hi im learning to design a pcb for my first project and put a arduino chip in instead of using the board, but im havint trouble communicating to the chip, i have my USB to TTL Converter installed with the correct driver but i cant seem to communicate or download anything to the chip. i am connedted on a serial port but just the usb to ttl converter.
im using the ATMEGA328 ARDUINO chip i have it all set up as it should be ive read a couple of guides, but on the com port all i can see id the usb to ttl converter, not the arduino chip, i have the +5, gnd, txd, rxd, from the port connected to the chip but no urduino?
i have a complete uno board also, but when i place the ic into the board it also doesnt recognise the chip as well?
any help greatly appreciated
ok found out i need to burn the bootloader on the ic, ive found the guide here and tryed several times using an uno board connected to breadboard followed the instructions, but cant seem to burn the bootloader, keep on getting an error does this guide actualy work, are there another guides out there that may work?
