Extract Chip ATMEGA8A Binary

We can Extract Chip ATMEGA8A Binary, please view the Chip ATMEGA8A Binary features for your reference:

  1. First Analog Comparator conversion may be delayed

If the device is powered by a slow rising VCC, the first Analog Comparator conversion will take longer than expected on some devices. Problem Fix/Workaround, When the device has been powered or reset, disable then enable theAnalog Comparator before the first conversion when Extract Chip.

  1. Interrupts may be lost when writing the timer registers in the asynchronous timer If one of the timer registers which is synchronized to the asynchronous timer2 clock is written in the cycle before a overflow interrupt occurs, the interrupt may be lost if Extract Chip.

Problem Fix/Workaround Always check that the Timer2 Timer/Counter register, TCNT2, does not have the value 0xFF before writing the Timer2 Control Register, TCCR2, or Output Compare Register, OCR2


  1. Signature may be Erased in Serial Programming Mode If the signature bytes are read before a chiperase command is completed, the signature may be erased causing the device ID and calibration bytes to disappear. This is critical, especially, if the part is running on internal RC oscillator after Extract Chip.

Problem Fix/Workaround: Ensure that the chiperase command has exceeded before applying the next command.

  1. CKOPT Does not Enable Internal Capacitors on XTALn/TOSCn Pins when 32 KHz Oscillator is Used to Clock the Asynchronous Timer/Counter2 When the internal RC Oscillator is used as the main clock source, it is possible to run the Timer/Counter2 asynchronously by connecting a 32 KHz Oscillator between XTAL1/TOSC1 and XTAL2/TOSC2 before Extract Chip.
  2. But when the internal RC Oscillator is selected as the main clock source, the CKOPT Fuse does not control the internal capacitors on XTAL1/TOSC1 and XTAL2/TOSC2. As long as there are no capacitors connected to XTAL1/TOSC1 and XTAL2/TOSC2, safe operation of the Oscillator is not guaranteed if Extract Chip.

Problem fix/Workaround

Use external capacitors in the range of 20 – 36 pF on XTAL1/TOSC1 and XTAL2/TOSC2. This will be fixed in ATmega8 Rev. G where the CKOPT Fuse will control internal capacitors also when internal RC Oscillator is selected as main clock source. For ATmega8 Rev. G, CKOPT = 0 (programmed) will enable the internal capacitors on XTAL1 and XTAL2. Customers who want compatibility between Rev when Extract Chip.

G and older revisions, must ensure that CKOPT is unprogrammed (CKOPT = 1).
