11. Arduino ISP
Arduino ISP turns your Arduino into an in-circuit programmer to re-program AtMega chips. Useful when you need to re-load the bootloader on an Arduino, if you're going from Arduino to an AtMega on a breadboard , or if you're making your own Arduino-compatible circuit on a breadboard.
