Hi i am using atmega 16. I have wasted 5 atmega 8 and 3 atmega 16 for making mistake in changing crystals.
please tell me a standard procedure to change external crystals in atmega 16.
i mean i connect 16mhz crystal with atmega 16 and then change fuse bits in extreme burner software. how i come back to built in 1 mhz? will i have to remove the crystal first and then change the fuse bits for 1mhz?
or i should keep the crystal in xtal1 and xtal2 with capacitors and then change the fuse bits...
also tell me the difference between oscillator and crystal if there are any
please tell me in details. if any link or forum post might be helpful, post here please.
