I'm very pleased to announce a fun workshop at the Dumbo Arts Center in a few weeks.

Come and get on the air!

and for more info about the project.

I hadnt even made it through half the datasheet!!!!

this command turns the whole controller off?

and could someone point me to a reference containing the exact number of machine cylces a port manip command takes...

I have a bunch of other questions but I'll take this project one step at a time...

Thank you very much for your help....

Thanks to all.  I'm using Vin and just posting sloppily.  I'll try scaling back the resistor and maybe move the ON switch between the dc converter and board.

Edit:  The changes do seem to protect the flash, but the project still hangs after one sample, which I bet is software........  many thanks.

So i have a 328 smt board analog-reading 6 pots, 4 outs to a L298 to relays, and a "wave shield".  I'm just using a wall wart power supply.  Between the 12vdc and Vcc is a empirical ~100[ch937] resistor because the regulator was getting quite hot.  I upload the code and it works swell, with or without the external power (relays and L298).  I then unplug the usb and "reboot" on DC to a very reproducible crash.  After the hang, the device will no longer work until i re-upload the program again.  What is the problem?  I wouldn't think its the code.  Is there a current surge during boot that the resistor fatally limits?  Extra caps at Vcc -> ground don't help.  The output (on a scope) of the power supply looks normal.  
Do I really need a zener et al?  I am missing something as the avr eats it so easily; everything else is triple checked.  Any advice is much appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Seeing as  I cant find an earlier post  that answers my questions.............

I want to use a 14.@#$% crystal for video purposes...
I know very little about crystals................  but have a good grasp on DC theory......
Will I need to adjust the values of the accompanying caps?

Or more generally, how closely are the caps tuned?

Should their  [5 * (timeconstant)]  be tuned to the crystal?

Should should their 5 * .707 * (timeconstant) be the crystal freq.?


etc.    could some one even point me to a resource?  as I cant really dig a good explaination up....

I would definitely be interested in a high-power and/or RGB LED bulk order.  calculate me in for atleast a couple hundred.
