@qhb: Sure, im aware of this hardware- software-breakpoint thing.
But when we develop for big quantities we have to choose a device that fits the job regardless if it offers some nice-to-have features or not. In the past years, i did a ton of projects on 16F882/883 which are especially annoying because they only break at the next instruction which often is in the next subroutine.
Only recently i switched to 16F18854 as a new favorite because of its awesome core independant peripherals.
However, even 16F18854 is a pretty new device, it features once again only one hardware breakpoint.
If it wasnt for the money, i would like to switch again to the brandnew 16F18455 family simply because of its
3 hardware-breakpoints and its 12-bit AD. Unfortunately, it starts with a 14k flash model which is a total waste for the most small and medium complex projects.
i would really love to see a 16F18454 as a smaller, 7k flash member of that family.
