AFAIR it was on 2.45GHz. But in the 70's that was not released for
public use in Germany so each unit needed a license. Pretty impressive
when one of those yellow vans with lots of rotating antennas stops at
your house and neighbors become curious what happened.

You've seen the new device from TI ?
Sub GHz and adds USB ?

Yes, those are already on my list. There are a bit above the Dollar pain
threshold right now and some clients frown upon the 8051 architecture
(not me, I actually like it).

Hopefully they realize that one of the reasons the 8051 architecture is still
so popular is because it's dirt cheap!

Sure is. Also, you can find local programmers in even the smallest of
towns which is a huge upside. Last but not least there is often a 2nd
source. If there ain't you can usually find a very similar 8051 device
so that code portability isn't a serious issue.

I like the architecture as well, for very small applications only, of
course. They took the Mark I MCS-48 series and added all the stuff
that was missing. Most of the modern variants dispense with the
horrible pseudo-bidirectional ports and add useful peripherals that
were missing or were very primitive in the earlier versions.

Don't forget the second part of dirt cheap, there is plenty of
expertise out there running around.  Can you say self-fulfilling
prophecy?

Yep... PICs are the same way -- not the world's most inspired architecture,
but dirt cheap and made readily avaialble to hobbyists/college students/etc.
early one; now they're a everywhere too.

Exactamente. While an MSP430 programmer might have to be flown in you
can usually find 8051 guys right there.
