Flash Magic V3.2 and P89V51
« on: July 19, 2006, 03:37:07 am »
Just downloaded FM version 3.20 and seen all the improvements/ fixes for P89V51...  Thanks Andy I'm a very happy chappy now!

Still requires the addition of a NAND gate in the reset connections to the uP when compared to the P89C51 though, but thats kind of specific to our circuits.

This is the 4th time Philips have obsoleted a micro in this product of ours in 5 years - only 1 other part (out of over 300) has become obsolete, and only once, not 4 times! I will certainly think twice about designing in philips micros in the future. Their website still claims the P89C51 to be in full production:

...Thanks guys.... if you cant even update your own website with critical information what hope does the rest of the world have with using your products?!!

Anyway, thanks Andy... if only Philips were as effective and efficient as you!
