Ordering Info and Specifications

Device numbering scheme for the EM1206 is as follows:

An illustration of the EM1206 numbering scheme.

512KB devices are no longer available.

If the flash memory size is omitted, the 1,024KB option is implied.

To order the EM1206 in combination with the RJ203 module, use the "RJ203+EM1206" ordering code. This code means that the RJ203 and the EM1206 will come pre-assembled together.
