I have put together a breadboard version of the arduino by following the tutorial on arduino's main website https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Standalone.
I have done everything exactly how that tutorial explains it and have double checked my work to ensure I didn't mess up a connection somehow. I have a usb mini breadout board that I am connecting from the breadboard to my computer and the pin outs are as follows:
- GND -> Breadboard GND
- 5v -> Breadboard + rail
- TXO -> IC pin 2
- RXI -> IC pin 3
- GND (GRN) -> IC pin 1 through .1μF cap
When I go to the arduino IDE and select the arduino duemilanove setting and upload a sketch I come out with this error:
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
I am using a pre-bootloaded atmega328 chip and have switched it out with two others to make sure it wasn't the switch, but that didn't help either.
Any ideas on what might be the problem?
