I'm ashamed to say that I have just fitted an ATMega328 to my Arduino Uno, but got the orientation wrong !!!!   (What a twit !! - I am now marking the pin 1 end with a blob of Tipp-ex on both chips  and board to hopefully prevent this happening again.   Have a damaged either the ATMega or the Arduino ??
Appreciate  any help  on this embarressing issue !!! :0 :smiley-roll-sweat: :smiley-roll:

Yes, I   think it does, but haven't done too much testing yet ! (I move the chip to another board to use it) Thought that I should seek the advice of others first about whether I've done any damage (more worried about the Arduino obviously  - I can afford to lose an ATMega chip !)

Yes done it myself, it happens to us all.

No damage noticed but I won't go building it into a life support system.

... so are you saying that I can carry on and use both without endangering anything ?? 
(Don't worry - I wouldn't trust my coding to anything vaguely important !!)

Thanks for your help, by the way - much appreciated !
