So, is there anything worth really looking for from Atmel this year? ATtine24/44/84 are interesting, but hoping Atmel might pull a rabit out of the hat.

32 bit AVR's are not interesting?

one AVR with 1 USB 2.0,1 CAN ,4 UART(with RS485 support),2 spi,2 I2C,128Kflash,16KRAM,100PIN,ADC 12bit 8ch,DAC 12bit 2ch ,hardware multiplier,hardware divider (up to 32bit),5 timers 16 bit.
IS GREAT

@yaaavar:

This is not new, check Atmel's ARM family, like AT91SAM7S128. Everything but no AVR, and only 10bit ADC. Price is quite good.

... and a partridge in a pear tree--all for US$3 in qty. 100. ;)

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

The Atmel reps tell me there are some kewl new things coming in 2006: pico-power, 12-bit ADCs, and more SRAM.

Well, one must always take these things with (more than) a grain of salt. From last Spring's roadshow:

ATmega1281 Prod Q405
ATmega2560 Prod Q305
ATmega2561 Prod Q305

ATMega329 Prod Now
ATMega649 Prod Q405
ATMega6490 Prod Q405

AT90CAN32 Prod Q405

etc.

Guillem, what 32-bit AVR? Did I really miss that?

yaaavar, what AVR is that?

Am I really out of the loop that much, or are these all 'announcement' much as theusch has mentioned. My sweet nano-itx was announced 2-3 years ago by Via, and still hasn't appeared, soo....

AFAIK the 32-bit AVRs are just a "rumour" however there are some supporting anecdotes and "selective deafness" by those tied with Atmel in here. Make up your own mind :D.

Seeing is believing.

As of January 15, 2018, Site fix-up work has begun! Now do your part and report any bugs or deficiencies here

No guarantees, but if we don't report problems they won't get much of  a chance to be fixed! Details/discussions at link given just above.

Dear Santa
(C/O Atmel Corporation)

Please continue bringing the AtMega644 out through dsitribution (especially the AtMega644-20-PI ... I'm ready to order 25 when Digikey gets them in stock.)

Please bring me quantities through distribution of the AtMega2560 and AtMega2561 sometime in 2006.

Please add a QFP format to the 64 pin and 100 pin AVR so that I can socket the little darlings.

If you feel the need to introduce new AVRs, my only request is this: Make certain that the new chips ues exactly the same peripherals as the old chips. TCC0 and 3 should be 8-bit counters. TCC1 and 2 should be 16 bit timers. NEVER use a non-standard counter. NEVER leave any feature out that is currently used, as that breaks my code.

Thank You,
Andy

How about a ram size dash number on the mega32 and mega64? 2k is nice but 4k would be nicer.

'644 has 4k; you will just have to buy the extra flash with it.
