It’s Thursday, so what better day to go back, way back to the first AVR device? The ceramic sample, equipped with an AT90S1200, was initially created to demonstrate the speed of the AVR in comparison to other 8-bit architectures, namely PIC, 8051 and HC05. In fact, this was also the first actual prototype of the board, which would later go on to spur an entire Maker Movement.
