Why do i not need to use the clock Crystal? I thought the ATmega chip needed that. Can you please Elaborate?

Yea so specifically what parts would they be able to share? I know for sure they cannot share the 16MHz Crystal. Like if they can share the resistors would it be good with the current ones or would different one be needed for the share?

Well i decided to make a Laser-Tag system based on the Arduino. I want this to be as low budget as possible. Therefore i want to build an Arduino. (http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Standalone) This costs about $5, that is why i want to build it. While thinking about this an idea came into my mind. I would be able to have twice the processing power on my custom board if i add another Arduino to it. I want to do this so one can focus about shooting and one about reciving and sending data. I have had trouble with the IR library, At first i tried to have one Arduino Sending and Reviving IR signals between itself. That did not work out, It did not receive the signals it sent. Now i am wondering, What parts can the Arduino share if there are TWO ATmega328 chips on one board. I mean like can they share the Voltage Regulator, Resistors, etc..

Can anyone help me out? P.S. If you know how to make the Arduino be able to send and receive IR signals between itself, I would be glad to hear it.

Thank You!

Thanks for the info!

Well i want to connect the Arduino Mini to my PC with the Serial to USB adapter without buying a FDTI Friend (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9717). This is a LaserTag Project Which is low Budget. Buying a Serial to USB is cheaper than the FDTI. If you still need to know more ask away.

Hi, I'm an Arduino NOOB. I want to buy the Arduino Mini but it does not have a USB port. Would it be possible to use a Serial-to-USB adapter like this http://bit.ly/RpUAYL and connect it to the RX TX connections on the Arduino Mini? If not what Low-Cost adapters can i use and why cannot the RX TX thing cannot be done?
