PIGNORIS CAPIO, ROM. civil law. The name given to one of the legis actiones of the Roman law. It consisted chiefly in the taking. of a pledge, and was in fact a mode of execution. It was confined to special cases determined by positive law or by custom, such as taxes, duties, rents, &c., and is comparable in some respects to distresses at common law. The proceeding took place in the presence of a praetor.

Tokyo, Sept 9, 2008 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu Microelectronics Limited announced today the addition of three series featuring low pin count (LPC), with 20 pins or less, to its F2MC-8FX family(1) of high-performance 8-bit microcontrollers with embedded flash memory.
The Signal Analysis PICtail Daughter Board and accompanying PC software, when plugged into the PICkit 1 Flash Starter Kit, enables engineers to analyze analog signals as processed by Microchip's low pin-count PIC 8- bit microcontrollers. This new daughter board, with its Graphical User Interface (GUI), provides designers with a tool box for learning and evaluating the capabilities of low pin-count PIC microcontrollers without expensive test equipment or tools.
"Microchip continues to gain worldwide marketshare in the 8-bit microcontroller market because the company's PICmicro architecture, development tools, and field sales and application support provide the maximum benefits for customers to reach their design goals."
