   I just took a look at that press release.  Guess the information
   I have isn't secret anymore, so...

   TWO chips in the 12000 series have been announced... The other
   one has 1024 words of code space, 41 registers.

   Watchdog included.

   PortB only.  That is, the register is at the same address as the
   PORTB register on the 16C5x.  Whether Microchip's documentation
   will refer to that port as "A" or "B", though, is anyone's guess.

   In serious quantities, the smaller chip (the 12C508) will be WAY
   under $1.  I suppose that ANYONE could infer this from the fact
   that Microchip's press release says, "pricing in 50,000-unit
   quantities is less than $0.99 each for both the PIC12C508 and the
   PIC12C509".

   I'm surprised that Microchip has publicized the parts so
   early... Perhaps the fact that they just started distributing
   Picstart Plus programmers with silkscreened "8-pin devices go
   here" markings had something to do with it.

I assume though that this will be for masked devices. Will there be OTP
devices too, and any idea what price?

Clyde:

When I wrote, "I guess the information I have isn't secret anymore,"
I didn't mean that ALL the information was no longer secret.  For
pricing information beyond what can be inferred from the press
release, you'll have to talk to your Microchip sales rep.

Sorry...

The parts announced are OTP. As of now, there are no masked parts
announced. The pricing you see is for OTPs.
