AT32AP7 is dead

Max just came back from "Embedded world 2010", with several evaluation board samples from hardware vendors. The biggest gift this year is a piece of development package from Atmel: AVR32EVK1100 board with a AT32UC3A0512 microcontroler, which cost more than 100 euro if you buy it.

He browsed the attached CD and surprisedly found that almost half doc introduced another series AT32AP7***. Maybe it is a parent series of AT32UC3, it is first guess of Max. After googling for some time, he realized that the AT32AT7 is dead and not recommanded for new design.

An important lesson: check the homepage of vender at first, which status is your chip, before you are going to use it.
