Another AVR ISP connector

acl ThiemoNordenholz:write

I use this connector in microcontroller designs where the ISP connector shall be accessible from the outside, "in the field".

Instead of the mechanically unstable 6-pin flat connector usually used for in system programming Atmel's AVR microcontrollers, I am now designing my projects with a 6-contact Mini-DIN plug instead (the same used e.g. for PS/2 keyboard or mouse connections). Pin assignment looks like this:

   1U6
  2 ^ 5
   3 4

1 MISO
2 Vcc
3 SCK
4 MOSI
5 RESET
6 GND

This follows the standard 6-pin ISP pin assignment, which, for reference, looks like this when looking onto the pin header (PCB part side):

    1  2
    3  4
    5  6

1 MISO
2 Vcc
3 SCK
4 MOSI
5 RESET
6 GND
