I don't know of any clones per se. I have seen discussions here of AVR "cores" that can be used with programmable logic devices.

What would be the benefit to these clones? The prices of AVRs have dropped; the features have gone up. For example, the Mega8 was about US$5 in quantity 100 when it first came out. The equivalent Mega88 has more features, and it is US$1.21 in quantity 100. The upcoming Xmega version, ATXMEGA8E5, has hints that it will be about $1 in that quantity. So would an 8KB flash, 1KB SRAM, 25 I/O clone be compatible and priced low enough to make it worth using versus the "real thing"?

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

Might be an issue of availability rather than cost.

However, quite a variety of AVRs seem to be available in street shops all over the world, even in places where I would not expect.

But if that clone cost were half the price of the real thing, it might give one some incentive to purchase the fake. If you do, however, you won't get much support here because nobody will be able to guess about what operates correctly and what does not.

The insides of the Clones are fully opposed to the originals, and there is hope that they are not as easy to crack as the originals.

I suspect that you are practicing "wishful thinking".
