Re: Moving from 8051 to AVR

What are you talking about. When you develop in high volume you pick your
micro and its manufacturer GIVES you the assembler, ICE, and all the

assembler= less competition.

Assembler= greater choice of microcontrollers


I am not talking about 1-2kB programs here.
If you have sigificant amount of code written in assembler,
you are locked into that architecture.
If someone comes out with a new chip at half the price and you have
500kB assembler code, you cannot easily change that.

This whole thread is about 8 bit microcontrollers like the 8051 and the AVR.
Noone is talking about 500K of code.
