Hi folks, hope all is well.
I am trying to upload a sketch to a pro-mini. Well it really is not the pro-mini but it is a device which happens to have an Atmega chip with 4 header pins for SS,MISO, MOSI and SCL.
I was told by my friend that the only way to program this chip is to use an "AVR ISP USBtinyISP Programmer for Arduino Bootloader USB Download Interface".
The link to that programmer is here.....
My question to you guys is....Can I skip the above mentioned "AVR ISP USBtinyISP Programmer for Arduino Bootloader USB Download Interface" and use an Arduin UNO instead?
I mean, isn’t the entire point of having that 3x2 pin header on the edge of the UNO board supposed to do exactly what that $25 programmer is supposed to do?
Thank you for the replies!
