#181227 - No new models
Responding to: Andy Neil's previous message
Andy Neil said:
He says that they're "not end-of-lifing" them - but what that actually means alongside "there's no roadmap for us for 8-bit" is anyone's guess!

Doesn't that say that they will keep (at least some) 8051 chips, but will not introduce any new 8051 variants? Roadmaps are normally used for describing introduction of new families - not to announce the death of existing products (unless the roadmap clearly shows them being replaced)
