Anyone fancy soldering one of these:

They sort of imply that they are shipping, but they aren't, of course. They are actually referring to the SOT-23 devices.

Silabs produces MCUs in similar 2x2 mm QFN but much more feature rich.

"available now"? So Comical Ali still writes Atmel press releases?

The only tiny4/5/9/10 I could find are tiny4-TSHR at Avnet. 4500 available, minimum quantity 4500, multiple of 4500, factory lead time 17 weeks.

No signs of tiny5s, 9s, 10s.

Available now? Yes, sure, hahaha.

Stealing Proteus doesn't make you an engineer.

But now I start to understand why they had to give up 16 reg's ;)
But I still think it would have been better with 32 reg's but perhaps implemented the hardware so the 16 reg's was placed in RAM, so it would take 3 or 4 clk to do operations on those. But at least that way it could "eat" old code.

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.

These are OTP, Atmel's are flash.

The pin compatible Flash family is available for prototyping, while the OTP are aimed to a mass production.
