I got lost with this simple thing and i would like to get going and understand my options.
I am using a mac.
I have a pcb with atmega328 . Usually to bootload it i went with UNO as ISP programmer, connect the lines to the pcb , bootload it, than reconnect the lines to TX RX and upload a sketch using the IDE .
I dont want to bootload it anymore, but to upload software directly and EASLY via ISP.
I would like to do that with arduino UNO ,as ISP programmer, so after i connect the UNO to the ISP lines, and have on the UNO the sketch- “arduinoISP” , how would i upload some blink sketch directly to the board? can i use the arduino IDE ? if not, what works on a mac and is easy to use ?
i bought the tiny programmer by spark fun :
I would like to program the chip with it, so except from connecting the lines to the ISP , how would i upload a sketch using a mac ? can i do that with arduino IDE ?
Do i need an avrdude like this guide(which is not clear to me at all)
Please, any help would be great .
