Hi all, wasn't sure how to search this one so apologies if this is the millionth time it has been asked!
Only recently started using the Arduino. Have a programming background - albeit years ago - so finding the physical circuits more of a challenge than the sketch side at the moment, but learning huge amounts from this forum (must admit that it's slow going!)
I'm working on projects where basically small=good and very small = even better. Once I'm happy with an arduino project, what is the next step if it is something I want to keep and use? Buy a new Arduino or take the Arduino out of the equation and build the thing again using just a chip and the components I require? If so can I use one of the smaller chips such as on the mini or nano? Just wondered what other people do after the prototyping is over and you actually want to use the thing?
Many thanks in advance.
