I have a small breadboard with an Atmega328p 28 pin microcontroller with a 16 MHz crystal and two 20 pF capacitors on it (similar to this demo: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard).
The difference with that demo is I am using a USBasp ISCP programmer to program the chip instead of an Arduino, and I was able to successfully program the infamous 'blink' program to my MCU and I couldn't be more happy.
However, instead of delaying for 1000 ms (1 second), I needed to change the parameter of my wait function to "20 ms" to achieve an on/off time of 1 actual second.
Is there something I'm missing here? Do I need to add anything to my circuit or perhaps change the capacitor values in order to fix the clock speed? Thank you.
