OT, but Atmel produces:
AVR 8 bit microcontrollers, AVR custom architecture
AVR32 32 bit microcontrollers, AVR32 custom architecture
ARM based products (the SAM* series), ARM7, ARM9, Cortex-M/Cortex-A

Microchip additionally maintains custom 8,16 and 32 bit PIC

Joakim's Android work is much appreciated, but for these types of
bare-metal controllers you'll have to look at Mike's work:

This is for 32bit ARM only. I wrote a proof-of concept hello-world for
AVR 8bit controllers (blink an LED) some time ago. On the compiler
side, not much is missing and betterC-related changes fix most compiler
problems. What you really need though is register definitions and
nobody wrote those for AVR 8 bit controllers yet.
