Abstract

The Motorola Modular Family (MMF) is currently composed of two groups of products; the MC68HCl6 family, based on the CPU16 core, and the MC68HC300 family, based on the CPU32 core. Each product in the MMF contains a CPU module, a system integration module, and one or more of the other modules available in this family, A new Module, the "GRIM" is targeted for a broad range of modular MCU applications. It has a minimum number of pins required for basic opera- tion and test. It also has a set of optional pins to support incremental features, without the need to re-design the GRIM module.
