Definition: Zilog, Inc., NASDAQ: ZILG often seen as ZiLOG (the official company denotation in 1998 through Jun 2007), is a manufacturer of 8-bit, 16-bit, 24-bit, and 32-bit microprocessorss, and is most famous for its Intel 8080-compatible Z80 series.
The Z80 was an improved implementation of the Intel 8080 architecture, which was faster, more capable, and much cheaper; alongside the 6502 it was one of the most popular 8-bit processors for general purpose microcomputers and other applications.
It was used in the Nintendo Game Boy, the Sinclair ZX80, ZX81 and ZX Spectrum home microcomputers as well as the MSX architecture and the Tandy TRS-80 series - among many others.
Also, many Texas Instruments graphing calculators used the Z80 as the main processor, and the chip found continued use in some newer game consoles such as the Sega Mega Drive (Genesis in the United States) and Saturn.
The CP/M operating system (and its huge software library featuring hits like Wordstar and dBase) was known to be 'the Z80 disk operating system', and its success is partly due to the popularity of the Z80. After the Z80 Zilog introduced the 16-bit Z8000 and 32-bit Z80000 processors, but these were not particularly successful, and the company refocused on the microcontroller market, producing both basic CPUs and application-specific integrated circuits/standard products (ASICs/ASSPs) built around a CPU core.
As well as producing processors, Zilog has produced several other components.
One of the most famous was the Z8530 serial communications controller as found on Sun SPARCstations and SPARCservers up to the SPARCstation 20. Source: Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zilog)
