Hi, I have a few unanswered posts in the past 24 hours regarding programming an ATMega8 from a UNO using optiLoader. I am continuing to investigate the issue I am having and this may be one possibility -
Does the target chip require a clock (internal or external) in order to be programmed successfully ? My intuition is no it doesn't as the SPI interface is clocking the data in, but this suggests I am wrong -
Refer to the final section and the comments attached to the breadboard layout.
If anyone can confirm which is correct I would very much appreciate
