    Paul: I see the 82mA figure you quote, but suspect that is the current draw the SX itself requires. Evidence: At 4Mhz the spec is 8mA. My guess is that the system does not need to be limited to 8mA...

    Thanks for the replies. I am really trying to understand the specs sheet and operation of SX rather than solve a specific problem. I don't actually have an application with 20 LEDs in mind.

    Am I...

    Question about max electrical output current

    I have a quick question about the DC characteristics of the SX chip:

    According to the specs, the max current into Vss pin is 130mA, and max current out of Vdd is 130mA. Max·sink current per IO pin...

    Thanks for the replies.

    So on the Code - List file, I have at the last line on the page the numbers: 841· 0315· 000D

    The first number (841) increments with each line of...
  7. How to find out how much program memory is remaining?

    Ok, this is perhaps an idiot question but I am unable to find out how much program·memory is remaining. I see that the SX has 2k of program space, but can't find out how much I have left with my...

    ???

    I am using a 50Mhz clock, and do know how to set the prescaler. If I'm okay with interrupts occuring at the rtcc rollover rate (20.48us with 1:4 prescaler), then I don't need to mess with...

    Hey, that's a good idea. More on that thought, a watch battery should work too. I kind of got interested in the 128bit serial EEPROM I found at Mouser, though; I think I'll play around with...

    Thanks a lot for the input. I was hoping the state of the registers·was somewhat persistant when turned off :) but I'll have to decide on either an EEPROM or perhaps an analog trimmer. I think 16 dip...
