thanks for the help and posts you made.
unfortunately.. I just can use any of it to help 'me'.
I dont have any 'antipathy' towards schematics.. but I dont fully understand them...and having to use them makes things 100 times HARDER for me at this point. I understand hey are better.. more informatvie..and what the professionals like to use/read.
however I am NOT one them... and I need something that is HELPFUL in the answers I seek.. not just more steps/pieces the puzzle.
my focus is trying to get to the code part. (period).. to do that I am seeking help with the hardware side of things.
You have not even answered or touched on the numerous attempts of asking about using a static chip..or other questions I had posted.
you are focus on the link/schematic (which again at this point is too much/useless for me)
I know 'YOU' are season/vet member.. but taking things for granted that you learned long ago or not keeping in mind that others do NOT have the experience you do us 'noobies' no good. If I had that experience and knowledge I wouldnt need to come here seeking help.
I can only equate this to the machining world..
some people buy their lathes & mills.. and their machines BECOME the hobby/project.. with mods and tweaks..etc..
some buy these machines as 'tools' only, to further their end projects/hobby..
this is about as 'tough' of a schematic I can handle:http://www.embedds.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/schematicuo7.jpg
although I dont think the second one does anything.. as I have tried similar in my 'diagram' above..
to summarize.. (if this was the intent or not)
I was looking for some for VERY basic noob help....
and I got a 'DO IT' type response.. with a link that is over my ability (as stated in the op.. a basic, easy diagram to follow)
not saying my lack or ability if your fault..but there is no need to keep beating a deadhorse with a "DO IT" type link that does nothing for me.
So I tried to seek alternative solutions and questions to meet my goal..
ie: easier diagram.. or maybe explore the static memory chip route.
