First of all, I am not an expert on electronics, so forgive me for asking something which is trivial for probably the most of you.
I am trying to get my Arduino (Micro) code running on a custom PCB with the Atmega32U chip on it. The person who made the PCB copied parts of the schematics of the Arduino Micro onto a custom PCB. What he did, is place the Atmega chip on it, and also copied the wiring for the micro USB connector.
That way, I can hook up the PCB to my USB port but now Windows does not recognize the chip as a "Arduino hosted via a COM port", but just as a atmega chip.
I learned that installing Atmel Studio 7 will also provide the correct drivers so that Windows recognizes the chip correctly via USB:
The next step for me was to get my code running on the atmega chip. So with some help from the internet I came to the following steps:
- open my sketch in Arduino IDE
- compile with verbose output
- find the location where the ".HEX" file is stored
But how can I flash this .HEX to the Atmega chip?
