When designing new controller boards, we tend to use the same old MCU's, usually a M48 family or the T25 family. Sometimes though, we need just a few more IO pins then what the T25 has. What do the freaks choose when they are in this situation? T24,T26..... T1634?
I'm not looking for whats best, as that will change with the requirements, just looking at what others usually reach for when the need arrives.
