I'm evaluating Xmega for a new project and really like the idea of a fast (32MHz) internal oscillator. If I can get by with +/- 1.5% accuracy (per the datasheet), are there any issues I should be aware of? This would seem accurate enough for communicating with external peripherals, but has anyone had problems? Thanks.

I don't think there have been any issues. The internal 32Mhz is a good option and the accuracy is very good from what I understand.

~1% is going to be fine for something like UART baud rate generation - not so great for an RTC!

Agreed it's not good for accurate timekeeping (clawson's rtc example) but it's great for general-purpose stuff. No problems at all.

It's +/- 1.5% at 85 C !! So it must be kinda bad at room temp. for them to spec it at that temp, instead of the typical 25 C.
