Topic: ATmega168 in DIP28 format (Read 794 times) previous topic - next topic


So I've got a few AVRmega168 in DIP packaging to easily make my own circuits w/out having to solder surface mount things. Is there any way I can use the ICSP programmer interface to upload programs created using the Arduino enviroment?


sorry, I am confused as to what you want to do here... can you be more specific?

You have dip Atmega8's and would like to use the ICSP interface to.... ??


How would I go about programming an ATmega168 with the Arduino bootloader using the ICSP interface?

ah ok -- you want to burn the Arduino bootloader onto the Amtega8 through the 6 pin ICSP?

Atmel makes two commonly available programmers: the  STK500, a sort of development board, and the smaller AVR-ISP programmer.

A cheaper option is to build the parallel port programmer described on this page.

It's all covered here, on the bootloader page.

If you have an Arduino board you can use it as an ISP programmer for other boards or just the ATMega168 processors.
