A while back I wrote a blog series for Atmel on how to build a microcontroller board.
I also created a version for my blog, and it became very popular.
The idea was to show what it takes to build a microcontroller board from scratch.
Now, I’ve turned it into a PDF tutorial that you can download for free:
Throughout the tutorial, you’ll learn the steps you need to build your very own microcontroller circuit.
You will then be able to use this circuit to build a blinking lamp, a robot, an automatic cat-feeder or whatever idea you want to build.
My goal was to make the circuit as simple as possible, without the need for any external programmer or debugger.
A circuit you could just plug into a USB port on your computer and program.
I did not plan it out in any way.
I just built it while writing about the process.
Keep On Soldering!
