Rochester Electronics Re-introduces Intel’s 8XC196 Family

NEWBURYPORT, Mass. — Rochester Electronics is a fully-authorized continuing source for the Intel 8XC196 Family of microcontrollers. Introduced in 1982 as the Intel MCS-96 Family, these MCUs are most commonly used in motor control, modem, printer and pattern recognition applications within embedded systems.

In 2007, Intel discontinued this family of microcontrollers, at which point Rochester Electronics acquired the intellectual property of these devices to continue helping Intel’s customer base for this specific family. Through its Extension-of-Life® programs, Rochester Electronics currently offers this family in a variety of packages, temperature ranges and speeds, including military versions for the 80C196KB, 87C196KC and KD.

Tested to OSM standards, all devices manufactured by Rochester Electronics are replications of the original semiconductor devices, featuring the exact form, fit and function.
