What is the difference between Nano 328p-au and 328p-mu? Does it have to do with the updated bootloader or is it just a different board design? I want to make sure I order the correct one and I could not find a proper answer so far. Thanks.

    The only difference is the MCU package. If you're ordering the pre-assembled Nano boards, it makes no practical difference. Jul 1, 2019 at 12:50

The AU and MU on the chip just refer to the shape of the chip. AU is TQFP and MU is VQFN.
