Topic: ATmega 328-PU vs ATmega 328P-PU (Read 5365 times) previous topic - next topic

read the title carefully! - just one P difference
my question is - does it matter?

as far as I can tell the only difference is support for pico power and brown out detection
the P-PU does, the -PU doesn't

but if I don't want to use either, will both chips work ok?

any bootloader issues?

thanks

Hi Mike, For all purposes they are the same - the signatures MAY be different (looking that up now)

There have been recent (last week or so) threads on the problems you'll run into during bootloading.  (Easiest fix, IMO, is to add another signature entry into avrdude.conf and boards.txt.)  Once it has your bootloader on it, it acts exactly like an Uno (or whatever).

Both have the BOD, but it can only be disabled on the 328P. But if ultra-low-power sleep modes aren't a requirement, then macht nichts.

I'm not sure the datasheet gets it completely right, Tables 29-8 and 29-9 show the same power-down current, 0.1µA typical, yet the BOD will draw ~22µA at 5V and 25C. Similarly, the charts in sections 30.7.4 and 30.8.4 look suspiciously alike.

thanks all
in the end I found P-PU cheaper then -PU so problem went away :)

Where you getting them? I'm starting to run out!!
