ZiLOG Inc. extended its Z8 Encore! microcontroller (MCU) family with the addition of the Z8F0823 series of 8KB flash devices. Fully compatible with other Z8 Encore! and Z8 Encore! XP MCUs, these new devices promise to provide customers with a seamless migration path between product lines.

According to the company, this ease of migration translates to greater choice and total flexibility for engineers when considering application design. They have the option to choose higher or lower specification MCUs based on their particular project requirements, and to move between families as their application develops and the demands changes.

"We believe that the Z8 Encore! family of flash MCUs is superior to what is currently being offered in the marketplace by our competitors," said Ramesh Ramchandani, EVP of ZiLOG's sales and marketing. "Its flexibility, high performance, scalability and ease of migration, along with a robust feature set, provides all of the components necessary for design engineers to tackle today's most demanding applications at a highly competitive price level."

Target applications for the new MCUs include power supply, sensor interfacing, user input in STBs, battery charging, and small and large home appliances.

The Z8 Encore! Z8F0823 devices will be sold in 20-pin and 28-pin packages with the optional 10bit ADC. It will be priced at $1.14 for a 28-pin SOIC with an A/D Converter and $1.06 for a 20-pin SOIC without an ADC, each in 1,000-unit quantities.

A full-featured development kit supporting the new Z8F0823 series is available, including a full ANSI C Compiler, at $39.95.
