    You are NOT getting the point. The thing is the ATmega8/ATmega8A is NOT easily available any more. I have tried major Dealers in Mumbai, I am their regular volume purchaser the are telling there is huge shortage of these.

    And any Atmel uC even ATtiny2313 were NOT as cheap as ATmega8

    I and ATmega88 and ATmega48 are not easily available!

    Please comment only if you have check stocked with some dealers!

    While web surfing I came NSK Electronic Blore site and saw ATmega8 listed at Rs 55 I tried to buy at once.

    But when I called them this morning they quoted Rs 150! And told web price is Old.

    Hmm that could be true ...

    Maybe a week or two thing will be normal ... Sometimes it does happen.

    You can try calling mehta bro's in LRM Delhi ...and if they have stock pick it all up.

    BOTH of them don't have ATmega8 !!!

    Its a common fact in Lamington Road and All India Electronics Market and everyone knows that ATmega8 is NO more available!

    Rajhit Traders (Mumbai) Quoted Rs 110 !!! For 100 units. Everyone tells "Don't you know about the shortage, sir"
