Is 8-bit Dead?

Engineers have been heralding the death of 8-bit microcontrollers for years. First 16-bit was supposed set to be it’s executioner then, 32 bit then surely 64 bit would have landed the coup-de-grace of 8 bit. But somehow it has stuck around. For small devices like digital counters, thermometers, and other sensors 8 bit chips like…
