SCOTTY08 - V2.00

Single Board Computer with MC68EC000, 8/16MHz

Not for new designs!

The Scot

LogoSCOTTY08 is a low-priced, but yet good-performance single board computer. The processor MC68EC000, with 8MHz clock (16MHz optional) has a linear address space of one megabyte. 512KB RAM and 512KB EPROM are directly addressable.

The 16/32Bit architecture of the MC68000 family is well suited to be programmed in high-level languages. ECO-C or WinECO-C - both specially tuned for embedded control applications - are appropriate software development tools for SCOTTY08. A hardware specific library for SCOTTY08 enables a fast start for programmers.

SCOTTY08 is available since 1992 and is produced since then in almost unchanged form. The original SCOTTY had a MC68008 processor, but Motorola stopped its production. So we made a complete redesign, compatible to the original SCOTTY. Power consumption is even clearly lower in version 2.00. Further improvements: Four layer board, CMOS CPU, HALT and power LED.
