THE 80386 GENERATING INTEREST IN JAPAN AS WELL AS US

By CBR Staff Writer

Not too surprisingly, the 80386 is generating just as much excitement in Japan as it is in the US, and Intel Japan reports that about 50 companies are working with the part, with the first machines likely to come to market this quarter, primarily targeted at office applications although engineering workstations and factory automation systems are also likely to appear as well: Mitsubishi Electric – which supplies Unisys with Personalikes – demonstrated a 386 machine as long ago as October, but is so far the only company to announce in Japan, although Multitech of Taiwan will begin selling the 80386-based MPF-1100 in Japan this spring, aiming it primarily at the Computer-Aided Design market.
