"ZiLOG" v. "Zilog"[edit]

Although the proper name of the company is mixed-case, the chip names should maybe stay as "Zilog Z80" etc, since they're much much more commonly seen that way. Stan 18:06, 9 Oct 2003 (UTC)

Actually, the name of this article about the company as such should probably also be written as "Zilog" (i.e., ordinary capitalization, not mixed-case), according to Wikipedia:Manual of Style (trademarks)---as per the case of REALTOR® Realtor. --Wernher 06:26, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
While the name of the company was presented in its logotype as "ZiLOG" during the Crawford-Thorburn years (1998-2007), the name is today represented as "Zilog". CaptainZilog (talk) 00:35, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Major revision needed[edit]

This article needs a mayor revision. It's brutally incomplete.

I wholeheartedly agree, and will mark it as a microprocesser stub. -- Toksyuryel talk | contrib 07:33, 23 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:CA45ENSD.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:CA45ENSD.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:51, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Support for "fair use"[edit]

There's already support for the "fair use" claim, but I added additional clarification. This issue should now be closed. --Johnlogic (talk) 18:21, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Zilog was a microcomputer maker too[edit]

I worked with several of their computers known as MCZ1-20, MCZ1-25 and ZDS1-40 (1978 to 1990). The OS was not CP/M (8080/8085) but RIO. The smallest ones were using 2 or 4 8" floppies (256Ko) and the bigest a 14" hard disk with a removable cartridge (2*5Mo), trough a network named ZNet. The hard disk controler was $HDM. The softwares were at least : ASM (assembly), PLZ (Pascal like), Fortran IV, a very nice Basic (overlayed and able to call Asm routines) and Zbug (Debugger). The hardware was made in Cupertino and, I think, the software was made in UK (?) Philippe Pierre (talk) 15:21, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Zilog programming language "suite"?=[edit]

I understand that Zilog developed a programming language, PLZ (Programming Language Zilog? also mentioned by Philpierre above), which was apparantly a structured language inspired by ALGOL68, Pascal and PL/I. Information about this seems to be very scarce, at least online. There was a high-level variant, PLZ/SYS, and a "structured assembler"? variant, PLZ/ASM. Adding information about this seems appropriate. --Lasse Hillerøe Petersen (talk) 17:58, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Zilog Z8 Encore XP![edit]

Overview[edit]

The Z8 Encore! XP™ are the first in a line of ZiLOG® microcontroller products based upon the 8-bit eZ8 CPU and it is upward compatible with existing Z8 intruction sets. It has a new Flash memory for faster program development and program changes unlike the old Z8 CPU which employ ROM or one time programmable (OTP) memory.

Features[edit]

• 20MHz CPU • 1KB, 2KB, 4KB, 8KB Flash memory • 256B, 512B, 1KB register RAM • 10-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) • 2.7 to 3.6V operating voltage • Up to thirteen 5V-tolerant input pins • 8-pin, 20-pin, and 28-pin packages

References[edit]

ZNEO discontinuation[edit]

I can't see any evidence that ZNEO sales have been discontinued, as the article asserts. Zilog's site represents the ZNEO as a current product, and DigiKey still sells them. --174.30.253.16 (talk) 01:37, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Zilog bought out[edit]

Zilog was bought out by IXYS (which does not have an entry) in early 2010. Also note that links to pages on Zilog's website are also now out of date. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Com2kid (talkcontribs) 20:43, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
