STM8S003F3P6 for €0.16 / $0.17 a piece,  that's cheap. I ordered some, just to be sure that it's for real. Expect more small @oshpark  projects here in the future ;-)

@Ken Yap found a similar offer around 11.11 but the seller wouldn't ship to Germany (for whatever reason), so I missed out.

Hope there's more than a slab of copper in them :)

It took some time and the packaging leaves a lot to wish for but the order finally arrived. It's more than copper - working tiny micros, indeed ;-)

I've heard that the Chinese have now mastered the technology of making VLSI circuits in copper so you may still be right. 😜

@de∫hipu  That explains why my PCBs have been spontaneously reorienting themselves N-S! Thanks! 😜
