10MIPS MICRO

Microcontroller boards continue their trend of miniaturisation – the latest being Siemens’ MicroModule 165, which has the company’s 16bit C165 and measures 51 x 36 x 8mm.

Microcontroller boards continue their trend of miniaturisation – the latest being Siemens’ MicroModule 165, which has the company’s 16bit C165 and measures 51 x 36 x 8mm. The device follows hard on the heels of Phytec’s MicroModule 8 – both available from Hitex.

Effectively, both are big chips. But on the 165, with a frequency of 40MHz, you get instruction cycle times of 100nsec. And, with up to 1Mb SRAM and the same FLASH EPROM you can go for complex applications. On board FLASH programming is via RS232 and downloading of application programs is easy via the C165’s bootstrap.
