For some time I've been wondering what the "AVR" stands for. Does anybody know ?
My guess is in the subjectling :-)
The quick black AVR jumped over the lazy PIC.
What boots up, must come down.
initials of the inventors
admin's test signature
..oh ya, and I'm glad it's not "PIC" because when you search on ebay using PIC you get everything that has a "picture" in the text.. not many accidental hits have AVR..
but these days, getting a lot of Cybiko's - I guess those flopped in the market, has an 2313 in it? Anybody know what it's doing, listed as a "coprocessor"

AVR doesn't have an official meaning (see Atmel FAQ), although there have been lots of guesses (the initials of the inventors one seems popular, it might be the actual meaning).. my personal fav:
Avalible Very Rarely
Not really applicable anymore, but when AVR's came out they were hard to get because Atmel didn't enough fabs...
