#189553 - Certainly a wry smile is needed
Responding to: Jacob Boyce's previous message
Jacob Boyce said:
I am staying away from TI from here on out. You cannot trust that the micro is going to be around for even two years, they just NRND the whole LM3Sxxx line of their micros.


*Wry smile* Yes, and that was touted as going to kill off 8-bit.
Shows the marketing types really will say anything at all.

There will likely be quite a few more *obsolete* 32 bitters too, whilst the 8 bit devices tick along steadily.
