xmega - sample I/O pin at 74Mhz?
I calculate only ~12K samples. A FIFO like this: Could hold 18 channels of data for that time period. You could also rig up something using...

xmega - sample I/O pin at 74Mhz?
No, not much can, including many ARMs. You can buy a dedicated FIFO buffer chip which will allow you to latch data into it based on an external clock however.

First circuit ever (eagle schematic). Will it work?
Be aware that switching regulators will require suitable component selection and PCB layout. :)

The biggest fault I find is the lack of voltage specifications for the battery, and how you are managing supply voltages.

Writing to flash
You can attach MRAM to the xmega external bus, and use it like SRAM, but non volatile. Runs up to 35ns timing to boot. The downside is cost: 128KB runs $15 on DigiKey (qty 1)

Does 6pin ICSP header offer everything I need atmega328P?
Virgin chips are set to use the internal oscillator (8MHz) divided by 8 (CKDIV8 fuse). In any case, you can usually get the device to spin its wheels by injecting a logic level...

Yes, you can. As long as you don't do something silly and pick an incompatible oscillator setting (like low frequency external).

No real updates on them. Lots of people seem to be having issues with buggy silicon these days - even TI's MSP430F5438 has some big "this feature basically is broken, don't use it...

First circuit ever (eagle schematic). Will it work?
As stated before: - Reset pullup - ISP header - Decoupling cap on the AVR. Now the big questions: What is Vbatt? Is it in range for all of your devices? Remember a 1.5V alkaline...

ATMEGA128 Power Problem
If you're powering right from a wallwart make sure it's a regulated switchmode model.

USB Atmel device - made to look like a coms port
