Intel i8035 Processor Replacement

The venerable i8035 has been available since the 1970s, predates the somewhat more popular i8051 processor, and though still available through grey-market, is getting harder to find. The i8035 retrofit module will plug directly into an 8035 processor footprint, permitting a skilled programmer to regenerate the application for the PIC processor. The programming header will permit interfacing to a PC via the Microchip ICD2, allowing USB connectivity and live in-system debugging. With minimal expense, the new application can be developed, and any existing installations can continue to use the existing original application hardware.

The unit has the following feature set:

  • PIC16F877A processor, though in production any PIC in a 44-pin TQFP package may be substituted per customer requirement.
  • 20MHz operating frequency, though as above, any crystal (<20MHz) may be substituted in modest production runs.
  • Pull-up resistors to simulate the intel style of output driver (either driven low or converted to input with internal pull-up).
  • Programming header to permit connection to an ICD2 or other in-circuit programmer.
  • Available pre-programmed with your application as required.
  • Intel 8035 processor footprint.
  • 5V operating voltage.
  • 2.1"x0.9" overall dimensions.

For in-system code development, an in-circuit debugger or emulator may be used. The Microchip ICD2 will connect directly to the module, however due to space limitations on the module itself, a custom header has been used. As a result, a custom programming cable is required, also available from J-Tech.

J-Tech Engineering - Product Subpage - cdpd

Where dial-up access to a communication channel is required, there are currently two choices: A modem designed for DNP communications, able to intercept data and initiate a dial-out procedure; or a conventional modem in conjunction with the Autodialer module. The Autodialer permits a remote DNP3 intelligent electronic device to transmit "Unsolicited Messages" or report-by-exception over a dial-up line.

Buttons on the face plate can be used to increase or decrease output voltage, while providing operator feedback in the form of a LED bar showing the output at any given moment. The digital trim-pot is a response to a need by joystick manufacturers to have a lit display on the face of their equipment. The monitor is self-calibrating to the magnet, and will automatically set itself up each time the unit is powered up.

The unit shown at right supports four independent digital outputs, any of which may be configured as PWM drives or as simple digital on/off controls. Inputs are sampled at aproximately 30Hz, and can be factory set to any of 0-5V, 0-10V, or 4-20mA inputs. All switches are high-side, leaving the output device disconnected from power during off cycle times. Regardless, ground is always present on the output stage, making for a safer system.
