Analog Devices ADuC702x MicroConvertor - CH Ting
The ADuC702x is the latest microcontroller from Analog Devices. It has an ARM7 core, with a ton of peripherals, including 8 ADC, 4 DAC, 32 KBytes of flash memory, 8 KB of RAM, UART, SPI, GPIO, PWM, etc. Ting is in the process of porting his ARM eForth to it, and he hopes to show the results at the meeting.
