'[PIC]: Asian copies of PICs - are they OK?'
today I stumbled on an ad in the "Asiansources - electronic components"
journal. A company called G-Alantic Enterprise offers Microcontrollers,
and they give PIC 16C54, 55, 56, 57 and 16C711 as compatible products,
stating that these controllers are 100% compatible with PICs. Their
Website is at http://www.g-alantic.com.tw.
Anyone ever tested these?
Do they work as good and reliable as PICs?
Are they priced competitively?

>Hmmm... What kinds of prices/qtys are they quoting you?
More important, do they use normal PIC development tools ?
(thet ad has been there for minimum 3 years afaik).

I've used them. A few years ago now.
They're not really 100% compatible (depending on your definition).
They are pin compatible and have extra instructions over the
equivalent PIC part. Their programmer will read a PIC hex file and
translate directly to their binary format so you can develop for a PIC
and directly program their parts. Just not with a Microchip
If you go to the native assembler, you can squeeze a bit more in.
Power consumption is good and the one part does down to 2.5V
without needing an LP part which was why I looked at them at the
Pricing was very good. The main disadvantages are those common
to many parts out of Asia like language/culture issues, MOQ's,
leadtimes and the assumption that you'll be going to mask next
