Atmega328 Cap Sense+Input+Software PWM?
I always break the problem down to bite size pieces, start with one touch pad and one LED, once that is working then add more. JC

UART data send - mixing bytes
At 9600 baud, your sending one character ~ every mS, and your strings look like they are 11 or 12 char's long, so your generating new data faster then your sending, so you may...

1284p halts and reset not working
I'm a bit confused, is this operating at (minus)45C or {plus)45C. if the former, that's pretty cold, are all of the components used rated for that temp? JC

ATtiny85 ADC question
PB3 is the reset pin, and has a permanent weak internal pull up resistor, move your temp sensor to any other ADC input and see if your results change! JC Sorry, I was looking at...

impedance loading at input of microcontroller
I would not use the internal pull up as that will "bias" your voltage divider. Turn off the internal pull up, and see if it works. JC

ATmega48 - AD5121 I2C problem
As a suggestion, I would move the i2c_init() function out of the forever loop, only doing it once before looping. Try a slower I2C clock speed, once you have it working, you can...

Sparkfun TMP102 and TWI Problem
There are min times for the protocol, stopping mid transfer to do slow LCD updates and 5 sec delays are sure to cause problems, try sending entire command sequences capturing...

Unable to enter programming mode (AVRISP MKII)
Also the AVRISP mkII does not supply VCC to the target MCU, the MCU must be powered from a separate power source in order to be programmed. JC

Atmega328P + DS3231
It always amazes me when I see I2C functions used without any testing of return values. Most I2C functions return a status code, which can be used to identify problems. When I2C...
