I'm new to AVRfreaks and AVR in general. I'm doing a project and I can't decide which AVR is right for me.
Here is what I want to do:
- Have a simple user interface with a small LCD panel and keypad
- Send input to an Analoge Devices arbitrary waveform generator.
The final product is going to be an amplifier. All I need the AVR for is to set up the waveform generator, and to do that I need a user interface that I would like the AVR to also implement. The waveform generator uses a 32 bit memory address, so I thought it would be better to use the 32 bit version of the AVR.
I was looking at the AP7, but the ball grid array scares me a bit. I've never built a PCB for something like that. Are there open-source PCBs for it maybe?
The UC3 looks easier to use, but I'm not sure if I could implement a user interface on it easily.
Thanks for your help,
