When will people ever learn? 8 bits will NEVER die. :-)

In other words, it is simplicity that will never die!

I just disappointed that the goofy thing isn't available yet. I put one on order but don't know when I'll get it. Maybe it will be a Christmas present for me. I think there are a lot more factors than just cost keeping 8-bitters around. Small packages that don't require a robot to handle are pretty important for a lot of applications so I'm glad to see that.really glad to see an eight pin package. Native 5 volt support will keep 8-bit MCUs selling. The complexity of the development environment is pretty key too. I hope the ROM based drivers help with that. The ability to relocate your peripherals to just about any pin will make layout a lot easier. It seems like with every layout I do, there are two signals in the absolute least convenient pins.

Very interesting development. Watch out, might be a 'Microchip killer', the same way as ARM is going to kill Intel within 5 years from now with their 64bits beast.... Just my 5 cents, share your penny in stocks if I was right, okay? ;-)

I think the big thing here is that the 32-bit architecture of the Cortex-M0 is so much simpler that the old 8-bit architectures for things like addressing and accessing different types of memory and suchlike...

I clicked on the Mouser link above to get info on the LPC Xpresso development board. They have a price of $15 for the board, but no information other than the CPU data sheet. Apparently the Dev Board is still vaporware. This happens a lot and makes me mad. How would anyone buy something with no info? If there was a datasheet and the board was something I could use, I probably would have bought one on the spot. Now I will probaly never go back to check and NXP has lost a potential sale. Will they never learn?
