    I once designed, programmed and built a simple multi -timer circuit using a PIC so I have some experiance, but it was a few years ago.

    The time has come when only a PIC will solve my problems but what one do I use ?

    Its main task it to read pulses from a magnetic pickup running at 3k RPM and manipulate an output on an ignition circuit. Should I use one with a Shmitt trigger input to keep things stable. The program will not be huge so memory is not a problem and I will only need 1 input and 1 output.

    Any ideas ?

    PIC12F683 might be worth a look.
    Also the PIC10 series is good for low pin count
