I'm thinking about using an ATtiny11 in an infrared tranceiver application. The chip would be driven by an external 6 MHz clock from another chip and would have the responsibility for modulating the transmission at 38kHz.
The reason I am thinking about using it is that it is cheaper than a 555 timer and associated caps and resistors, and uses less board space.
The reason I am thinking about NOT using it is that it has been said somewhere here that the chip is to be phased out.
Does anybody have any real information of the ATtiny product end of life plan? And is there any place to go to see such plans?
