If I supply a voltage to my chip (atmega328p) of 4.1v the output I had expected the pin out (ie:PC0) to be in that range.
Instead I measured it as 1.6v. I have made a horrible mistake of connecting my pin to a regulator (mcp1703) to power a low power chip.
I now realize I should have tied it to a transistor, but thought I could save some parts (and time soldering).
I of course printed a circuit board and put everything on before realizing. Any ideas? Do I have to solder some wires to a transistor or is there a way around this?
Thank you so much! If I left out any info I can fill anything else in.
What would you do? (Reprinting and Re-soldering would cost quite a bit ($80 with new chips) and take too long if I can avoid it).
