    • Development Kit for C8051F960 Ultra Low Power MCU


    Customers designing with the C8051F96x ultra low power microcontroller should start with the C8051F960-A-DK MCU development kit. This development kit includes all the boards and accessories needed to start MCU code development.

    The C8051F96x MCU card enables application development on the C8051F960 MCU. The card connects to the MCU Card expansion slot on the UDP motherboard and provides complete access to the MCU resources.

    Each expansion board has a unique ID that can be read out of an EEPROM or MCU on the board, which enables software tools to recognize the connected hardware and automatically select the appropriate firmware image. The target MCU card can also be detached from the UDP and used alone as a development or demonstration tool.

    The C8051F960 MCU Card with Multiplexed LCD includes a 4-mux, 128-segment alphanumeric LCD. The LCD has eight 14-segment characters and includes decimal points and apostrophes. The large display is easy to read from a distance.
