News CAST Releases 80186-Compatible Processor Core

Fast version of popular 16-bit processor aimed at embedded controller and replacement part markets

(DATE 2002) Paris, France, March 05 2002

C80186tx has been discontinued. Please contact Sales to learn more.

Semiconductor intellectual property (IP) provider CAST, Inc. today announced the addition of the C80186TX Microprocessor core to its line of general purpose IP (gpIP) for electronic design. Fully software-compatible with the popular Intel 80C186 but up to six times faster, the new core is an excellent choice for many embedded controller applications, and it provides a cost-effective alternative for replacing older parts that are no longer manufactured.

“The ‘186 is one of the most popular 16-bit processors in the entire world,” said Bill Finch, vice president of sales for CAST. “This fast-running version raises the high end of our gpIP product line, and gives designers a great processor core with the low price, easy licensing, and tremendous support CAST is known for.”

The new C80186TX core is 100% software compatible with the x86 standard and is exchangeable with the similar parts from manufacturers such as Intel and AMD. It uses single-clock memory access and an architecture that optimizes execution time to perform operations up to six times faster than a traditional ‘186 running at the same clock frequency. CAST believes it to be one of the very fastest 80186 designs available.

The core has a broad set of integrated peripherals, which helps reduce system development time and cost. These include four DMA channels, multiple timers, a programmable interrupt controller, a memory refresh unit, programmable DRAM controller, variable-rate asynchronous serial ports, flexible chip select unit, and a peripherals control block with advanced power management.

The 100% software compatibility of the C80186TX core means that developers can confidently use it with the very broad set of compilers, debugging aids, and general technical knowledge that has grown around this popular processor. Developed by CAST partner and microprocessor experts Evatronix S.A., the new core is available immediately in HDL form for ASIC synthesis or optimized for selected FPGAs. Pricing varies by region; customers should contact their local distributor or CAST for details.

About CAST, Inc.

CAST provides a broad line of general-purpose IP cores, including 8- and 16-bit processors, peripherals, buses, network interfaces, communications devices, multimedia operations, and encryption functions.

Privately-owned, the company’s IP revenue grew 50% in 2001 due to its popular product line and lean operations model. Operating since 1993 with a focus on making IP practical and affordable for mainstream designers, the company has established a reputation for high-quality products, flexible licensing, and responsive technical support. The company is located near New York City, and works with an international network of IP developers and distributors.
