With regard to testing I've the following programmers:

== Wiki contributions ==
* (old) M4A785T-M with W25x80 DIP8(with and without coreboot) => works fine

* [https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/legalcode CC-BY-SA 3.0]
* Arduino uno and duemillanove (serprog based) => 5v only, which is problematic

* [https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/legalcode CC-BY-SA 4.0] or later

== My interests ==
* linux_spi compatible hardwre... => works fine too so far...
