Another MCU Question
« on: March 13, 2010, 10:59:16 AM »
If I can't obtain the ATmega8A-PU AVR, could I still use ATmega8-PU AVR? Would something go wrong and explode? :(

In short, it will be fine. They are drop-in replacements.

8A is the newer revision that draws less current (but you don't need to change your circuit for that).

Just make sure you change the chip name in the code before compiling, thats all.
