I have recently been reading up on the 1284P chip which Looks like an impressive improvement to the Uno/328P. Alot of comments out there about people having problems With bootloaders Etc.
I am curious to find out some solid info on exactly what boot loader To use for the 1284P that's fully working at 16mhz Xtal, and if its Possible to burn a bootloader to it using the UNO as ISP, although I Do have a genius g540 programmer as well.
Is there any loses using the 1284P with functionality e.g. Using the eeprom? I have been reading up a lot on it and everything's still abit in the open. Just looking for Solid info so I can crack on with projects.
I have 2 on the way in the post and I don't want to mess them up/brick them When they cost £5 each. Which is still better than the arduino mega at £13 for the SMD chip.
