I've a unit out in the field which the customer has asked me to add some features to. It currently runs using a DIP mega644P. The changes are easy except that I will need more than 4k RAM, probably nearer 6k, it currently uses just over 1k. In the absence of the mega1284P does anyone know of a DIP adaptor/'stamp' style board with a mega1280/1281/2560/2561 mounted on it BUT with a pin-out to match the 644P? Or a mega128 and XRAM?

Thanks.

I'm fairly sure you are on your own here and that you have to design your own adapter.

I think most people will find a 64 pin AVR module with only 40 pins actually available quite useless and as such nobody makes such module.

The neatest solution would be a QFN 1281, as it's only 9 mm square, and would fit nicely on a DIL40 PCB. The PCB design should be quite straightforward.

@jayjay
I take your point although I'm sure many people would be interested in a DIP40 processor with lots of RAM and peripherals.

@Leon
Thanks, hadn't thought of a QFN packaged device.
