Topic: Atmega644P Second Serial port (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

jamesvote

I am using a ATmega644P and would like have a second serial port.
The device has one but I can not see how to "use" it. (Pins 16 = RX1, pin 17 = TX1)

Have used "softserial" but while the Tx works on the 644, the Rx on ANY pin I program does not?
I have used softserial on my Duemilanove and it works, I just ran out of program space, so migrated to the 644.
I am using Sanguino 644 8MHz  for the "Board"
Can any one advice pls.

Also can some point me to a "table" that lists what the letters mean after the ATmega chips, P/PU/V/A etc

Thanks

does serial1 work (keeping in mind the first port is Serial0)

for instance

Serial1.read()

I recall testing the serial1 port on my 644P when I got the board first working and the second serial port worked with my simple tests.

Keep in mind that the 644 non-P model does not contain the second hardware serial port.

"Also can some point me to a "table" that lists what the letters mean after the ATmega chips, P/PU/V/A etc"
That can be found in the datasheets.
In general, the first part:
Atmega644, 644A, 644P, 644PA,
The P stands for Pico power, while the A refers to an update,
and -PU, -AU, -MU, etc. refers to the packaging. DIP, quad flat pack, leadless, ball grid array, etc.

That second link is ugly looking and doesn't work.

Hi
Thanks for the all your prompt reply's.
"Serial1".worked, but funny enough when I use "Serial0". it does not compile...
But "Serial." does, thanks anyway, system working, so I can move on.
"Letters" after chip number, thanks for the list.
Not sure about if "no 2nd serial" if P is missing thou.....

Best regards

Yes, Serial, Serial1, and for Mega, Serial2, Serial3.

I thought I remember reading somewhere that the reference to no second serial port on the non-P 644 was an error and it does in fact have a second UART.

I keep meaning to get my 644P's and 644's bootloaded and actually prove it true or false, unless someone else can confirm.

The Atmel datasheets are pretty clear on the matter. From the 644 datasheet:

The ATmega644 has one USART, USART0.


I've got a optiboot version hex file that works on the 644 chip:
