Platform Atmel megaAVR: 8-bit MCUs Built for Real-time Control with Core Independent Peripherals combining intelligent hardware peripherals along with the low-power capability of an AVR core, megaAVR microcontrollers (MCUs) broaden the effectiveness of your real-time control systems.

Microcontroller ATMEGA1608
Frequency 16MHz
Flash 16KB
Vendor Microchip


Please use ATmega1608 ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

platform = atmelmegaavr
board = ATmega1608

You can override default ATmega1608 settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest ATmega1608.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

platform = atmelmegaavr
board = ATmega1608

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = atmega1608

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 16000000L


Debugging currently does not support ATmega1608 board.
