Frankhttps://hackaday.io/FrankBussWhat's the point of slow and difficult to program 8 bit microcontrollers (e.g. for PICs, the optimizing C compiler costs a lot of money and has some quirks), if you can get a 32 bit ARM microcontroller like the ATSAMD09C13A for 0.62 EUR, with full optimizing GCC support?Good and bad question, Frank :-D (yg)

www.synthimuse.comWhen is ther egoing to be support for processor load profiling? I'd like to know how many spare cycles I have in an intensely loaded interrupt-driven application.

Idohttps://hackaday.io/igendelThe modern 8-bit PICs are awesome, but are there plans to update the xc8 compiler to newer C standards, maybe even C++?
I second this C++ question. I would love to have xc8 support C++

Jonathanhttps://hackaday.io/jbruneauAny intention to replace the PIC16 core with a AVR8, while keeping the same peripherals? ATTiny817 is a good start, but isn't as feature packed as, say, a PIC16F1769.

Yannhttp://hackaday.io/whygeeThe new PIC32 with integrated SDRAM looks very cool, are more parts of this kind planned ?
8
Yann (again)The strategy to choose MIPS over ARM was bold, did that pay off over the years ?
10
Orkhanhttps://hackaday.io/azerimakerQ1. Any future plan to make Atmel Studio available for MAC and/or Linux? Q2. Any intention to merge MPLAB and Atmel Studio?
11
Jonathan (again)What is the biggest market segment for 8bit MCUs?
12
sparky-summerThe recent datasheets (since the last 3-4 years :P) for the 8 bit PICS do not describe well the pin circuitry, such as if there are protection diodes (to vdd/gnd) on the pin. Where can I get information on this matter?
13
Orkhan AmirAslanazerimakerI recently got into a project where I needed an MCU w/ 4 I2C ports. For the prototype I ended up using Teensy 3.6. Is there AVR/PIC alternative w/o BGA package ?

Is there any decent free development toolchain for PIC on Mac/Linux? Last time I tried to get into PIC as a hobbyist I haven't found any. MPLAB Xpress is web-based.
17
Ido (igendel)AVR folks are wondering... what's in store for the Xmega line? Will it be developed too?
