Intel Corp yesterday introduced its anticipated line of 32-bit microcontrollers, including the new 80960 architecture and its first three derivatives, a customised version of the 80386, and its first non-volatile flash memories. Intel says that the new 80960 uses RISC techniques to create parts a high performance architecture that can be easily modified into market-specific processors, and will be the basis of Intel’s 32-bit embedded processors well into the next decade. The first three processors are the 80960KA, 80960KB and military 80960MC, rated at 7 MIPS to 10 MIPS and costing $174 to $390 for 100-up, $2,400 for the MilSpec one. The 80376 is a derivative of the 80386 customised for embedded control applications, and is designed to provide a growth path from the 80186. The 80376 comes with a companion highly integrated 82370 peripheral chip and is rated at 2.5 MIPS to 3 MIPS. The parts are $99 and $57 for 100-up. The new ETOX EPROM tunnel oxide flash memories are designed to fill the performance gap between EPROMS and E2PROMs, coming in 256K and 64K versions at $19.90 and $8 for 10,000-up. Flash memories are tipped as a possible successor to disk drives in portable applications (CI No 896).
