How do i program a microcontroller? Answered
I am a novice when it comes to microcontrollers. I understand schematics and how to build a circuit, and how to write the program for that chip. I've never found any tutorial on how to connect the chip to a programmer via usb. Do i need to use a breadboard, and then create a mass of circuitry, or is there a simple board i can use as an adapter?
