I have 7 ATmega168s and all of them are ATmega168-20PUs but they run at 16MHz due to the external oscillator

I would like to run them at 20MHz

Besides the 20MHz versions there are also 4, 10, 12 and 16MHz versions of the ATmega

The Xmega can do 32MHz

The Xmega is still vaporware, isn't it?

Not quite sure, it's showing as being "on order"

Why?

gnu_linux

To get 4 more MIPS out of it :)

I am not looking to overclock the parts, just run them at 20MHz as spec'ed instead of 16MHz

:)

I think the guys over at DIY Drones would like to get the extra processing power from that 4MHz.

As ericski mentioned, on some projects like that every single MHz and MIPS counts :)

On other projects if you're trying to conserve power and dissipate less heat, use lower power supply voltages, and so on, sometimes underclocking the chip is desirable

If you want to run the ATmega 48V / 88V / 168V at 4MHz you can run it at as low as 1.8V

At 10MHz you need to run it at 2.7 - 5.5V

At 20MHz you have to run it at 4.5 - 5.5V

This is on page 306 of the datasheet
