    Hello everyone, long story short i'm stuck in the house for the next few days and fancy building an Arduino-clone. I have a pre-programmed Arduino Atmega328 (From an official retailer aswell) but I haven't got an FTDI cable. I just want a quick lashup so is where any way I can just use a serial port and a MAX232 for level shifting?

    I found this schematic which is for the Atmega168, which i'm told is the same as the 328, but with half the flash memory. Can anyone say wether this will work?

    Thanks for any help
