I use AVR Studio for my compilation and c/c++ code (not arduino).So far I have used a Atmega 2560 development board provided by Nex robotix.
Now I need to do some programming on low end microcontrollers like ATmega 168 (28 pins). I just have the raw chip. Can I program it on breadboard,or must I buy a development board?
After programming the chip can I use it on breadboard with Vcc, GND and the pins I need for my application?
