I will go ahead and buy a Duemilanove and start hacking. Is it against the rules to ask who has the best price and service?
It looks like nkcelectronics still has the duemilanove on sale for $22:http://www.nkcelectronics.com/arduino-duemilanove-with-atmega168-22-prom16822.ht...
So my question is, after I write my program to the Arduino board+uC, can I then just remove the uC and place it in my properly-wired embedded application, effectively just using the Duemilanove board and Arduino IDE as a uC programmer, and convenient prototyper?
This is a good idea that alot of people use. I have recently developed my [glow]A-Level electronics[/glow] project with Aruduino. I used the board to prototype the major parts of the circuit e.g. LCD Screen, Joystick and button interface.I then created a PCB with all the neccessary components and programmed the ATMega chip in the Duemilanove. This was a very simple plan.
1. what, precisely, is a "sketch"?
But can I create other sketches and have them be their own sub-routines the way I did in java? Or should my entire uC program fit in one arduino sketch?
In arduino, there is this setup() and loop() phenomenon.
