The move to 0.5mm pin pitch is a real pain for amateurs and small quantity vendors.

That's such a tine market compared to real customers, and it's not really a problem for true hobbyists.

The PIC32's should also come on adaptor pcb's which will plug into motherboard sockets.


 
Soldering Welding a TQFP is not very complicated.

But soldering it is slightly more complex.

The prototypes that I have made have soldier without much trouble. And in a small company where I work, there were five technicians who manually placed and soldered the elements in their first 3 years. Then to increase production, they started asking for partially finished PCBs from China.

Welding is the common term in some countries.

Now I'm confused. Which term do you use when or where? I was going for:

Not to belabor the point of this thread (but it is offtrack to a discussion of 'welding' terminology)....
 
An interesting article (that is back on track) relating to MIPS that I just ran across,

The two counts I have at present against the pic32 are Harmony and the dev tools. 1+ minute after build to debug times on mid size my projects are hard to accept after using jtag and arm. Plus, last I checked there isn’t support for debugging external memory. Why, microchip, isn’t this a priority to improve the dev tools?
