    hi all,
    i'm new to programing uC. i have an ATMEGA 32 L that a college lecturer gave to me to practice on. we have been studying the 8051 with a different lecturer.
    what i want to know is my knowledge on the 8051 sufficient to program the ATMEGA 32?
    do they use the same programing language? and if so what other conciderations should i have
    thank you!:)

    The atmega32 uses a different instruction set than the 8051 microcontroller.

    Do you know how to program in C language?

    If you desire to program your ATMEGA32, you have a couple of choices to make if you wish to take advantage of the free software development tools that are available.

    1. Program in AVR Assembly Language. (If so, download AVRSTUDIO4 from ATMEL website)
    2. Program in C Language. (If so, download WINAVR from www.sourceforge.net in addition to AVRSTUDIO4)

    The next decision you will need to make is what programmer to use. That is unless the school you attend already provides you access to an AVR programmer.
