Zilog announced its Z8F083A series flash microcontroller (MCU) for fan control and universal motor control applications, offering an optimized feature set and scalability. The series offers a single-pin on-chip debugger (OCD) port for in-system Flash programming and debugging. The family supports up to 8 Kbytes of Flash memory, 256 bytes of register RAM, and it is pin-for-pin compatible with other members of the Z8 Encore! XP family, allowing a migration path from 1 Kbytes up to 12 Kbytes. The series also includes a targeted peripheral set featuring an up to eight channel, fast 2.8 ums successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converter (ADC), an on-chip 20 MHz internal precision oscillator and 100 bytes of non-volatile data storage (NVDS) for storing system parameters or user data.
