Farba Research Support for the Atmel AVR

Farba Research strongly recommends the AVR family of 8-bit microcontrollers from Atmel Corporation for all 8-bit applications. We have been using the AVR series for quite a while now, in a wide range of embedded applications, and the experience has been so positive that we intend to use only Atmel AVRs for all in-house microcontroller projects. Note that the original (late 1990's) Atmel AVR family has been expanded and embellished into multiple sub-families, to include the TinyAVR series, the MegaAVR series, and the XmegaAVR series. The general term AVR as used herein is meant to apply to all of them.

Here are some reasons why the AVR is a superior microcontroller:

If you are contemplating a new 8-bit microcontroller project, we invite you to contact us for some free advice on using an AVR for the job, and for a free estimate of what we would charge to handle some or all of the job for you.

Farba Research is Atmel Consultant #10846, and is listed in the Consultants section of the Business Partners/Third Party Vendors page on the Atmel Corporation website.
