Who would PIC a 6 pin processor?

Started by Chad Russel May 28, 2004
'Electronic Design' magazine says the 6 pin SOT-23 PIC10F series is
out. :-) $.49 range.

At that price and size, gets me to thinking about artificial neurons
again, or a sophisticated game of life, or a LED flasher.

The game of life sounds interesting! What a neat way to build the
machine. I think each cell has 8 neighbors. A 6 pin device might
me a little small. A 256 byte EPROM (if it was registered) would
also be a neat way to do it.

Gotta deal with the initial state...

Ya, you are right about 6 pins, trying to think of some way to poll
your neighbors intead. With the way they are packing people into
condos these days, you could have 26 neighbors.

With memory, you could have a history to look back on also. I wonder
if good and bad neighborhoods would develop? Have to add railroad
tracks, so you could have a good side and a bad side of town. :p

What about fractal image processing?? I don't think there is a AtoD
available. :(

=====
My software has no bugs. Only undocumented features.

well it does have a comparator and presumably an onchip reference
similar to the one on the 12f629. maybe that can satisfy your need
for an a/d if speed and linearity aren't a big deal.

i wish they had included some e2 on chip.
