Innovati’s EV8TM module is the simplified version of BASIC Commander® series. The EV8™ module is developed to support low-cost and low to middle volume micro-controllers applications. EV8™ module has eight general-purpose digital I/Os suitable for less I/O required applications. The EV8™ module is multiple-time programmable, however it is not equipped with the USB interface to download the programs. For that, an EV-Writer™ is required.
The EV8™ module with the EV-Writer™ is basically equivalent to the BASIC Commander® module. However, due to the size consideration, the cmdBUS™ connector is not provided, the EV8™ cannot collaborate with Innovati’s Smart Peripheral Modules. To execute the DEBUG commands for human-machine interface, the USB interface is required. The EV8™ module cannot execute the DEBUG commands by itself, unless it is connected to the EV-Writer™.
Note that this manual mainly describes the specification of the EV8™ and EV-Writer™. For the details of the BASIC Commander® system and usage of the innoBASIC™ language, please refer to “BASIC Commander & innoBASIC Workshop User’s Manual.”
