Hi students I hope you all are doing great. In today’s post, we will have a detailed look at Introduction to ATmega8. This type of microcontroller was the first time created in 1996 and eight-bit controller based on the CMOST technique and member of AVR (Advanced Virtual RISC) group of controllers. Its structural arrangement based on the RISC or reduced instruction set computer architecture.
in small size assembly, it performs numerous function through providing us from spending amount to buy exterior components which are already assembled on it. In today’s post, we will have a detailed look at its working, features, applications, and some other related parameters. So let’s get started with Introduction to ATmega8.
Introduction to ATmega8
- The ATmega8 is created through the Atmel. It comprises of Harvard structure which functions with the RISC.
- The packaging in which it exits are three in numbers and are PDIP, MLF, TQFP. There are twenty-eight pinouts of PDIP configuration nd MLF and TQFP has thirty two pinout configuration.
- It uses flash memory of eight Kilobytes for storage with that it comprises of one kilo RAM and five twelve bytes EEPROM.
- Some other factors this module has are watchdog timer, brown out sensing, and 5 sleep mode.
- There are ten-bit analog to digital converter is assembled on this device which used in detection connection has six channels if used in PDIP casing and has eight channels for MLF and TQFP packaging.
- In this module, the communication protocols are SPI, I2C, and UART.
Features of ATmega8
- it comprises of eight-bit AVR central processing unit.
- There are twenty-eight pinout exits in this module.
- The voltage range over which it operates is +4.5 V to +5.5 Volts.
- Out of twenty-eight pinouts, it has twenty-three input and output pinouts.
- It uses SPI USART and 2 wire serial interface protocol for communications.
- It does not have JATG interfacing like other controllers.
- it has an analog to digital converter of six-channel and provides ten bits of resolution.
- It has 2 eight-bit of timers and one sixteen-bit counter.
- There is one analog comparator is assembled in its structure.
- It does not have any digital to analog converter.
- There are three pulse width modulation channels it has.
- It uses an exterior oscillator according to frequency range for zero to eight megahertz it uses ATMEGA8L and for zero to sixteen megahertz frequency uses ATMEGA8 oscillator.
- It has an inner oscillator of zero to eight megahertz frequency.
- It has a flash memory of eight-byte.
- The ram of one kilobyte it has,.
- The range of functioning temperature is -55°C to +125 Centigrade.
Pinout of ATmega8
- there are twenty-eight pinouts of this module which are mentioned here with the details.
