I have a need to code an application on a very small, inexpensive target like the Arduino Pico.  Will the AVR processor be a target for VFX any time soon?

What volume and what price are you considering for what device?

We used to support AVRs but it was a third party compiler and we do not support it any more. Not enough address registers for modern jobs.

Both Nuvoton ARMs and RP2040 ARMs are where we are going these days for high volume stuff. If you want really low cost the Sunplus 1T 8051 parts are worth looking at. We have clients who use them.

I'm not looking for chips.  I will be using an off the shelf board.  I could use the rPi Pico.  Is that supported?

I have another application for an even tinier processor.  I looked at the Nuvoton parts.  They could be useful, but the initial job requires an off the shelf board.

It'll be done in a few weeks, even if I have to dump other work.
