I don't know which one is worse ;-) But still it's better than "4004 inside" >It is based on the 8051. That is not the same as "it is an 8051". 8051 is based on an even worse 8048... I don't like the idea of backward compatibility ;-) I hate 8051 !!! Even those speeded-up ones like Dallas 320 etc. But there are other solutions: 1. Mitsubishi - a lot of 6502 based microcontrollers, also with USB slave controller. But rather hard to get :-( 2. Microchip - USB enabled PICs. 3. Philips - no, I'm not going to mention 8051s ;-) Philips makes some interesting chips - like PDIUSBD12 (full speed USB slave controller) 4. National Semidestructor - USBN9602. Something like PDIUSBD12. Konrad B. Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
