I  just went to look at an "Atmel" Product Page, and got this:

 

 

So now it's "Microchip AVR"

  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

Does one rationally expect otherwise? Was surprised to see the Tiny814/etc spec sheet still in AVR format. Maybe they are actually going to keep some of the AVR "brand identity".

They seem to be keeping the AVR Brand - But not the Atmel brand.

Understandable, even if we cannot feel comfortable saying Microchip AVRs.

The "higher-level" family pages still have the old Atmel style (just with  a Microchip logo slapped on):

Interesting, and I guess somewhat 'stock phased'.

ie as the distributor pipeline of Atmel branded parts flushes out, and Microchip branded devices ripple thru, we can expect more and more such changes.

The highest turnover parts would be first.

I can't decide whether this is good or bad.

But I got an add/tweet/something that said "Microchip SAMD processor", and it sure looked weird!

I think this online ordering also supports all the Atmel ATFxx PLDs, which is good news.
