    Hi,
    I'm looking for an ATMEGA328P PIC equivalent.

    Will the 18F4520 do?

    Cheers, Camerart.

    The correct MCU is the one that has at least the minimum hardware available to do the job. The hardware differences between the Atmega and PIC are enough to say that there is no "equivalent" -- as in, drop in replacement.

    Don't choose a replacement based upon the corresponding capabilities of the original part. Choose it based upon the requirements of the project.

    Hi J,
    Thanks.
    I'm working with a circuit that uses the ATMEGA328P, and hoped someone, could advice me on a PIC that will do tha same job. My system can't program the ATMEGA.

    Depending on what you mean by dependency. For example, no low end pic has vectored interrupts.

    What features do you need in the PIC18F ? Try PIC18F26K22.

    Hi all,
    Thanks. I have the Microchip comparitor.

    Trouble is,it's a bit of a chicken and egg situation. I'm trying to get some RFM modules to work with Oshonsoft basic programming which doesn't fully cover the Atmega chips, so I have to use one that's supported.

    What I'll do is make a veroboard circuit with an 18F4520, till I understand better how they work, then I'll know how to choose.

    Cheers, Camerart.
