ZiLOG Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
Posted by Eric on 7 December 2001, 23:07 GMT

ZiLOG, the esteemed company that brought us the Z80 processor, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. TI's TI-8x line of calculators (except the TI-89), of course, uses a processor based on the ZiLOG Z80 (as well as many other ancient computers such as the ol' TRS-80). More information can be found at the Electronics Times.

A Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection thing only means they stop working if they cant pay the bills so they still have time to get back together.

Curious. I wonder why we haven't been hearing of profit warnings and such from this company before declaring bankrupt. I'm sure TI has a "plan B."

I do believe that TI has something in mind for the worst case scenario. If not, then they're a lot more stupid than I thought.

Do remember... They never made a TI-84, 87, or 88... they can always make more.

Do admit, however, that the 89 and 92 are the best calculators on the market. Lots of memory, fast, east to program, and they do a lot more that the squat the 83 does.

I will admit, however, that the prices on the Z80 calculators are much more appealing than the 68000 calculators.
