Does anyone still use the 8085? Ian

Why don't you post this in COMP.OS>CPM too since the 8080/8085 was a very important CPU for that OS Norm

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth but what on earth would you do with it? Bob

Wasn't it used in the Mars rovers by NASA? IIRC it was the only micro available that was radiation hard. (is that the correct expression?). Meindert

There are quite a few Radiation hardened MCU about. -- \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ \/\/\/\/\ Chris Hills Staffs England /\/\/\/\/ /\/\/ chris@phaedsys.org www.phaedsys.org \/\/\ \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
I have two Marconi 2019A signal generators that use it. They are rather
old, though.

I've got an old Windows PC that might as well use an 8085, based on the
speed it runs programs!

But honestly, a lot of us old timers still play with these devices.
They're a LOT easier to use than PICs.

And the Rabbit Internet devices use a Z-80 superset...

No, the Rabbit uses an incompatible subset, and doesn't even include all the 8080 instructions. This makes it binary incompatible with any software ever built for 8080, 8085, z80, 64180, z180, etc. A very foolish decision, IMO. -- "If you want to post a followup via groups.google.com, don't use the broken "Reply" link at the bottom of the article.

I partly agree, except I would have thought the 8051 was a). a closer competitor to PICs and b). available around the time of the 8085 and still in volume production by several manufacturers. Ian
