Programmed with a great Monitor Eprom (Paulmon2 ).
Programming is done in C - get the free C-Compiler here (many thanks to Sandeep for it !)
The 80C353 Hardware was derived from a circuit out of the book "Einplatinencomputer" from "Elektor Verlag".

At the moment i am woking on a radio-datalink between the PC and the 80c535 MC. Let's see...

Plans for the future:

  • Ultrasonic ranging system
  • Elektronic Compass
  • WAV Soundsystem
  • RAM Extention with swiched Banks 128KByte
  • 4 Bit LCD Display interface (done already)
  • Bumper Sensors
