Are any of the programming lines shared with other hardware ?

 

Also- A big omission: I don't think we've seen a schematic yet.

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

Gotta love equipment with digital readouts!

 

So just how accurate is the displayed value?

(Often times, not very!)

 

The "good thing" about the older versions of temperature adjustable soldering irons that just had a rotary knob to adjust was that if the solder wasn't melting, or one had a jparticularly large joint to solder with a big heat sink effect, one just cranked up the knob, totally oblivious to what the actual temerature of the tip was.

 

For far too many years that I can recall my main soldering iron, (a Weller), simply had an on/off switch!

was that supposed to be in another thread?

Darn - I was convinced I'd posted that here: https://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/program-destroys-atmega328p-after-working-few-hours-works-perfectly-uno-days but couldn't find it.  I wondered where it got to.

 

It's probably too much of a database hack for a mod to move it; so I'll repost correctly.

 

<edit> I won't bother to repost - I see a schematic has already been requested by a certain awneil.

These posts were attached, incorrectly by the site's software, to anothher thread and then split and renamed here. Don't blame me... I'm just the janitor in this case.

It would need a miracle now that the target thread has been deleted entirely.

After seeing it, briefly, I don't think it was such a great loss?!
