Getting a new Atmega chip

Hello all

Working with my friend Colin on his party and after much trubb we removed his Atmega chip and found that one of the pins was broken. Can we just order another chip and flash it with the firmware 3 upgrade for instant gravy? I have the adafruit usbtiny programmer although I never really flashed any chips before. Any tips? Thanks!!!

Best,
-Reid

  • Go to Adafruit and read their pages on the attiny and don't forget the fuse settings
  • Oh and when I say order another chip, I mean from Mouser.

    And thanks Altitude!
  • Hey Reid --
    That's the chip. Digikey has them too, and the Atmega164a variants should work OK too.
    Let us know how it goes!
