I seem to have issues running the arduino standalone.
i soldered up a circuit on a protoboard, as per the schematic found at http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Standalone
When i insert the atmega chip in the standalone board nothing happens. i measure the voltages on the power pins and read 5v the ground pins are ground
The crystal pins read .54v and .71v
is there any way to test the resonator that i am using?
Putting the chip back in my arduino usb everything works as normal.
If i power my standalone board from the arduino usb 5v line everything runs as normal, could noisy power be throwing off the arduino? any ideas?
