Topic: Use a programmed ATMega from a uno 3 as standalone? (Read 227 times) previous topic - next topic

Hello. This has probably been asked many times before, but I guess I suck at searching..

I use an Uno rev3 and am doing a little project right now.
Is it possible to directly pop off the ATMega-controller and plug it in like you would normally do as an ATMega, with oscillator etc as a stand alone kit? Or is there something with the Arduino system that prevents this?

I would simply want the possibility to use the uno 3 as a programmer and use the microcontroller on a custom smaller board.

You can do that. There's nothing to prevent it. There's no magic to an Uno board. It's just a microcontroller on a PCB with some support components and a USB to TTL serial adapter chip.

That was what I was hoping. Thanks! :)

You're welcome. I'm glad if I was able to be of assistance. Enjoy!
