ATmega328 Datasheet



Usually I read parts of the datasheet to fill in extra detail that is not obvious from the Arduino functions (e.g. changing the PWM frequency produced by analogWrite() ) or to figure out how to use features that are not part of the standard Arduino functions (e.g. the analog comparator).




ATmega328 Datasheet



Each section of the datasheet terminates with a description of the relevant Registers. All of those registers can be directly programmed from Arduino code - it "knows" the names of the registers (eg TCCR1B - bits 0,1 and 2 of that byte select the timer clock speed and hence control the PWM frequency )


What I want to do with the uC is not really what's driving this question. I'm just curious about (1) who reads the datasheet, (2) what data they find relevant (what their intentions are when referencing a data sheet) (3) typical data flow that are a part of common uC operations (writes to prog mem, program execution).


With those courses under my belt, I can "identify" some elements in an ATMega datasheet but understanding how they work together is more involved, especially since the components aren't "broken out" and everything is hidden on a tiny 28-pin package. For the components that I can't identify, the datasheet does a good job explaining what they are but it doesn't provide examples of their use (like the "example" problems in a calc book).

Maybe another way to think about the role of the datasheet is to recognize how many things we use regularly without needing to read the instructions except in a very cursory manner - TVs, dishwashers, cars etc. This is because they all adopt a well established human interface which only varies slowly.


And, perhaps as a result of that, it is common for people to have an aversion to studying instructions - including, perhaps, Atmel datasheets. I'm sure there are many questions asked here which would have been unnecessary if the person had studied the relevant part of the datasheet.


The Arduino compiler encapsulates a lot of those rules in things like analogWrite(). (That could be considered the equivalent of the standard controls in a car). But the standard Arduino functions cannot encapsulate all of the options available in an Atmel MCU. Hence the need to refer to the datasheet for information about features of the MCU that are not part of the standard Arduino system.


And while you may be able to write many very effective programs using standard Arduino functions without ever needing to study the Atmel datasheet it is unlikely that you will be able to use peripheral devices with your Arduino without studying the datasheet for the device.


While I've overtly read most if not all of the documentation on a handful microprocessors and microcontrollers, the point of the Arduino ecosystem is that one can do physical computing without having to look at the atmega328 datasheet at all.


It really helps to have an idea what you want to DO with the chip. If it's got timers with 27 different modes, the real question is whether it has the modes that match your application, not fully understanding all 27 modes. The Arduino Core is a "pretty-good" target application, and I often look at a datasheet thinking "how would I use the features on this chip to implement an arduino?"


One of the things to look out for is "additional reading required." The AVR data sheets are pretty complete; each one describes the AVR architecture and instruction set, at least partially. ARM based microcontrollers seem to be particularly poor, referring you to the "cortex M0+ reference", which in term refers you to the "ARMv6 architecture technical reference manual", and so on. (grr.) You don't need all that to understand the SAMD10 datasheet, but it IS a bit daunting to realize that there are 800+ pages NOT INCLUDING THE CPU ITSELF. Sigh.


The Arduino Duemilanove ("2009") is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega168 (datasheet) or ATmega328 (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.


The ATmega168 and ATmega328 also support I2C (TWI) and SPI communication. The Arduino software includes a Wire library to simplify use of the I2C bus; see the documentation for details. To use the SPI communication, please see the ATmega168 or ATmega328 datasheet.


Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328P (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz ceramic resonator (CSTCE16M0V53-R0), a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.. You can tinker with your Uno without worrying too much about doing something wrong, worst case scenario you can replace the chip for a few dollars and start over again.


The ATmega328p is a single-chip, high-performance, efficient microcontroller created by Atmel in the megaAVR family. It is an 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontroller chip. In this post, we will learn about the ATmega328p pinout, its datasheet, specifications, and programming methods in detail.

A:This switch is to choose Rx, Tx PIN of XBee connect to RX, TX of atmega328 or RX, TX of XBee connect to TX, RX pin of atmega328.The theory is that if you connect the RX pin of XBee to TX pin of atmega328, The Xbee or XBee compatible Bee can communicate with atmega328 through Serial port. if you connect the RX pin of XBee to the RX pin of atmega328, the RX pin of XBee will connect to the TX of FTDI, the XBee can commucate with you computer through Serial port.


keyestudio Uno R3 is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328 (datasheet), fully compatible with ARDUINO UNO REV3. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz quartz crystal, a USB connection, a power jack, 2 ICSP headers and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started. Note that the two ICSP headers are separately used to program the firmware to ATMEGA16U2-MU and ATMEGA328P-PU, but generally the two chips have been programmed well.The Uno R3 differs from all preceding boards in that it does not use the FTDI USB-to-serial driver chip. Instead, it features the Atmega16U2 programmed as a USB-to-serial converter.The UNO is the best board to get started with electronics and coding. If this is your first experience tinkering with the platform, the UNO is the most robust board you can start playing with.


In this guide we'll take a tour of the '328, looking at each significant functional piece. This guide is going to be fairly high level, most of the concepts will be applicable to any microcontroller. For full details on the '328 see the datasheet from Microchip (note it is very long, technical, and sleep inducing).


I initially used a green LED, which gave no significant change on the python terminal GUI. I thought it was a wavelength mismatch. As I checked the datasheet, the operational spectrum for the phototransistor I chose is actually sensitive in IR range and has cut-off at around 700nm. 041b061a72
