weather 1million or 1.5million being produced would alter cost to the

Is it that the 16F628 had a shorted design cycle (because most of the work
was done on the F84?) than the 16F84 ?? I do not know.

My biggest gripe is why their is no medium level suppliers around, I can go
local and buy 1-25 at a reasonable price, but the price sucks for say 100 -
500, and microchip will not touch me with A a decent order, or B a Credit
Card, which as a pensioner I can not get as I do not make much money, and
most of the stuff I build is for personal use, or supplying kits for courses
I was running as a volunteer teacher to "kids at risk"
