Z8S180 Single Board Computer

Products > Microcontrollers


This Single Board Microcomputer is suitable for training and educational purposes and to study the general programming of microprocessors as well as for a first practical approach the interfacing techniques. A rich list of examples of programs written in BASIC and assembler provide a useful support to this goal.

The use of ELC-180 is described by the following steps:

  • Connection of ELC-180 to a terminal or PC via RS232C serial interface, Alternatively you can use a parallel ASCII keyboard with an LCD display connected to I/O ports as per the enclosed diagrams

  • Development of software with support for BASIC resident on the board, with the possibility to write routines in object code Z180 by the utility of the MOS

  • Testing and debugging of developed software with any external hardware required by the application.
