Can someone please assist in choosing the right processor.
 
Got a small project to interface to a Real Time Clock and need a few I/O lines. Possibly need RF option to be able to transmit some updated RTC data or possibly control with Infra Red transmission.
 
Looking for the most cost effective device so does not need lots of fancy stuff. Been searching thru the web but get a little confused when I see "Not recommended for new development" - not exactly sure what that means.
 
Is the 68HC908RF2 still produced - if not what is a reasonable (cheap) replacement?
 
Many thanks
