A problem with Xmega is that there are no PDIP.


I think it is good PDIP alternative to go to EasyEda and JLCPCB. They provide and assemble the "basic components" parts at low price, for stocked "extended components" they charge $3 for putting the reel in the assembly line.
They have a few AVR Xmega.
There are more other AVR's, but not in large quantities, it's like surplus.
With some effort hobbyists can have there own board design with the all the tricky parts soldered, and at very affordable prices.

BTW:
I am happy to get the 2083 today. Only at start it missed the license, i had to put it manually.
After the UPDI-software-only 2082 we now have Xtiny.dat files.
That I need an add-on to compile them... was a new surprise.
But I fully understand the reason.
Although I may not yet really need it, I hate incomplete Bascom.
So I think I will buy the the add-on. It may cost slighty over 50 but less then 100.

Just thought I'd mention that my Win10 upgrade to Version 2083, followed by my addition of the XTiny Add On, both worked perfectly.

Thank you!

yes, it is either this or charge all users for updates. Since 25 years i put my private money in developing and free updates. There are not advertisements on this site except for a few banners on the main page. And because i do not believe in dongles there is a lot of piracy.
With an add on only the ones that require these processors pay. Seems more fair.
And it is a good way to measure if there is interest for new series.

.....ADD ONS.... EXTRA.... Who could not get the fact that it cost extra?
Any extra cost something...get it through your thick skulls. This is not for free!
I will be glad to pay for something improved. Even for Updates.
May be you people how think life is for free... deaath will charge the funeral!!!
Best regards to the unaware users!
