Subject: Re: infrared remote (and stuff)
From: Andreas Zwirtes (zwirtes_at_gmx.de)

Thanks for the tip, that's a very interesting starting point.

I'll use the AVR instead of the PIC for some reasons.
First it has some communication possiilities that avoid the
burden to delay the bits out. That is necessary for adding
IR remote stuff. Then it's ASM code is better readable
(more registers etc). And I think I need - guess what -
more power! ;) (Also for IR and comm stuff). The
device should be capable of bidirectional comm to act
as experimental platform.

Also building programmers is much easier with the
AVRs. That's important for anybody who wants to
build one himself. I think the 12V programming scheme
is a bit complicated.
