[SOLVED] Ft232R and ATmega644


Just a small question. Would it be possible to use the FT232R for programming a ATmega644 which already contains a arduino bootloader (from Sanguino)? I can find lots of examples using a ATmega238 or 168, but none about the ATmega644.

I bet that is possible, and most probably done.
The "boards.txt" file needs the additional info for the 644

e.g. Google Code Archive - Long-term storage for Google Code Project Hosting.

Sure can. The FT232 just performs USB/Serial conversion, the '644 doesn't care where the serial is coming from.
That's basically what this is - a 40 pin 324/644/1284 with an FTDI FT232 module for USB/Serial.

Thanks. I didn't want to spent any money at it while I was not sure it could be done.
