#190326 - Depends which price you look at
Responding to: Gary Peek's previous message
Gary Peek said:
Atmel has added a number of "LP" series chips in recent times. Are any of you using them?

Most of them don't have quite the complement of on-board I/O that other families like AVR do, but they are more or less 8051 code compatible, and some are close to being pin-compatible except for the pins providing the new features.

For example, the AT89LP828 and AT89LP6440 have some larger pin counts and in DIP packages too, but how many people need that, especially considering that the prices are somewhat high compared to AVR?

The AT89LP51/AT89LP52 are cheaper than any 44 pin AVR :)

We use the AT89LP51RB2 in production, using this tool chain

which has a simulator and programmer.

If you need small with ADC, then SiLabs have F850/F860 & for 5V operation, the F5xx series.
