Latest Updated:03/23/2009

Question:

Are the H8S/21xx microcontrollers 8 - bit or 16 - bit devices?

Answer:

The H8S/2100 Microcontrollers are one family in the H8S Series of Embedded Microcontrollers. The other H8S families are the H8S/22xx, H8S/23xx and H8S/26xx series. All of these Microcontrollers share the same H8S/2000 CPU Core.  What differentiates theH8S families are the peripherals that are integrated around this common CPU core.  The H8S/2100 series have the same peripherals as the H8/300 Series and as such are ideally suited to these 8 bit applications.
