As idolstar said, raw is the pin to use, as long as your battery puts out more then 5 volts by some value, I believe 1.5v? Anyway, people have mentioned that 6v should be acceptable, 9v wouldn’t hurt, I don’t think?
Anyone more knowledgeable about this? Oh, above a sparkfun employee said 9v is fine (direct quote from TonyK above) “Yes. The Pro Mini 5v can have an input voltage range from 5v-12v.”
Yes, you should be able to. You’ll need to solder some header pins into the six pins at the end opposite the reset button, marked blk, gnd, vcc, rxi, txo, and grn. Then you plug your cable in with green in “grn” and black in “blk” and you’re good to go.
Will this board work with the “Arduino as ISP” sketch?
Which is to say, this is the arduino I have on hand, but I’d like to program a few of the raw Atmegas I have around ala http://hlt.media.mit.edu/?p=1229
