I routinely work with this chip and so far none of the problems you
describe apply here. Support is great, availability is great,
documentation is acurate and at least as good as any other
documentation from competitors.

All in all I think this whole familly of chips is plain and simple
great. You have a good scaleability and there is even a pin compatible
32 bit variant of the chip etc. etc.

I don't work for Renesas. I'm just a happy user.
