I am a beginner here. I have made a small project with Arduino and it uses Nokia 5110 LCD. Now I saw some posts online and I came to know that one can 'program' the processor itself and connect LCD directly! I have an Atmega8 lying around and I was hoping if I can program it somehow. It comes with Arduino Bootloader installed (I don't know what that means)
I have used Arduino Uno for the project. I have connected the LCD and added few tactile buttons. And LCD displays some pre stored character strings. Does not require internet or any computing.
Is this project doable? Where do I get started? I also read that I can use Arduino mini/micro/nano to program the Atmega8. I would prefer this way, as I arduino uno I can use it in different tasks.
Any help regarding this is appreciated. Thank you!
