Topic: Alternative chip other than the ATMega8 or 168 (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

I'm trying to build the Arduino Single-Sided Serial Board from scratch. Now, first thing I noticed is the chip used, either the ATMega8 or ATMega168, regarding in my current location the place where I live the chips is not in any way available. Is there any other chips that works, functions and is compatible with the circuit?

The ATmega328 and ATmega328P will also work (and have twice the memory as the ATmega168).

how about other chips other than the ATMega chips? Because I can't find any chips that is ATMega so I was wondering is there any similar chip that I can use as an alternative

Atmegas are micro-controllers made by Atmel, so no, there is no other chip that can be equal to it, because they are proprietary technology by Atmel and no one besides Atmel fabricates them

Can you find AT90S chips (made by atmel)? I'm not sure they are pin compatible, but they are ATMEL chips and have the AVR GCC support for them. If you're looking for the bare chips, chances are you can program them, so it doesn't quite matter if they are ATmega or not.

@Senso, AVR chips aren't easily available everywhere... if it hadn't been for the Arduino, you'd probably still be "robbed" every time you wanted an AVR in Portugal.

A couple people from the Philippines have managed to build Arduino systems.  Maybe they can point you at their sources.  Search the forums for "Philippines."

I will try to find that chip. So I can assume any chip made by atmel can be used as a replacement for the atmega8 and 168?

I have searched it and I found someone that might help me. I never thought of that idea. Thanks

Well, no.  Almost any "8bit AVR" will be supported by the underlying tools that are used by the Arduino IDE, but only a few are immediately compatible with the Arduino SW.  Given the nature of your questions, you should probably put your efforts into finding a mega8, 168, or 328, rather than trying to figure out how to make some other chip work...

No local sources of Arduino but plenty of choices for places that ship to the Philippines.

Portugues disfarçado?

Yah, I was just thinking for other options if ever I will never find the specific chips being used.

I have found sources outside of my country but it will be a little bit troublesome just to wait 2 weeks max for the shipment to arrive.

LOL, sim. É mais Português esquecido (de meter o país no perfil). LOLOL
