I have a microcontroller chip. But it seems to be very expensive.

How do I choose another less expensive microcontroller chip which has the same features as the initial one
without compromising any of the facilities?

How do I go about? or What should I search?

What should be my approach while selecting an alternative chip?

Go to the manufacturers web site and see what other microcontrollers they have with the features you need.

If one particular feature adds expense, consider whether it is really required or can be emulated in software.

List what features you actually need and shop for those.

Google your IC part number with the request 'cross reference equivalent' and see if you get any hits.
