This is probably a totally noob question but i need to know.
After developing on the Arduiono Diecimila which has been a lot of fun (software guy, trys hardware), can I take the ATmega168 out of the Arduino board and use it on a breadboard or pcb ?
I’m thinking yes, once the code has been uploaded it’s going to be usable.
But how do the Arduino i/o pins relate to the chip and can I just connect up the way I did when using the board or are there critical stuff on the arduino board which needs to be replicated.
Basically, I want to know how to convert a prototype to an actual stand-alone device without sacrificing my lovely Arduino.
