What will you do when you add a new modification? Pay to get another burn on that chip?Yea I heard they are easy to use but I wanted to reuse my chip I saved.
Or something happens and you get another project?
Or the chip takes a dump
Can you data log a chip to fine tune or find a problem?
Chips are so 1999, but this is just my opinion.
Using a chip is like posting pics with a Polaroid. Again, JMO.
