I dont know how sharp you guys' electronics is, but
Im working on a digital thermometer...
Right now its brain is going to be a Motorola 68705P3,
The only beef i have with it is that its timer/ counter is only 8 bits wide.
Does anyone know of a microcontroller that has a 16bit counter?
The problem is that it cant need alot of support chips....
so a 8051,8052 or are out of the question...
And I already looked into using a 8742... it wasnt beefy enough.
Oh yeah, as you might have noticed from the 7's, itd help if the chip had programmable eprom onboard.

What about TI DSP.
BTW, what do you mean by "it can't have a lot of support chips?"
You mean the address gate and some stuff needed by the 8051 to generate both data and address BUSes ?
I remember years ago having used a BASIC programmed microcontroller, something lik 16PIC something ...
