Pricing for the F85x/6x MCUs in 10,000-unit quantities begins at $0.40 (USD).


The most-equipped model appears to be available for around $0.80 apiece now.


IMHO, there are two noteworthy things in this:

- SiLabs who pushes ARMs aggressively in the last years still has significant customers for the '51 (probably from automotive area)

- SiLabs who was the "high-$" '51 producer ever since, dropped the prices to the 10s-cent area (compare with a similarly equipped 'F3xx).
