What is a 68HC11?
Well the 68HC11 is a microcontroller created by Motorola back in the 80s and is now being produced by Freescale Semiconductor. So why am I talking about a 30 year old microcontroller? To be honest its simply because I salvaged one from some old 80s chart recorders and the first thing I spotted in the spec sheet was that you didn't need a purpose built programmer to program them. I like the sound of that so I have designed the 68HC11 into the Ozirock's Projects Prototyping Board, if this proves successful I'll be reporting more here about what it can do.
