AMD announces new mobile Imageon processors - HEXUS.Lifestyle

AMD's new lineup of mobile solutions will consist of the Imageon D160 mobile TV receiver, Imageon M210 Audio Processor, Imageon A250 Application Processor, Z460 3D Graphics Core and Z180 Vector Graphics Core. The chips, expected to make their ...

The Zilog Z180 eight-bit processor is a successor of the Z80 CPU. It is compatible with the large base of software written for the Z80. The Z180 family adds higher performance and integrated peripheral functions like clock generator, 16-bit counters/timers, interrupt controller, wait-state generators, serial ports and a DMA controller. It uses separate read and write strobes, sharing similar timings with the Z80 and Intel processors. The on-chip memory management unit has the capability of addressing up to 1 MB of memory. It is possible to configure the Z180 to operate as the Hitachi HD64180.
