beginner looking for info on arduinos Answered
I'm fairly new to the world of DIY electronics, but I would like to start working on projects that incorporate microprocessors. I've been looking at many of the projects that use arduinos, but I was looking for a little more info on them. I'm sorry if these are stupid questions but with my little knowledge about this stuff I don't really know any better.
Could a single microprocessor be used in place of an arduino?
Could an arduino be used to program an IC chip and then the chip be removed and only use that for the project or does the whole arduino have to be used?
and any other tips you have for me to help me learn more about stuff like this is greatly appreciated.
