Yes, it's about PIC - but these "Core Independent Peripherals" are also making their way into AVRs; eg,

Microchip’s PIC18-Q43 family adds more Core Independent Peripherals with an extensive development tool ecosystem to improve real-time control.

 

The configurable peripherals on the chip have smart interconnection which allows near-zero latency sharing of data, logic inputs or analog signals without additional code. The series is intended for a wide range of real-time control and connected applications, reducing board space, BoM, costs and time to market.

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

I thought these Core Independent Peripherals and the CCL kind of "glue logic" were what we were already being given in the likes of AVR-01/AVR-1 so is this just PIC playing "catch up" ?

XMEGAs have had this from day one as well.
