Hello all, I'm new to avr-studio and writing to chips all together so please bare with me. My back ground is tech related and I have been a programmer for many years. I also have modest knowledge in electronics. I have searched the forums but cant pinpoint where to start.
My set up.
I built a simple circuit that has an ATMEGA8-16PU with a 12 mhz oscillator and the correct pinning for what is referred to as an 6 pin ISP.
I'm using a usb version of the rs232 cable and was told to use the "stk500 avrisp" connection. This connects to my device fine.
I also know that I need the fuses settings for this project are: high_byte=0xc9 low_byte=0x9f.
I'm using avr-studio win32.
One thing thats a bit concerning are the vast options in the connect window. Is there a guide on here that shows what to use for a common atmega8?
also when I try to go to any of the other pages in the settings for the connection window I get the generic warning message " a problem accrued when executing the command" all suggests are in line, not that I can change the freq any how since it always default to 1/4th..
I hope I included enough info here. Thx in advance, sorry if I posted in the wrong area.
