Help with finding a suitable microcontroller Answered
Ok so I'm having a ton of trouble finding a suitable microcontroller, and it seems like nobody else has
every had the same problem because there is no other guides or instructions on it.
So first off it needs to be Arduino programmable, like the 2313, 4313, 85 etc. (AVR programable is it?)
Then I need at least 4k to 8k memory, and about 20 pins.
I also need a small package, but not too small. I am just a hobbyist.
The Attiny24a-SSU in the SOIC 14S1 14 package seems to be the perfect size, but it only has 2k flash, which is not
nearly enough for any real code. So I tried finding the the attiny84a-ssu and I couldn't find any sellers on ebay.
The ATtiny2313-20SU was also a good size, but only has 2k flash. So I tried to find the Attiny4313 in the same package size as the Attiny
2313-20su package size but couldn't find anything readily available.
Now obviously all these microcontrollers are purchasable on some chinese electronics website, but I want it to be a little more readily available, like on eBay.
Also there seems to be little to none documentation on these little guys as far as programming them with an arduino. It takes me hours upon hours sorting through outdated libraries to find the correct library for the board.
So, am I stuck with ordering from expensive electronic stores or is there another board out there that I can get on ebay for a fairly good price.
