Unfortunately a 32pin QFN does not fit on the 44pin PSB pads for the 1284P.
If you're responding to my suggestion of ATmega324P
I am working on a project that will use a ATmega 1284P in its 44 pin QFN package. There are plenty of instructions\videos to be found showing how to DIY solder them to boards and I have used some smaller QFNs in the past. The PCBs will be small and low cost, around 10p each, so I dont mind wasting a few practicing. The 1284ps are £5 each, I would rather not waste them. So can I get dummy packages to try my DIY SMT skills on ?
Google has a bunch of links if you look for "dummy smd devices"Paul
Cheapest I could find are the ATmega324P (or maybe ATmega164P). Not super cheap but it's nice that the chip is actually useful for something.
No, there are many much cheaper QFN devices, smaller devices, everyone's phones are full of them.For instance voltage regulators.
Are there ?How many do you have to buy ?
