    Here is a link to a lengthy thread that covers the topic fairly well.

    Hello Vinod,

    PIC and AVR are two different family of MCU. Both of them are popular with hobbyiest. But now AVR is becoming more popular. When you compare PIC and AVR then AVR is Faster and Cheaper than PICs also AVR has a very good c compiler for free (the AVR port of famus GCC used heavily in Linux and windows too).

    See my tutorials on AVR for getting started:)

    PIC series is manufatured by Microchip while Atmel makes the AVR
