Thanks guys for the heads up, i never read the comments on that video! How embarrassing...
I love MPLAB X over Studio 7, but the Atmel chips seem to fit my needs better.
Because of EEVblog #448, i was hoping to be able to have both worlds. But i guess thats the beauty of the April fools video, if it was true, pigs would fly.
I new Microchip bought Atmel over a year ago, so I was hoping there was a united solution for both Microchip and Atmel chips, looks like its still to early to tell.
Can anyone recommend a device to program Atmel chips?
And it looks like the PicKit3 is the way to go for Microchip. But PicKit3 scares me because of EEVblog #841, or are these issues resolved (blog is from January 2016)? Is there anything better out there for the same price?
