Arduino on all sorts of Atmels

Step 2: Setting up the software

Picture of Setting up the software
This step is mainly about how to setting things up on the computer side.

First, if not already done, install the Arduino IDE from www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
Second, download the core files from www.avr-developers.com/corefiles/ . There is an instruction on how to install it right on the site, but to make it easy: just unzip the files to arduinoInstallPath\hardware there arduinoInstallPath is the path there you have installed the IDE.
Third, start the Arduino IDE and open File -> Examples -> Arduino ISP.
Fourth, connect your Arduino board to the computer.
Fifth, choose your Arduino board from the Tools -> Board and choose the serial port from Tools -> Serial Port.
Sixth, press upload.


Now you have set up everything on the computer side and made your ISP (Arduino) ready. You are now ready to start setting up your MCU to program.

i need to upload code to the attiny 2313 frm the arduino!!
and one more thing
can we just use the normal coding we use for arduino (arduino ide code?)

Yes, the whole idea with this is you can use normal "arduino code" for other MCUs than the ones originally supported by arduino.
