the socket of the Arduino on a breadboard and put inside a Hobby Box for durability. This allows me to program many ATmega chips (one at a time) with very little effort and absolutely NO FEAR of damaging the legs of the chips!!!

So I came up with a few requirements:
1) Provide an easy means to program the ATmega chip (must already have the bootloader) without damage to the chip.
2) Must be able to program the same sketch on multiple ATmega chips (one at a time).
3) Must be durable for repeated use.

Now I know that if you look at the overall cost of this project, it is at or more than an Arduino Uno, but the ZIF Box will save wear and tear on your Arduino board, prevent damage to the ATmega chips, and you only have to build this project once and it will become a tool on your electronics bench. Check out what others are saying about the ZIF Box project build!
