The RMB166-FLI industrial board
features the Infineon SAB 80C166 16-bit high-performance microcontroller in
the metric plastic quad-flat pack package. The microcontroller is run
with a 16-bit non-multiplexed data bus and a 16-bit non-multiplexed address
bus. The board may be configured in several different ways depending on the
reset and ROM options chosen. The default configuration is the 64K RAM and no
ROM mode. In this mode, the monitor or user program is downloaded to RAM using
the SAB 80C166bootstrap feature. A set of option headers, decoded by a GAL
device make the RMB166-FLI a flexible hardware platform.
The RMB166-FLI is compatible with all of our
16-bit boards The board size, the location, and function of all headers are
kept the same. The RMB166-FLI has the following improvements over the RMB-166
1. Industrial Strength Shielding. The
printed circuit board is a six-layered board with separate VCC and Ground
planes for improved shielding designed to operate in noisy industrial
applications. The RMB166-FLI meets and exceeds the European Community
Electromagnetic and Electrostatic Compliance requirements.
2. FLASH Memory Capability.
A. 32K on-chip FLASH Memory
B. Sockets U5 and U6 accept 29F010 FLASH chips from AMD.
C. The 29F010 chips may be programmed in circuit using the R166FLI software
which is supplied with the board.
3. Higher Memory Map Resolution. The PALCE22V10-type device has
access to A13 to A17 in determining the memory map. The memory map has a
resolution of 8 Kilobytes. The printed circuit board is a six-layered board
with separate VCC and Ground planes for improved shielding designed to
operate in noisy industrial applications. The RMB166-FLI meets and exceeds
the European Community Electromagnetic and Electrostatic Compliance

version 3.10, is Rigel Corporationís Integrated Development Environment for
the Infineon / ST Microelectronics 16-bit processors. READS166 includes an
editor, a host-to-board communications system, an assembler, and a C compiler.
READS166 is completely rewritten in native 32-bit code to run on Windows 95 /
98 / NT. READS166 includes a sophisticated project management system to
simplify code reusability and version control. The C compiler is rewritten to
support a full debugger. The debugger allows you to step through your code
with breakpoints and variable watches as the compiled code runs on the target
board, similar to the operation of an in-circuit emulator.
