I have a project in mind that needs a tiny,hobbyist friendly chip that could use some processing power.My de facto for those situations is the ATTiny 85 since is cheap,is available in toddler grade packages(DIP and SOIC8) and has a bunch of goodies built in.
I was wondering if we'll ever see a Cortex M0+ beast in 8pin variant?
The one i could find is from another vendor but it didn't have a lot of stuff built in ,especially no ADC.
A great contestant should have in my opinion an ARM core (M0 or M0+) a decent clock speed(48Mhz) and at least the same nr of pheripherals as the Attiny85.An in built opamp on a separate line may help.This way i could do sound processing on a 8pin thingie.(simple filters or effects).Or use it for motor control.(better solution).
At a price point of 3$ should be ok?
