ISP programmer connectors

The ZL3AVR board has three connectors for ISP programming:

  • Atmel ISP (JP15)
  • Kanda ISP (JP20)
  • ZL11PRG (JP30)

Before connecting ISP programmer make sure that PB port is not connected with any low impedance load circuits.

JTAG connector

The ZL3AVR board has JTAG connector for microcontroller programming and debugging.

Before connecting JTAG tool make sure that PC port is not connected with any low impedance load circuits. If JTAG is enabled, lines TCK, TDI, TDO and TMS will be unavailable for other purposes.


The ZL3AVR board has a 4x4 matrix keypad. When key is pressed column line (K1..K4) is connected to row line (R1..R4). Keypad has signalization line (JP13) which can generate interrupt when key is pressed. Keypad can be also used in normal mode, but only 4 keys will be available. For this mode JP3 connector pin 2 should be connected with pin 1.

The ZL3AVR board has 8 LEDs for visualization port state. High port state will make LED light. LED anodes are connected to JP22 connector.


LED display

The ZL3AVR board has four 7-segment displays with a common anode. Control signals for display are connected to JP24 and JP28 connectors.

RS232 interface

The ZL3AVR board has DB9F connector and MAX232 voltage converter for RS232 interface. Board can be connected to PC using 1:1 cable. Before using RS232 interface JP4 connector must be shorted.

DC voltage analog input

ZL3AVR board has analog input circuit for AC voltage measurement. This circuit consists of jack connector, suppressing circuit (potentiometer) and amplifier. Input voltage should not exceed 5V.

Analog output

ZL3AVR board has low-pass RC filter (7kHz cutoff frequency), resistance divisor, voltage buffer and optionally constant-voltage component separator. This circuit can be used for generating analog voltage using counter 0, that works in PWM mode. If basic frequency on OC0 line is several times higher than 7kHz, output voltage will be linear function of PWM signal width coefficient. Used with counter this circuit is a simple digital to analog converter.
