The GPC® 81F, an ultra powerful control module packaged on a standard EUROPE Single Size pcb (100x160 mm), is designed to operate 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 technology CPUs and peripherals.
Basic frequency is 8 MHz, though a 10 MHz clock is also available.
Modular design renders the unit ideal for the construction of architectures with distributed logic, the resources afforded being advantageous in terms of I/O, and optimum as regards processing and memory.
With 512 Kbytes EPROM, in effect, the GPC®-81F is especially suitable for those applications where there is a need for a large quantity of code memory.
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 and, directly, the on-board Peripherals as serial EEPROM. In addition to that the GPC® 81F allows a direct management of LCD or Fluorescent Displays. The FGDOS affords truly notable debug facilities, and allows to program directly on board a FLASH with the user program.
