The AVR is a nice microcontroller and there are already a lot, but there are still to little to choose from? Often you need one for a project which is not available.

For example. Not enough pins and enough speed, or too many or too little pins and all other features ok, or, no multiplier, or just to little speed and enough features, or, no usart, no dac, no multiplier, not enough SRAM. Now and then you bump into one of these problems. Do other programmers of other microcontroller also bump into the same problem? WYHIWYG?

 And it is your job to make the best of the available resources. Compromise, compromise...

This is why God invented Cortex.

Actually, i think it was ARM that gave us Cortex......

RES, time to move onto something newer. The AVR was great in it's time.

I think it is something of an inherent risk in a single-source architecture?

 

Hence, as clawson said, may be time to look at the multitude of Cortex offerings...

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  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
