ATmega328

hi.. can anyone tell me about ATmega328 if it is okay to remove from arduino board and attach it to another bread board without crystal? i want to make a project without using arduino board... or i want it only ATmega328 alone...

without the crystal you need to reset configuration fuses, get yourself a ceramic resonator, its the 16mhz clock and 2 caps in 1 tiny package and less hassle

So, it is necessary to have or put a crystal or whatever resonator capacitor and ceramic?

Google “bare bones arduino” or “standalone arduino”

Or if you want to get REALLY tiny, “single chip arduino”

what i mean is the mcu is already programmed in the arduino board.. then replace it in the bread board without xtal or resonator?

Unless you reprogram the fuses to use the internal oscillator, you need to provide one. Keep in mind that the internal oscillator does not run at 16MHz.

so it is applicable to do what i want?

No, as stated above you either have provide a crystal or resonator OR reprogram the fuses to use the internal clock.

If you reprogram the fuses the chip won't run at 16MHz but at 8, this may or may not matter, it depends on whether you depend on functions that do timing like millis() and the serial port.
