Looking for someone to help us debug why our bootloader process (using arduino IDE and mkii) not working consistently.

We designed a very simple arduino pro mini (almost exact, moved a few pins around) and are having erratic results on programming the bootloader. It uses the atmega328p au (smd TQFP) chip.

We have scoped it, and found in most failed cases, the SPI clk is ok, MOSI going in ok, and MISO coming out seems to be not responding, or very weak signal at best on the failed units.

Ironically, the same board, parts kit, sometimes works flawlessly. We are using a mkII atmel ISP programmer. (same results using arduino UNO)

Thinking of building a fixed jig with zif TQFP adapter to test as isolated as possible the atmega328p AU chip only. Putting in an oscillator as optional element in case chip is set to external clock ?

Looking for someone more familiar with all the possible pitfalls of a TQFP chip, and ways of isolating loading/setting fuses, and help us prep for a product...
