A while back was looking for a 8bit Avr having 2xUART, and got some tips; among which a link to a very good chip selection web-page:
I was recommended to buy a 324pb (I think), but I ended up ordering a 328p (somehow I got that that also should have 2xUART),
when I got it I (think) I realized that it wasnt capable of 2xUART after all.
Now Im at it again; consulting the above said link; I find to my surprise that it seems that there are NOT 28 DIP chips to dip anymore ?? 28pin not in table.
(that after making a first conclusion that, well; there seem to be no 2xUART in 28 PIN format)
(implicit is that I want pins )
should i revert to my 2xMCU setup (SPI com inbetween) to (try) get a 2xUART ?
