Atmega328 Burn Bootloader

Hi,

I will be purchasing an Atmega 328 to run a 3.3V as the Sparkfun version of Arduino Pro Mini. However, I am designing my own schematic which integrate other components and sensors...

I want to know if using these modules I will be able to burn the bootloader for the Atmega328:

The problem is, how I will be do that if the Atmega 328 came as a surface mount part...?

The surface mount chip comes with a bootloader. Why do you need to burn a new one?

I think you are talking about the Pro Mini, I think the original poster meant they are building their own Pro Mini alike, and thus buying raw TQFP 328’s ?? If one buys a 328p TQFP from a supplier it won’t have any bootloader burnt on it by default.

Some people have been known to 'chop the head off' a 'Stripduino' ( tinkeract.com ) and tack that on their project board. It has the bootloader burned in anyway but also has the 2x3 connector. Just an idea.
