hello all. i am new to arduino.as it is not avalible in my country so i decided to built by myself.i have started building single sided arduino (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardSerialSingleSided3).
can i use ATmega32 instead of ATmega8?
also is there any simple diy programmer to burn a bootloder in ATmega32?thanks in advance.

Hi @sohaib, no the documents of Serial Single Sided V3 clearly states that you can only use ATMEGA8 or 168 because these both are pin compatible. I don't read the docs for ATMEGA32 but i think its not pin compatible with the board.
You can use the Parallel Programmer (dapa) http://www.arduino.cc/en/Hacking/ParallelProgrammer i hope it will work for you.
I wish you good luck because it have been almost a month that i m still trying to do the same thing.

Actually yes they are both pin compatible.


Fuses are different I believe though, but you just program it with the correct bits and your golden.

OHH!! Atmega32? No. It's definitely not pin compatible. The Atmega32 is 40 pins. I am working on that chip now, and it's not supported in the arduino ide either at this time. You would do better with the atmega 8 128 or 328 for now till your more comfortable with the way it works.


You can checkout this tutorial video..I hope this helps you..


Good luck!!
