Anyone looked into the AVR? from ATMEL.
Ive been glancing at it today and its good, in fact it appears to be
very good. Ive even approached microchip some the the features like a
1.8V operating supply and all microchip could say was well we can seen
the need. But they dont seem to be able to respond, could this chip be
the next possible microcontroller craze ? taking over from the PIC. We
now have pics in everything will this begin to change i wonder ?

Robert,

I agree.  I just got a bunch of AT90S1200s -- $3 each.  The instruction set
and architecture is -extremely- nice.
I'm putting off one project that I was going to do in a C65 until the
bigger AVR chips arrive.  I can see myself getting into AVR in a big way.
And basically out of PICs.

Certainly worth a look.

You might also want to look at National COP800.  They have
some pretty interesting parts also.

I saw a reference that indicated the AVR used 8051 instructions.  Is
this true?  in which case I am not interested at all.  I hate 8051
architecture

It seems to me that Mchip will have to start looking very hard
at the competition in the market. The low(ish) price used to be
a big advantage, but other manufacturers are moving into this
niche at a pace that Mchip doesn't seem capable of sustaining.

I doubt it if any other manufacturer out there has one pathetic
flash chip in its whole range of products.

It is a pity that Mchip doesn't offer a true upward path for
development. The range is ok to run Microwave ovens and remote
controls, but as soon as you want a reprogrammable chip to do
some real work, you have to migrate to another manufacturer.

Compare the 17C high-end (hahaha) chips with some of the Motorola
parts. Price-wise there is virtually no difference, but functionally
there is absolutely no comparison. The 17C5XX's look like 555's
compared to the Motorolas.

In stead of buying a $3500 ICE, you can hook your PC to the chip
on the board.

I am beginning to revise my opinion of a few micro manufacturers.

The Atmel Resources List has been set up by Kalle Pihlajasaari and has
it's own Atmel
list server Chat Group. As a matter of fact he set it up to reduce the
signal to noise ratio generated by these devices on this list.

You can send a message to EraseMEatmel-requestspam_OUTspamTakeThisOuTpic.co.za with the word JOIN in
the message
body Use LEAVE instead of JOIN to remove yourself from the list.  Send
all
commands to the list from the same Email address.
