We now enjoy a significant advantage in the remote control arena, with the ability to address the entire spectrum of the market, from ultra low-end, single function devices to high-end, multi-function remote controls. In addition, ZiLOG customers can now benefit from an easy migration path to high volume production from 1K to 16K memory using the same tool set."

generation and reception of complex pulses or signals, six priority interrupts, high and low voltage detection with flag, programmable watch-dog/power-on reset circuits, two independent comparators with programmable interrupt polarity and programmable mask options.
