Platform Atmel AVR: Atmel AVR 8-bit MCUs deliver a unique combination of performance, power efficiency and design flexibility. Optimized to speed time to market-and easily adapt to new ones-they are based on the industry’s most code-efficient architecture for C and assembly programming

Microcontroller ATMEGA8515
Frequency 16MHz
Flash 8KB
RAM 512B
Vendor Microchip


Please use ATmega8515 ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

platform = atmelavr
board = ATmega8515

You can override default ATmega8515 settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest ATmega8515.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

platform = atmelavr
board = ATmega8515

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = atmega8515

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 16000000L


Debugging currently does not support ATmega8515 board.
