Step 1: Burn Arduino ISP to Arduino board

Connect Arduino Uno board to your computer. Start Arduino program and from examples choose "ArduinoISP" sketch and upload it to "Arduino Uno" board. Please make sure you select the correct board name and serial port. Now this board is ready to program new Atmega-328 chips on the breadboard as shown in the next step.

<p>Hi Guys, thanks for the tutorial. I did this step and the code uploaded nicely to the ATMEGA 328 P AU. I am now encountering some problems at the moment I should upload my code using a FTDI. Any hap on this mattter? Thanks much!</p>
<p>These instructions are to make a Blank Atmega 328 chip to burn Arduino bootloader on it. After that, you can connect FTDI interface to upload Normal Arduino code to it.</p>
<p>Thanks much Audigi. could you please add the schematics for the ATMega328P AU ? There are more pins, and not sure how are supposed to be wired. Thanks much for your help</p>
<p>I've programmed many ATmega chips using various methods (UNO as ISP, USBTiny, Atmel Studio, etc). I'm now starting a project using the ATmega32U4 44 pin TQFP iC (Leonardo).</p><p>Do you know of any specific configuration or settings to consider for these chips? Also ... once the bootloader has been burned I should be able to use the on-board USB host to upload sketches correct?</p><p>Thanks in advance for any advice! I'll probably pick up one of those TQFP to DIP adapters. The 44 pin versions can be found here for anyone else interested...</p><p>http://www.ebay.com/itm/261576185880?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&amp;ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT</p>
<p>Relic, </p><p>Sorry to get back to you so late. But I did not test this setup with Atmega32u4 Leonardo.</p>
<p>is it possible to get the schematic for the TQFP</p>
What does this do or allow you to do?
<p>This Instructable shows you how to burn arduino bootloader to new/existing Atmega 328P DIP/TQFP chips.</p>
<p>this is great, very well done.</p>
post also electronic schematic :)
<p>Please give me couple of days. I have to draw it and post.</p>
very well done, will vote up
<p>Paul,</p><p>Here is the Schematic for wiring new Atmega 328P with Arduino Uno. Also, Please vote in the Contests for this Instructable. Thank You.</p>
<p>Join the request for the schematic...</p>

Sure!<br><br>and tks!
<p>Give me some time I will post the schematic of Arduino connections on the Breadboard.</p>
<p>Pretty awesome</p>
<p>This is awesome. Great documentation. Do you think that you could add a little bit of info to this i'ble about why you made it? I'm curious as why you needed to do this.</p><p>Thanks!</p>
its good .....and thank you for publish this knowledge
<p>Thank You Atiwari.</p>
<p>First let me say, Thank You Audrey. Appreciate it. I always document my electronic experiments in a notebook, thought of my own blog but never had time, so its coming out this way. I am glad you like it.</p>
