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.
