Perhaps a silly question, but how do I contact the official powers that be to correct a presumed website "typo"?

Hi!

Me and my team (biologists / docs without proper microcontroller experience, so pardon in advance for any further silly questions) have been picking an MCU  for a project we have, and hare ran into the following:

 

The microchip webpage for ATxmega128A4U (https://www.microchip.com/wwwpro...) claims "SRAM Bytes: 8"

 

That seems... a little bit... too small ? blush

 

The datasheet seems to suggest more optimistic 8 kilobytes of  RAM.

 

I presume the datasheet is the more correct one here, tried contacting via "website feedback" to no avail (maybe they don't like my IP or something).

 

It would seem nice to correct that kind of mistake. Any way to reaching the folks in charge besides the contact form?

This topic has a solution.

This error (and several others) appeared immediately after the purchase of Atmel by the Microchip in 2016.
Many have already written about this, but this is not of interest to the microchip.
Specialists who have long used Atmel's products understand everything correctly.
There are few young specialists, so everyone is happy with everything.
Nobody cares.
