New Products Atmel San Jose, CA (408) 441-0311 AP c S The KX8 and KX2 are mem bers of the 68HC08 family of 8-bit microcon- trollers. They are in-circuit and in- applicatio n programmable. They fea- ture an internal clock generator that can be programmed in the application to a specific target frequency. These two chips offer analog capabili ty in the form of a four-channel, 8-bit analog-to- digital converter. Additional features include 192 bytes of RAM; and a two- channel, 16-bit timer interface mod- ule (TIM) . The flash memory on the KX8 and KX2 is capable of write/ erase cycling to 10,000 cycles and p.-ogram- ming at up to 2ms for a 64-byte block. The ~'{8 costs $2.70. The KX2 costs $1.95. The KX8 and KX2 chips are available now. Motorola Austin. TX (512) 895-9705 OEMs e-b The Bitsy is a single-board computer with a 3-by-4 in. footprint.
