Arduino and ATMEGA644 - DIP 40 PINS - 64k Flash

I have a problem, lack of flash memory. I can not use "Mega" the 2560, my project has to be DIP socket.

The processor ATMEGA644 is compatible? What needs to change to be compatible?


DIP Easy to assemble, we can use sockets. 40-pin PDIP, 44-lead TQFP, and 44-pad QFN/MLF 32 Programmable I/O Lines 64K Bytes of In-System Self-programmable Flash program memory.

Hi, welcome to the party. There are a bunch of ATMega644/1284 variants around already. In fact, I am waiting on delivery right now of PCBs to plug '1284's into with Duemilanove style board footprint for shield compatilbility. Will post a link when I get home.

In the meantime, do a search for "mighty 1284" in github, maniacbug has been developing the cores to make the 40 pin DIPs work great.

Take a look at the Sanguino

The info here is a bit out of date but it is a start. I have used a lot of 644 chips and they work fine.

This is the board I have on order, think I ordered 30 with 19 spoken for already.

The mouser part can be installed, or an FTDI Basic board or FTDI cable can be plugged in if USB is only needed for sketch downloading.
