    Minimum System for AVR microcontroller

    I am completely new in the field of microcontrollers and now I have to start making a project! I have selected a microcontroller from the atmel atmega series but since the pin configs. vary from each microcontroller, I am confused as to how to develop a minimum system. Also if I order a microcontroller from the Atmel site will they give me the microcontroller with the minimum system? I am going for the Atmel AtmegaX 64A1 uc......

    What do you mean by minimum system?

    I'm not aware of any AVR using this nomenclature.

    Are you referring to an ATMEGA or ATXMEGA?

    Are you referring to the ATMEGA64 or ATXMEGA64A1U?

    Re: Minimum System for AVR microcontroller

    the avr is a microcontroller, right? What I am trying to say is that don't we have something to connect first to the microcontroller before we can program it? Just as in the 8051 we have a DIP but u can't program with the DIP right away we need some sort of Trainer like the one right here: http://www.microdigitaled.com/8051/H...rogramming.htm

    Re: Minimum System for AVR microcontroller

    I believe I understand what you are requesting.

    A specific minimal design or development board depends largely on the specific microcontroller you intend on utilizing.

    Which specific AVR do you intend on utilizing as a development platform? I was unsure whether you were referring to an ATMEGA or ATXMEGA?
