Coding Badly

It actually requires far more than that.


The target accuracy is "good enough for reliable serial communication at high speeds".  I stand by what I said.

Not sure how "high" of a high speed you are talking about but set the mcu on internal oscillator and run it at 38400 bps. Put your solder iron to the mcu and watch what happens on the transmission.

It is not pretty.

I can't tell if you're serious so I'll assume you are.  Grossly exceeding the temperature specification is not a valid test.

Which part of it exceeded the temperature specification?

The data sheet specifies an operating temperature way below the ~300C degrees of a soldering iron.

Unless the OP's application requires a soldering iron to be constantly applied (while on) to the micro, I don't think this will pose a problem for its day-to-day operation.
