Microcontrollers have on chip peripherals so reducing power consumption, size, and cost. Numerous devices have been developed by many different manufactures using a variety of architectures, with most still using 8/16 bit word lengths. This use of general purpose microprocessors is less typical in embedded applications because they require more support circuitry than microcontrollers. Generally the software to control the microprocessor is written in a high level computer language such as C/C++.
Using development tools from Keil™, we support designs based on popular Enhanced 8051 microcontrollers such as those made by Atmel.
Zaltron Limited is a licensed user of Microchip Technology MPLAB IDE (Integrated Development Environment). This enables development of applications for their PIC family of microcontrollers, which are available in 8, 16, and 32 bits versions.
