The picture shows GMM 936 that has the dimension of DIP28 integrated circuit. The GMM 936 is equipped with Philips P89LPC936 microcontroller.

GMM 936 possible applications

  • Integrated system that can be used directly on the board developed by the user, a macro component.
  • Smart intelligent nodes with local functionalities as PID algorithms for controlling temperatures, motors, valves, etc.
  • Teleacquisition and telecontrol on medium and low distances.
  • Home automation: lights turning ON/OFF, heating and cooling systems control, supervision of electric devices, security and acces control systems.
  • Car automation: lights turning ON/OFF, heating and cooling systems control, supervision of electric devices, anti-teft and acces control systems, functionality checks.
  • Didactics: GMM 936 offers a very low cost to learn 8051 Core, we have many starter kits options. For this purpose it is likewise interesting the GMM TST 3 support card.
  • Whenever there is a short time to market: the user can see a prototype or even a ready product in one week.
  • Decentralized systems as robots, automation of production line machines, big factory automations.
  • Portable applications featured by low consumption and wide range power supply voltage.


  • Standard container with 28 pin male socket, dual in line, 100 mils pitch, 600 mils width.
  • Very small dimension: 20,7 x 38,7 x 12,8 mm.
  • Weight: 6,9 g.
  • 4 layers printed circuit to obtain best noisy resistance and best EMI performance.
  • Single power supply voltage required in the wide range from 3,0 to 20 Vdc, 25mA max. (the current consumption can change according with module connections).
  • Availability of power saving setting as idle mode, power down mode and clock reduction.
  • Philips P89LPC936 microcontroller (8051 code compatibile) without crystal ( internal frequency of 7.3728 MHz ±2.5%) or with external 11,0592 MHz crystal, by ordering option .11MHz.
  • High performances thanks to 2 clock machine cycle (6x).
  • 16 KBytes FLASH for code, 768 Bytes RAM for data, 512 Bytes EEPROM for data.
  • 2 analog Comparators channels with different input and output configurations options.
  • 8 A/D converter channels with 8 bits resolution.
  • 2 D/A converter channels with 8 bits resolution.
  • 15 interrupt sources with 4 priority levels.
  • 2 multifunctions Timers Counters, up to 16 bits.
  • 4 CCU channels up to 16 bits with PWM, compare, capture, etc. functionalities.
  • Up to 23 digital I/O lines available on connector. Some of these lines have multiple functions.
  • Keypad interface that recognizes software presetted combinations, on 8 of the 23 I/O lines, capable to generate interrupt.
  • Hardware serial communication line with programmable physical protocol (Baud Rate up to 115200 Baud, 8 or 9 data bits, 1 or 2 stop bit), RS 232 buffered or at TTL level.
  • Serial line supports automatic address recognition and errors detection that simplify network connection of different units.
  • Transceiver MAX3222E, for RS 232 serial line, with ESD protection up to ±15KV.
  • I2C BUS controller, completely software configurable.
  • SPI interface programmable for syncronous, high speed communications.
  • One Real Time Clock for long and accurate timing, active even in low power modes.
  • Watch Dog section that protect the controlled system in any operating condition.
  • 1 status LED tmanaged by software through one digital I/O line.
  • One 8 ways Dip switch for operating modes selection of the Mini Module.
  • Internal FLASH can be managed through ISP (In System Programming), or when the module is already mounted, by using the serial communication line.
  • No external programmer is needed in fact, as all the grifo® Mini Module, the FLASH of microcontroller is Erased, Programmed, Verified, Protected by using only the serial line of a standard Personal Computer.
  • For FLASH management on P.C. it is used the freeware Flash Magic program available from Esacademy.
  • Wide range of software development tools used to develop the user application program, as: Assembler (MCA51); C compilers (µC/51, SYS51CW, DDS Micro C51); BASIC compilers (BASCOM 8051); PASCAL compilers (SYS51PW); contacts logic (LADDER WORK); etc.
  • Long list of demo programs and use examples supplied under source form, duly remarked, and executable form for the available development tools.
