put these into a Uno

I have just purchased the following 2x ATMEGA328-PU Arduino UNO Bootloader,

Will i be able to drop these chips direct into my Uno and program them?.

Thanks.

If they have a boot loader already they should work fine.

You may get a Signature Byte error. If you do, its pretty easy to make a file change to have them recognized.

Thanks.

You need to tweak the avrdude.conf file to include sections for the chip variation you have. You describe its signature and fuses. Search for avrdude.conf here.

Take a look at this:

Find avrdude.conf in this folder:
C:\Arduino-1.0.1\hardware\tools\avr\etc

copy the '328 section and paste it at the end.

Find boards.txt in this folder:

Copy this section, paste it at end, make these changes as indicated by <<<

In both cases, I used free download of Notepad++ for editing, lot easier than fighting with Notepad to do it

I don’t have a 328 chip to try it, but I believe this is what is needed.
