An Easy Breadboard Arduino, Part 3

This is part three of my breadboard Arduino-compatible series.

Part 1, here, wired up the breadboard
Part 2, here, programmed in the bootloader

FTDI Friend amd cable 800Next, I use an Adafruit FTDI Friend to connect the breadboard to a PC USB port so it’s ready to upload sketches. You can also use an FTDI Friend with built-in USB cable, as in the top image.

Once this step is done, the breadboard Arduino-compatible is fully useable with the standard Arduino IDE. Simply choose the board type “Deumilanove w/ Atmega328”
