I'm trying to connect a 16Mhz quartz crystal to my atmega 32.
I've read that setting wrong fuses is dangerous so
I want to consult with more experienced members first before doing it .
I've also read some posts on google etc but I can't find relevant information.
So I know that I have to connect the Xtal to the XTAL pins on my Atmega32 and I need to connect both pins to ground through 12-22pF ceramic caps.
Question 1 :
Can I/do I have to programm the fuses in my main routine with the CKSEL or/and OSCCAL registers ?
I see that I can set the CKSEL fuses in the device programming section in Atmel studio 6 but I can't see any fuses which would show an external oscillator and 16 mhz .
Could someone guide me in this ? I've read the datasheets and i'm abit confused .
I use Atmel studio 6.1
I don't need the frequency to be accurate. I just need it to run at about 16Mhz
Thanks in advance
