I'm mostly concerned with the serial port, SPI port, I2C and PWM. Are they hardware, or bit-banged?
How much overhead does Sketch add?
What is the instruction cycle time of the Atmel chips?
Or - if someone could point me to a (hopefully single) source for the above information, I would be most appreciative.
Also, PicBasic creates macros that then call the Microchip assembler, so it produces an ASM file. If you want to know what the compiler is doing, you can look at the created ASM file. I don't see anything like that in Sketch. Is there a way I can see the actual instructions being programmed into the ATMEL?
