Yes. With some "moderate" level complications.
Are you sure you weren't given 88's to specifically discourage such actions?
Absolutely, and also they are recycling some of the parts. We were explicitly prohibited from using the Arduino as a part of our final design, which is fair enough. This is a circuit design exercise as much as anything, so it really wouldn't make sense to include such an expensive component into the design. However, using it as a design tool isnt. The hardware of the Arduino definitely allows us to write different parts of the code at the same time- I'll be developing the motor drivers while someone else is handling the sensing and control, etc. Anyway, we'll research it and give it a try
If I see any of the magic smoke, I'll make sure to report back
Bet it wouldn't take much. Looks a 168 with 1/2 the memory.http://www.atmel.com/devices/ATMEGA88.aspx?tab=documents
- make sure there's an entry for it in avrdude.conf - possibly copy the 168 section, update the signature bytes and memory sizes
- make a new entry in boards.txt, again copy the 168 section and tweak as needed
- update pins_arduino.h to call out the new type in a few places
Probably put pins_arduino.h in a new variants folder in the 1.0.1 directory somewhere.
I'll try this out
Thanks a lot
I probably won't need to use any of the ready libraries, though, because we have to write them from scratch anyway.
Thanks again to everyone, I was expecting a firm "NO", but apparently its more of a "maybe", which is definitely good
