ATmega328P with bootloader

Post by Jackson » Sun Feb 07, 2016 7:31 am

New to the Arduino but I have had success with the basics of the Leostick. Now, I am trying to put together a breadboard Arduino, using an ATmega328P with bootloader and a 16 Mhz crystal (using a Windows 7 laptop). It looks like I need a USB to serial adapter between the laptop and the breadboard. Can I use the Leostick, which I am not using, as the adapter? If so, help with coding would be appreciated.

Jackson.

You can use one Arduino or compatible to upload a sketch to your breadboard equivalent.
See:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino ... /?ALLSTEPS
for an example of how it is done.
You may want to solder in the ICSP pins to the LeoStick.
