Subject: Motorola or Zilog low cost processors?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Someone recently informed me that Motorola and ZIlog both have low cost
processors (< $1.00 US).
Has anyone out there had any experience with these?
What are the tools available?
How has the sourcing been?

Verily. The low end Z8s can be had for as low as $0.69 in quantity. BUT.
Tools are expensive, support is awful, and some devices have no OTP,
emulator, or erasable parts (MASK-ONLY DEVELOPMENT!)
The E04 and E08 are ok, and the emulator is only about $8k. OTPs are about
$2-$3, and are fairly available. No erasables. There is also a $1200 unit
which is supposed to be an emulator and programmer, but it blows the stack
in single-stepping, so it's basically an expensive programmer. The good
emulators come from Signum (maybe others too)
Sourcing was the one thing we didn't have a problem with.
If you want to do that, I've got a pair of emulators that will be up for
Signum Z8 emulator, and the Zilog emulator/programmer.
I used to do development on the E04/E08 and the C21/C61
