Dear all, it looks like the user friendly DIP ATmega MCU's are becoming obsolete here in Europe. Not considering the ones produced in China, which I never have used so far and it takes forever to get them shipped. I think everyone will agree that plugging anything in DIP into good quality breadboard is a great feeling. I mean that soldering the TQFP and MQFP 44-60 pin MCU's are still "okay" with sweating, but still it is something to avoid if there is a chance, because, one needs to purchase a suitable adapter board, then good soldering tools are highly needed.
So i found a retailer here, who sells still original ATMEL parts in DIP and for reasonable /nice price. Is it worth to stack-up for unknown future and buy some DIP chips in case end of the world is near?
