Did you know your Arduino can burn bootloaderds onto Atmega chips, turning them into Arduino compatible microcontrollers. It required a breadboard and a whole mess of jumper wires but we've just made it a ton easier on you with the AVR ISP Shield! It is very easy to use. Just following the Arduino tutorial, You can turn your Atmega chips to Arduino compatible microcontrollers or change the bootloader of the Arduino boards. Such as you can turn the Crowduino to a Arduino UNO board.
I've enjoyed this shield for two years and have found another use for it. With avrdude working in command mode, you can change the fuse settings in an atmel328 without all the jumper wires. (Posted on 4/16/2017)

An excellent product which does what it says it will. Very high quality board with professional masking and finish. I've used it to burn ATMEL's 328P-PU in both 16 MHz (UNO) and 8 MHz (on a breadboard) modes and recommend it to anyone. (Posted on 9/15/2015)
