This in the news: "Microchip sues Zilog over 8-pin microcontrollers" and it's not April 1st ? Microchip used to be an engineering focused company, who took a small Micrcontroller core, and used it very well. Now, it seems Zilog must be taking a chunk of their pie, and they cannot compete on technical merit alone ? So, let's glance at what innovation they claim to have ? ...
