Like AVR series was born with "C" in mind, the new AVR32 instruction set support for advanced operating system.
The majority of CPU architectures were developed before operating system (OS) use became as pervasive as it is today. As a result, CPU cores tend to waste cycles calling the OS or external applications. The AVR32 architecture specifically supports the use of operating systems, in particular the Linux® OS, with cycle saving instructions that include an application call (ACALL) to a subroutine and a system call (SCALL) that calls the operating system routine. The AVR32's advanced MMU and security modes also support advanced operating systems such as Linux.

It's first time when I see such detailed architecture manual (321 pages) before being able to read the stamp of the microcontroller chip.

Really amazing microcontroller architecture !

I hope they have the same success as standard AVR.

this looks like a good architecture for designing RT systems. Though the architecture seems to borrow a lot from the industry's most preffered ARM architecture, it is still something to be watched out for..

Have you got any comparison charts for AVR32 compared to AVR7/9/11 and MIPS regarding speed, area etc ?
