Hi Everyone, I hope this is the right section to post this.
I would like to create my own circuit to program ATTiny45 and Atmega8 chips. I have an FTDI cable and would like some guidance to what circuit is required.
I was hoping I could connect RX to MISO and TX to MOSI directly, but it appears I need other components.
Many thanks, Justin
[UPDATE] Sorry everyone, I've cause confusion here, the large chip I have is not an Atmega8, it is actually a AT89C2051. I'm leaving the above unchanged so it doesn't make the posted replies seem off topic. :blush:
