the ISAC Cube

ISAC (2)
This cube is the basic module of the Elektor Electronics ISAC (Intelligent Sensor/Actuator Controller) project and includes a compact core system using an Analog Devices ADuC812 MicroConverter, which was described in last month’s introductory instalment. The tiny SMD circuit board can be used like a large IC in an application circuit or in the prototype board presented here.The ISAC cube is a flexible and modular microcontroller system for both simple and complex applications. Producing a plug-in circuit board allows easy upgrades to existing applications by simply exchanging the cube for a newer one, if and when Analog Devices bring out new devices in the MicroConverter series with enhanced facilities.As can be seen from a glance at the picture of the circuit board of the ISAC cube, only a very few components are required to construct a minimal ADuC812-based system. The biggest problem is fitting the Micro-Converter device itself, with its many pins; this problem can be solved by obtaining the SMD circuit board with components already fitted.
