I was reading the first post and see that I can burn my own chip with my UNO. What does it mean to have a bootloader? Right now the 328 that came with my UNO is in my tabula rasa. So can I just grab a bunch more atm328 chips and upload your code to chip using Arduino software and my UNO? I am still so green the the Arduino world and just figuring out what I can do with it.

Thanks.

For the ATMEGA328 to have a bootloader, you would need to use one of the following methods:

A: Use an ATMEGA328 that came from an Arduino development board
B: Purchase a pre bootloaded ATMEGA328 (Sparkfun, Adafruit, many others...)
C: Take a minty fresh ATMEGA from Mouser, Digikey, Allied, etc... and burn the Arduino bootloader onto the ATMEGA328 using an AVRISP or similar programmer. Technically if you are using an AVRISP, you could skip the bootloader and just burn the compiled .HEX file that the Arduino IDE spits out. This is how the production run Quantimators are done. The bootloader is only needed if you plan on using the Arduino development board to hack on the firmware. Even then, it's not really needed if you know what you are doing, just makes things easier by eliminating steps.

I'm in for a board, chip, dip and a drink with a little umbrella.

Haha, I forgot that I even made this post. Um so ya it sounds as though I don't even need a "bootloader" at all. Right?!?!? :hmm:

I have a bunch of Minty fresh 328s I got from Tayda, in hopes this project some about at some point. I don't have a AVRISP, so from what I am extracting from your last comment "junk rhythm", I can just skip the bootloading all together and upload using my UNO, since I will not be hacking anything. OR when you say "hack" do you mean "put on the firmware. (which would mean that I need it.)
If I can still do it but have to "know what I'm doing (which I don't :hihi: ) this is how I learn, by taking on things that I don't and working through it. :yay:
I'll go see how much those avrisp things are, NEVER ENOUGH TOOLS! I say.

If you want to use the UNO as the programming device, you would need Arduino bootloaded 328s. The Arduino itself won't be able to burn that bootloader onto the 328 from what I've researched and it can't burn the compiled .HEX onto the device either. The only way to put the bootloader or the .HEX onto the 328 is via an AVRISP or similar programmer. I assume the 328s from Tayda are most likely non-Arduino bootloaded ICs so you will need to look for a method of getting the bootloader on there if you want to use them with the UNO.

By hack I meant muck around with the firmware and potentially make a mess of the code. :eek:

...or extend some of the feature set to include other ideas or maybe rewrite the firmware and create an alternate faceplate so the module could do something else entirely. The hardware could be repurposed for other modules.

Ok cool. Just looked, avrisp ain't so pricey. I love the ability to make my own shit and learn some new stuff. I imagine that I can do the boot loading with OSX?

There are ways to do it on OSX but I was never patient enough to get it working. I have WinXP installed in Parallels on my MacBook which is how I've done the Quantimator firmware burning for Josh/Toppobrillo in the past.
