I have an ATMEGA328-PU that I bought from Digikey. I was planning on programming it by replacing the 28 pin dip microcontroller in my Arduino UNO R3 board. It's not working, as I guess I am trying to fit a square peg in a round hole...... It's wrong chip to work in an UNO.
So how can I burn the bootloader on this chip and upload code to it?
Yes, I have seen a lot of tutorials on the subject. Breadboard the chip, hook up wires to an UNO, and burn the bootloader from the Arduino IDE. I've also wasted a lot of time following bad tutorials, or ones that didn't address my specific problem.
Can someone point me in the right direction here?
