I am making up a low power, minimalist board with an Atmega328P. I will program it using an AVRISPmkII and therefore want to do away with the bootloader.
However when I look at the fuse settings (BOOTSZ) I see that there are only four options for bootloader size, ranging from 256 words to 2048 words. i.e. there is no option for zero bootloader size.
As I am not using a bootloader, I want to free up this space for use by my sketch.
Can I use this address space or am I stuck with this 'black hole'?
