I compiled a hex file where the controller is supposed to blink 1 time per secound. The frequency was set to 1mHz (it is the internal generator). I programmed an Atmega 8a using avrdude 33 on default fuses and now the LED is flushing very fast. I think if I rise the frequency to 8mHz it will work ok. But I need the Atmega running as slow as possible to reduce power consumption. Because if i rise the frequency to 8mHz it will increase the power consumption 8 times! So how sould I configure the fuses?
P.S. I tried to use someone else's fuses and killed a few microcontrollers so I want to be sure that it will work 100%.
