Before ATTiny

I have been working with the predecessor of ATTiny2313  -- the AT90S2313 -- for many years now and it has been a GREAT chip.  The on-board serial comm and SPI are very helpful.  I also like the AVR assembly language, which was pretty easy to learn.  I have worked with their small 8-pin chip (ATTiny25) a little but unfortunately, it is limited.

The real fun

Guys, you've been talking about Atmel stuff, which is good, but.. there is something better, somewhere else.

For the real fun, give yourselves a try with the newest Renesas RL78/G10: http://am.renesas.com/products/mpumcu/rl78/rl78g1x/rl78g10/index.jsp

Or for something more beefy, look at the RL78/G12: http://am.renesas.com/products/mpumcu/rl78/rl78g1x/rl78g12/index.jsp

I am just talking about something comparable to -or even better than- the ATtiny pricewise and which comes in low pin count packages, but which renders ATtiny in the dust, starting with the 16-bit vs. 8-bit capabilities, power consumption, etc...

Enjoy!

Great thoughts Jeremy. I think a lot of people are starting to crave the hands on approach and finding the arduino to be a peculiar fit. I think this could be the post that encourages many of them to just re-connect with their roots and jump into ATtiny!
