    I have salvaged a circuit board and on it was a PIC16C63A-04/SP. I have only found datasheets on google and want to know if this can be used like an Atmega328.

    What do you mean can be used like the Atmega328? Are you thinking of using the device you have? I think your going to have problems there. It's one time programmable. I think the only time you can reliably re-program it is if you knew where the last address of program memory was and start your code from there but again your gong to struggle if they have used all the code space.

    Thanks. I didn't know it was a one use thing. I was hoping I could use it in a breadboard. But I have some Atmega328 chips coming.

    That's what the C is. The re-programmable versions have an F in the part number like PIC16LF84A. These parts are flash devices and can be re-programmed.

    Thanks Adam. I read through the PDF but didn't understand it very well...

    BTW: This chip came from a control board used in a dust collector. The board controlled whether or not the filters were cleaning due to differences in the clean side and dirty side. It is called a DeltaP controller.
