Yes. With some "moderate" level complications.Are you sure you weren't given 88's to specifically discourage such actions?
Bet it wouldn't take much. Looks a 168 with 1/2 the memory.http://www.atmel.com/devices/ATMEGA88.aspx?tab=documents ATmega88/168 datasheet- make sure there's an entry for it in avrdude.conf - possibly copy the 168 section, update the signature bytes and memory sizes- make a new entry in boards.txt, again copy the 168 section and tweak as needed- update pins_arduino.h to call out the new type in a few placesProbably put pins_arduino.h in a new variants folder in the 1.0.1 directory somewhere.
Hello! I am working on a university project and the chips we are given by the university are DIP packages of ATMega 88. I see that these chips are pin- compatible with the 328. My question is: is there any way I can stick an ATMega88 into an Arduino UNO R2 and have it work properly?
I'd stick the chip in a breadboard and connect your Arduino Uno to it as an ISP programmer. It will work just the same and everybody will be happier.
