Okey, so I really want to make a stand alone circuit. Ive done so with the larger DIP size chip.
Now, I want to go SMD. So I made this breakout board:
The idea is to fit this nicely onto the DIP socket on my ARDUINO UNO, "tricking" the IDE to beleive that the original chip is in place (but Ive replaced it with an SMD type, as you see on the right side).
No idea if that will actually work, but thats not my main problem.
How on earth do I burn the bootloader onto this SMD chip ?
Will my custom circuit board and/or one, or two arduinos help me in this process?
