Special Environment Product Overview
Intel's controllers have smooth upgrade paths and extensive on-chip integration.
Intel continues to produce leading edge controllers and offers these products
over the rugged temperature grades required of today's demanding industries.
Intel's 8-bit MCS® 51 microcontroller family consists of CHMOS versions
of the original 8-bit microcontrollers. The MCS 51 microcontroller architecture
is optimized for control-oriented applications. A variety of fast addressing
modes for accessing the internal RAM facilitates byte processing and
numerical operations on small data structures. The instruction set provides a
convenient menu of 8-bit arithmetic instructions, including multiply and divide
instructions. Extensive on-chip support is provided for 1-bit variables as a
separate data type, allowing direct bit manipulation and testing in control and
logic systems that require Boolean processing.
Intel offers a wide variety of MCS 51 controllers with different levels of
on-chip peripherals and memory. The MCS 51 microcontroller family includes
versions with on-chip EPROM, One-Time Programmable (OTP) and ROM memory, as
well as CPU-only microcontrollers. Intel's proven CHMOS technology provides
lower power, higher integration and higher performance in this line of controllers.
