learn how to use fuses:

The 22pF caps on the crystal are important as they help crystal to oscillate on its fundamental frequency..

So, the minimum circuit for an arduino based development board is a 16MHz crystal and the 100nF cap for power supply and pull up resistor for RESET pin ?


No, you can use the internal oscilator (there is a fuse). And the reset is not required. The minimum is just the cap for the supply


Why reset is not required ? I thought RESET should be pulled up for normal usage ?

Thanks :D

Reset pullup needed for most stable operation, see Section 3

You are free to chase noise issue, odd resets, etc. if you so choose.

Yea, so I neeed a pull up resistor :D

Thanks ^^
