I was just looking over their AVR microcontroller products. They are made at 800 nanometers! It's like the dark ages technology-wise, but sales are growing.

Their popular 8 bit AVR product runs around 20MHz and sells for about $1 each. Sounds like 1990 technology.

Sales have been growing about 20% YoY for 8 bit AVR microcontrollers and 40% yoy for their newer 32 bit AVR products.

The AVR products were designed in Norway. Atmel bought the Norwegian company.
