I'm looking for a way to use an external nonvolatile memory device to store the program for an ATmega103L. Can the ATmega103L access external program memory, or is external memory strictly data memory?

thanks,

Rick

Hi Rick,

The external memory is strictly data memory. All code to be executed needs to be programmed into the internal flash memory. The device is in-system programmable, so you can update the code in a device, but you'll need an external microcontroller (or similar) to perform it.
