Hi all (and Atmel technical sales in particular :-)
I've been using the Tiny12 for a while now and am quite satisfied with it. But now there is a call for more functionality, and that translates into one or two more IO pins. Do you have any suggestions for a device that would do that?
The features I really need (and have on the Tiny12) are:
No forgetting with reset (as the 90S1200 does)
Easy distinguishing of reset source (watchdog, external, power, brown out)
Crystal driving (there has to be a crystal here)
Low power (battery driven, I need to disable the crystal from time to time)
Little area (SOIC-8 or SSOP-20 are fine until die mounting becomes an issue)
I'd also like to know if there are up-and-coming controllers that will do this. The perfect thing would be to put a Tiny12 in an SSOP-12 can with more IO.
