I just got back from the embedded control seminar and it seems that
everything is going to flash in the near future.
And because of a die shrink for the flash chips they will be cheaper than
the OTP's.
As an example, in early 2001 the PIC16Fxx will be inbtroduced at a price 10%
less than the OTP's 16C77/76/74B/73B.
Also, in Spring 2001, you are guaranteed a 15% price reduction from the June
2000 prices of the PIC16F877/876/874/873 in the new shrink product of these
MCU's.

We'll see. I got interested in the 16F627/8 in the summer of 1999,
now it's late 2000 and I still can't seem to get them in production
amounts.

Great... perhaps we'll get back to early-2000 price levels; here
in Europe, a price reduction of 15% in dollars will soon mean
nothing in the ever-sinking Euro... :)

Great.  I am using the PIC16F87x series so price cuts will be welcomed.

I *still* wish they had Flash based PIC12C50X parts, just for the
simplicity in protoing them.  UV erasure is a pain.  Plus a flash
paty should be cheaper than a JW part.
