I have succesfully (or so the ide says) burned a bootloader on an ATMega328P-PU chipset, and uploaded my sketch on it.
It appears a voltage regulation is absolutely needed, if I want to solder a pcb with the standalone chip, rather than an arduino. Is that correct? Can I build one out of my starter kits parts (assortment of transistors, diodes, zeners, resistors and capacitors)?
In the meantime, I would like to make sure the chispet is functional. Can I power it from GND/5V of an arduino? Will it take care of that power regulation?
If I can, what is the correspondance between the arduino pins, and the ATMega328P-PU pins? I have this page here : http://www.learningaboutelectronics.com/Articles/Atmega328-pinout.php referencing the chipset pinout. Am I correct in assuming there is a correspondance with the arduino pinout in the reading order of this chart, ie. :
PD0 to PD7 are Rx, Tx, digital pins 2 to 7 on the arduino, PB0 to PB5 are digital pins 8 to 13, and PC0 to PC5 are A0 to A5 on the arduino?
Thanks for reading.
