Thanks in advance. :D You would have to use a transistor as an electronic switch. However this won't work very well because the ...

Re: How do I verify if ATMEGA328 has bootloader burned alrea

Hi, That's an easy solution for that first problem then :D . What you are seeing is exactly what you should see. The LED blinking is the test program that the people at the Gadgetory load onto the microcontroller for testing and when you reset the microcontroller, the boot-loader reloads the program...

Re: How do I verify if ATMEGA328 has bootloader burned alrea

Here are some suspect place I am wondering that I might cause problem: 1. Is Oscillator still alive? 2. Is Oscillator have polarity and which leg I should connect to XTAL1(pin9) and XTAL2(pin10)? 3. I did install virtual communication port driver and it seems the port is "COM4". I also ch...

Re: need to make sure i set my micro controller up proporly

Ok, great. ...

Re: need to make sure i set my micro controller up proporly

Hi, From the looks of it everything does look like it's connected properly. Other things that could possible be causing the problem: [1] Perhaps the TX/RX connections are swapped. [2] Maybe the label on the Microcontroller is backwards? Does the notch on the Microcontroller line up with the black no...
