could someone plz tell me at what price i should get an atmega8.
It would be helpful if someone could mention some shops where i can get it in kolkata.
A shop where i had enquired is charging a whooping 350 bucks for the thing !!!!! I thought i read on the forum that it is available at around 200 bucks.

Hi,

Even Rs 200 is over the top. In Bangalore and Hyderabad ATMega8 is available for Rs 80-90. When AVRs first started appearing on the market in India they were very expensive, but now the prices have fallen a lot.

Hey its pretty costly in Bangalore compared to what prices firebolt has told in lamington road.......Here ATMega8515 costs around 235Rs. and ATMega8535 even more.

Hey anyone knows any shop in Bangalore where I can get Mega 32 and Mega 64 ? I tried in Vishal Electronics but it is not there ...

Can you tell me the name of the shop?

Is it ATmega8515 or ATmega8515L the L variants are available at lesser price in most shops. 8515L was available for Rs. 150 when i last inquired.

Hi,

The price difference of the L and the Non-L variants is not much.
the difference comes in the Contoller Family only.

I believe the price difference in the two variants is artificial, but in mumbai - or more particularly lamington road - a mega16L sells at 160 and a mega16 at 200; mega8L Rs. 90 mega8 not available.

Hey Hacksgen,

I got my ATMega8 at ICtronics off Gujarati Gulley near Koti. He sells stuff for very reasonable rates. It was the L variant but I think he has the normal one too. Dont go to Roland, he has lots of stuff but he is a real rip off. I dont know why there is a price difference between (L)ow power and the normal. In the digikey catalogue the prices are identical. Probably shopkeepers just mark up the prices because the full speed versions are in greater demand.

In Bangalore I think cee pee electronics and ankit corporation stock the ATMega32, they definitely stock ATMega16 (around Rs 175), but Im not too sure about 32. Does ATMega8515/8535 have any advantage over ATMega16? How come it is so expensive?

Hello,
One sales person from reputed firm told me that most of chips that is 8051, AVR and PIC are duplicate or thay are diffesctive in some area. Those chip people sell here. Diffective means it will work for lower end application but in certain application it wont work. There for we are getting price difference. Here in Lamington Road I have seen some dealer sell microcontroller double the cost of there competitor it is becoz thay have real chip not duplicate or diffective. Recently I have purchased PIC18F452 and it is duplicate. This particular chip is NOT comes from Microchip but from some other manafacturer. The workmanship and quality speaks.
