Just throwing this up for opinions.
I was introduced to the above mentioned AVR by a fellow freak, and looked the device up on Digikey. For under a $1.00 you get quite a few nice features...
Three 16bit timers
One 12bit timer
Custom Logic block
Three Analog Comparators
Three 8bit DACs
Five Internal references
All for under $1.00usd.
I am going to try one out in a very simple Temperature sensor project using an LM75 temp sensor and a MAX485. I am putting the sensor out in the garage, and connecting the project to my Crestron system for Display.
This looks like a very versatile AVR that I could possibly use to replace/upgrade some existing designs that used outboard IC's for things this has internally.
P.S. I am still not used to seeing the word MICROCHIP in the URL for an AVR
