Don't know if you've seen our page recently, but we've upgraded our site with new descriptions and more photos.
We have also lowered some of our prices.
The SBC-2 now goes for $49 ($10 off) and the SBC-8K has had an 8K Serial EEPROM added at no extra charge (was $10).

Also, it's worth trying to find a copy of "M68HC11 HCMOS* Single-Chip Microcomputer Programmer's Reference Manual" (M68HC11PM/AD, Otherwise known as the "Green Book". I haven't seen a new one of these in years but it is a valuable resource for programmers. In addition to an instruction-by-instruction listing it has very useful discussions of addressing modes, and has numereous handy summary tables of instructions, op codes, etc.

Ahhh, excellent info, I was just getting a new (Non EVM) system up
and going last weekend using the buffalo monitor.

My S19 file was ORG'ed to start the code at 4000h, but the byte was
always being cleared!!!.  I had no idea what was going on.

Thanks again for this valuable tip.

Here's some info on the MSCC11: A Single Chip MC68HC11 Microcontroller.
The MSCC11 features an MC68HC11 processor mounted in a 52-pin PLCC with headers
connected to the processor ports. The MSCC11 realizes a single chip
microcontroller and provides
o Eight 3-wire (5 volts, ground, signal) powered analog or  digital input header
connected to Port_E,
o Eight 3-wire powered digital output header connected to  Port_B,
o Eight 3-wire powered bidirectional digital signal header  connected to Port_C,
o Jumpers to separate unregulated and regulated power and  ground rails on the
o The power rail can drive up to 16 servos attached to  Port_C and Port_B
o The regulated voltage rail always drives the  microcontroller and the eight
powered digital/analog  inputs attached to Port_E.
o Eight 3-wire powered analog sensor connectors may be  attached directly to
o A 5-pin male header permits the MSCCB11 to serially  communicate with other
MSCCB11s or personal using the  Mekatronix Bidirectional Serial Communications
Board  (MBSCB) described below.
This is extremely high-quality!

I wrote IDE11 (and still developing V2.3). BTW: Feel free to get a fully
functional eval copy of IDE11 at ! (V2.3 will
be available in the beginning of June). Any comments are welcome!

The 7812 Bd solution was already explained here by a number of people (good
work folks ;-) !), so I don't have something to add. I also use 7680 Bd
instead of 7812. This never has been a problem (in DOS).

Subject: EVBoard

We use our own EVB in our school. It can be purchased directly. However, as we
finished the Windows Version of our Software, we consider giving away the dos
version for free.

It is a full functional embedded environment, that looks like Turbo Pascal:
      * Text Editor
      * Download Function
      * Terminal Shell
      * Pascal Compiler

- Our EVB comes with a free ware assembler (asmhc11) but works w/ any Assembler
that may be called by a Batch file.
- The EVB comes w/ 32kB Memory and 16kB Rom that provides many functions such as
RS232* Support, c-like write function and a Shell where new commands may be added.

You can have a look at

Unfortunately, at this point, the documentation is German only.

If enough people are interested in our product, I would translate the Doc for the
American Market.

Subject: HC11 boards

Here's another board you probably haven't heard of yet... We have just
released our new 32K HC11 ModCon board! It is low cost, and completely
expandable. The stackable connectors provide access to all HC11 pins, and
are pin compatible with the EVBU boards (using a split cable). We will also
be producing a proto-board that will mate with the ModCon.

The ModCon has many built in features to make it as versatile as possible;
It supports both the DS1233 or MC34064 reset chips. The four servo
connectors can be configured for both Airtronics and Futaba standards. Four
dip switches support all of the HC11's modes and Buffalo functions. There is
a cut-trace option for battery support for the RAM. The 14 pin SPI connector
has additional lines to support many types of peripherals.

We sell a the ModCon in a 'minimal' configuration (without RAM or stacking
connectors) for $87.00. The other components can be added later. Or the
complete ModCon Kit can be had for $137.00. Assembly is $20 extra.

Our web site has a number of photos, and details, although we will continue
to add information. Next up, I'm going to have all the connector pinouts up.
If the site leaves any unanswered questions, please let me know!

Subject: Re: MC68HC11 instruction set

>I'm looking for the complete instruction set of the Motorola 68HC11
>Maybe someone at this group can mail me this instruction set.

Motorola provides a web site dedicated to providing design information for the HC11 processors. The address is:

Browse around a bit (in the literature section) and you'll find a place where you can download PDF files of all the information you need. Look for two items in particular: The "M68HC11 Reference Manual", part # M68HC11RM/AD. This manual, available in PDF form, contains a complete, detailed description of the instruction set. You will often hear people on this list refer to this book as "The Pink Book" since the printed hardcopy version of this manual has a marbled pink cover. You should also look for the Technical Data manual for the particular part you are interested in working with. There are several versions of the Tech Data manual, one for each major HC11 series part. For example, the book that covers the MC68HC11E9 and all E-series parts is entitled "M68HC11 E Series Technical Data", part # MC68HC11E/D. The Tech Data books cover the usage of the on-chip subsystems of specific HC11 parts in greater detail than the treatment provided in the "Pink Book".

If you are patient, you can also use the web-based tools at the aforementioned site to order literature to be mailed to you directly. The form provided for this purpose expects Motorola document numbers, which I have included above. These doc numbers are also provided on the page that lists PDF files available for download. One drawback of this service is that Motorola typically will not mail hardcopy documentation outside North America.

Good luck in your work with the HC11. If you have difficulties, don't hesitate to post your questions here - there are a lot of good people on this list who will most likely be willing to help you "get your feet wet".
