The article could guive more details and methodology. By the way Freescale has a web selector that you can use to configure the desired processor. Microchip has an even more powerfull tool called MAPS (Microchip Advanced Parts Selector) that can be used on-line or downloaded to your computer. Should be given more details on free libraries that MCU manufacturers offer. In this point TI, Microchip and Freescale are the best

This article was more amusing that I’d expected. Murphy’s Law applied to code size! Ja! Very good to know now that in the 8 bit MCU world there are the big 3, Atmel, Microchip and Renesas. With all the range of devices offered by these manufacturers is of a good aid to have their web-pages provide some sort of filter and search matrix. What I will have to research a little is that about the MSP430… 16 bit core with all the benefits of an 8 bit? How is that? That MSP430 from TI is blowing a lot of whistles lately.

This article provides a handy checklist to help the electronics design engineers (especially the beginners) in selecting the most suitable 8-bit microcontroller for their applications. I have experienced that most of the time it starts with: "let's see what development tool we have"...or..."What was the microcontroller used in the last design?" :)
