RMB166-FLI   
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 and RMB-166i:

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 requirements.

Software Overview
READS166, 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.
