Atmel Availability, Was -Anyone have a solid...

What it boils down to is this- going with Atmel really screwed up a
project I worked on. I'm going to be very wary before ever designing an
Atmel part into anything that will be going into production.
Of course, Atmel is building more fab capacity to help address these
problems. I'm not sure why their AVR prices are so low - seems like they
could charge a bit more and still compete against similar products (like
PICs.) I think they wanted their flash parts to compete agains OTPs,
Unfortunately, this sort of thing can happen to any company. I personally
had a project screwed over by Intel, when they discovered that their Flash
process didn't work on the production-sized fab line they were planning on
making them on. Sigh.
