My first project is a combination of two NetdKits projects.

MCU Project: Blink LED Here is a video describing my first project. I blink an LED and write to an LCD display. Pretty simple, but a good project for learning the architecture of the ATmega168, how to configure the pin functions, and a little bit of C programming. Check it out here: Also, the code listing and schematic are on my MCU page here: Rick

Thanks Bob,

I'm really excited to get back into electronics. I'm an old engineer who got burned out a long time ago and quit everything technical. Now I getting my interest back, but this time it is just a fun hobby. :)
