Indeed, but it's very handy for picking up those spare cycles and doesn't have the overhead of an interrupt (enter, load pointers, move data, check end conditions, leave).

Lovely parts. The only thing I'd add is some DMA, even a single channel. It's so handy when you need to pump a load of data over a serial bus with minimal overhead.

Oh, thanks! That looks ideal.   I didn't know they were doing xMEGA... MEGAx... XMEGAMEGA or whatever this is, but I'm glad they have 5V capable parts now.

XMEGA DFLL USBSOF needs manual COMP tuning - why?
Oh, I should clarify, I was not talking about wake-up from sleep, I was talking about the initial plug-in and power up of a bus-powered device with a USB 3.0 port.

Fine tuning a crystal in code
I did try this but it's not great.   First you have to calibrate the crystal. That is tricky because you need to measure the error and the temperature of the crystal...

Fine tuning a crystal in code
I was impressed by the "Wave Ceptor" watches they make. Some are full 6 band, i.e. world-wide coverage of low frequency time codes.   About accuracy, I think millisecond...
