GPC® 80F

General Purpose Controller, Zilog 84C00

The GPC® 80F is an high-powered control module packaged on a Standard EUROPE Single size pcb (100x160 mm), which operates on the similarly powerful ABACO® 16-bit Industrial BUS, thereby exploiting a generous range of industrial peripherals.

The board is based on the Z80 family of CMOS CPUs and peripherals. Basic CPU frequency is 8 MHz, though a 10 MHz clock is also available.

With its modular design, the unit is ideal for the construction of architectures with distributed logic, affording good resources in terms of I/O and optimum processing resources.

The high power specification of the module ensures its capacity, in combination with the appropriate peripheral boards, to solve problems connected with the running of machines or automatic systems of medium to high complexity.

The module is in any event capable of monitoring and controlling systems of medium complexity using its own resources.

With powerful software packages available, the user can rapidly and conveniently develop all such programs as may be required for a given application, and using high level programming languages. Programming and exploiting the resources of this module is extremely easy thanks to the help of the stout GDOS Romated Operative System. This latter supports high level languages such as BASIC, PASCAL, C Compilers and so on.; it makes available the memory resources as they should be ROM/RAM-Disk allowing an immediate use of this devices at high level. This module linked to the MCI-64 and FGDOS manages PCMCIA cards of RAM cards. In addition to that the GPC® 80F allows a direct management of LCD or Fluorescent Displays and Matrix Keyboard. For an immediate use of this command, KDL-224 boards are available, or if you need a finished object, there is the Operator Panel QTP 24P. This Operator Panel, offered in the open frame version, bears the same aesthetic as QTP 24, but, as the local intelligence is not furnished, it is driven directly by GPC® 80F, allowing a notable cost reduction. The FGDOS affords truly notable debug facilities, and allows to program directly on board a FLASH with the user program.
