  • actually its not 20nf caps, the best setup is to run 2 22pf caps from the crystal legs to ground, I read 20 nf somewhere and tried it, but it locked up the avr, fortunately when I found an accurate source of information and got the 22pf caps the avr and crystal were both still fine.
    in short, you need 2 22pf caps, 1 22uf electrolytic cap (radial lead, axial lead wont work…that means it has to have an positive and negative, cant be non-polarized) 16mhz crystal, 5 volt voltage regulator, and a 10nf cap.
    any questions see:
    ^I’ve done this it works perfect^

No public wish lists :(
