There are several families of automotive temperature range AVRs listed on the Atmel Web site, in particular Tiny25/45/85 and Mega48/88/168. Posted datasheets indicate that these will be T, T1, and Z suffixes on the part numbers.

I cannot see any of these models listed at the distributors. The closest is a weird "X" suffix for Tiny45 at DigiKey.

Does anyone know if/when these will be "real"? We have an outdoor industrial app where the extended temperature range would be a "good 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.

Dumb question: Have you contacted your local rep?

Not yet. I hate to cry "Wolf!" one more time. I've asked about so many Atmel parts with datasheets & Web site pages that are phantoms that I thought I'd see if anyone had samples or real parts in their grubby hands first.
