Hi,

is anyone working with ATmega165/ATmega165P? Is there any known errata (the datasheet lists none)?
Does anyone know, whether/when it is available in quantities (1K+)?

Thanks alot!

/Martin.

That is the "Mega169 without the LCD drivers", right?

We haven't designed it in, but it is in stock at DigiKey in the US in many flavours, but I haven't seen any "P" chips yet. Qty. 100 price is US$3.28. The '325 is US$0.75 more.

It looks like it is in full production (except the "P" version, which I don't see listed in the datasheet as an option). I wouldn't expect many surprises since the Mega169 has been around for several years.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

The "P" versions are separate chips with separate datasheets, not just
options for existing chips. So the datasheet for the ATmega165P is at

http://www.atmel.com/dyn/resources/prod_documents/doc8019.pdf

I think the worst differences are for the ATmega644(P) where the P
version even has one UART more than the non-P version. :( At least,
they are upwards-compatible, i. e. you could treat an ATmega644P as
a plain ATmega644 if you want, just ignoring the second UART.

I've at least got a sample of an ATmega165P (for avr-libc development)
quite some time ago, so there's real silicon for them already.

Thanks for the information. According to our distributor, the ATmega165 is in full production from 05/2006, ATmega165P is in limited sampling (I should receive 2 next week).
The P stands for pico-power.
I just wanted to hear, if anyone has any experience with the ATmega165, because we really had a lot of technical problems with the first AT90LS2313 and a lot of availability-problems with the first ATmega48.
Have a great day.

I certainly agree that the "P" chip features are attractive and I am looking to explore them. But the published power consumption numbers for the P versions aren't that much different than the V versions. So one can forge ahead with a 165V or even 169V and cross your fingers that the P version shows up in production quantites when you need it.
