ATMEGA 328 were else can i connect it and use it ?

Were else can i connect it and use it ? its a general question like other platforme than arduino its there possible ? TNX

The 'Arduino' consists of two major components, the software (IDE) and the hardware (UNO etc.). The Arduino software is essentially limited to being used with the Arduino hardware or other compatible hardware.

The Arduino hardware, on the other hand, can easily be used in other environments such as the Atmel Studio 4 (and the Studio 5, presently in beta) IDE. Using one of these you can program the ATmega328 in assembly language as well as in C and possibly other languages as well. This hardware, especially the software compatible versions that do not include the USB interface, therefore provides a very cost effective way to gain experience with the ATmega328.

Thank you :) is there more programes in wich i could program the microcontroler with out the arduino ?

Yes, there's:

  • Assembly
  • C
  • Basic

Assembly is programmed in the AVR Studio and, if I were you, I wouldn't deal with it. Don't get me wrong, but we're talking about the opposite extreme to the Arduino... nothing is easy there.

C is easily done as it resembles the Arduino language, but you need to learn a few more things, specially the configuration registers of the Arduino.

Basic, I have no idea... but seems like there's a compiler somewhere for it.

If you want some tutorials about using Avr Studio and an Arduino look here: http://hekilledmywire.wordpress.com Its my own blog.

... and it's quite good!

I've had good success with Bascom for Basic.

Unfortunately it's down right now, http://www.avrfreaks.net/ has a an interesting section under Tools about all kinds of compilers and IDEs.
