Dallas Semiconductor, a subsidiary of Maxim Integrated Products Inc., announced the availability of the Rowley Associates' CrossWorks embedded development tools for the Dallas Semi's MAXQ 16-bit RISC family of microcontrollers (MCUs). CrossWorks is a complete software development solution for initial design through final production. This product is optimized for use with the MAXQ MCU's single-cycle architecture, which achieves a 3.7 normalized MIPS/mA with 20 MIPS performance.

The MAXQ2000 low-power MCU includes 64 Bytes flash memory, 2KB SRAM, a 16-bit single-cycle hardware multiplier with 48-bit accumulate, a watchdog timer, two serial ports, an SPI master/slave port, three timers, external interrupts, and a 128-segment LCD controller.

The CrossWorks software includes an ANSI- and ISO-compliant c compiler, macro assembler, linker/locator, libraries, core simulator, flash downloader, JTAG debugger, and an integrated development environment named CrossStudio. The Rowley development environment integrates seamlessly with the MAXQ2000 evaluation (EV) kit (MAXQ2000-KIT), and will work with the imminent MAXQ3120 MCU EV kit and any future MCU EV kits.

Used in conjunction with CrossWorks, the MAXQ2000 EV kit creates the ideal platform to evaluate the capabilities of the MAXQ2000. Included in the MAXQ2000 kit is a complete set of software, hardware, sample code, and documentation to start designing with the MAXQ2000. The EV kit operates from a fixed or adjustable power supply, a DB-9 serial connector, an LCD display, interrupt switches, eight LEDs, and a JTAG programming interface for debug and application loading.
