For a limited time, just $9.95 is all you need to buy a development kit for Zilog Inc.'s Z8 Encore! XP 8-pin microcontroller. The kit usually retails for $49.95. The "Spring into Action" promotional offer is good until June 30 and includes the microcontroller, development board, USB cable, integrated development environment, C compiler, sample code, document browser, and full documentation. (Act soon: Quantities are limited and going fast.)

Launched in February, the 8-pin version of the Z8 Encore! microcontroller lends itself to a diverse range of applications including motor controls, security systems, battery chargers, power supplies, electronic cooling, small appliances, personal electronics, and home automation and monitoring.

Like other members of the Z8 Encore! XP family, this latest version shares Zilog's eZ8 core, making it code compatible with the others and simplifying product migration. On-chip features include a full-range temperature sensor, single-pin debugger, and transimpedance amplifier. For more details on the promotion and to order the development kit go to
