Innovasic Semi : 16-bit embedded processors are drop-in replacements for the Intel 186-188 EB

Innovasic Semiconductor has announced samples of the IA186EB and IA188EB.

The IA186EB and IA188EB are form, fit, and function replacements for the original Intel® 80C186EB, 80C188EB, 80L186EB, and 80L188EB 16-bit high-integration embedded processors. Additionally, they have been upgraded to operate at 5.0V or 3.3V. The 5.0V version operates up to 67 MHz and the 3.3V version up to 55 MHz.

The Innovasic replacements have the same set of peripherals including the standard numeric interface, interrupt control unit, chip-select unit, DRAM refresh control unit, power management unit, three 16-bit timer/counters, and two integrated serial ports supporting both synchronous and asynchronous communications.

The IA186EB and IA188EB are available in 84-Pin PLCC, 80-Pin PQFP and 80-Pin TQFP RoHS compliant packages.

Samples are available immediately and production units will begin shipping Q2 of 2008.
