1 80x86

2 80186 Intel is a microprocessor and microcontroller introduced in 1982. It was based on the Intel 8086, & like it, had a 16-bit external data bus multiplexed with a 20-bit address bus.

3 68 pins 29,000 transistors ~ as an embedded version of 8086. Added 7 new instructions: push all, pop all, etc. 1982 ~ Sept


5 80286 / iAPX 286 February 1, 1982 Bus Width: 16 bits data, 24 bits address. Included memory protection hardware to support multitasking operating systems with per-process address space Number of Transistors 134,000 Addressable memory 16 MB 3~6X the performance of the 8086

6 4 independent units: address unit, bus unit, instruction unit and
execution unit, which formed a pipeline significantly increasing the performance. In computing, a pipeline is a set of data processing elements connected in series, so that the output of one element is the input of the next one. The elements of a pipeline are often executed in parallel or in time-sliced fashion; in that case, some amount of buffer storage is often inserted between elements.


8 386DX Introduced October 17, 1985 Bus Width 32 bits data, 32 bits address Number of Transistors 275,000 Addressable memory 4 GB Virtual Memory – 64 TB First x86 chip to handle 32-bit data sets Used in desktop computing


10 …386SX June 16, 1988 a low cost version of the with a 16-bit data bus. The original was subsequently renamed i386DX to avoid confusion. However, Intel subsequently used the 'DX' suffix to refer to the floating-point capability of the i486DX.

11 …386EX Introduced August 1994 Variant of 80386SX intended for embedded systems Static core, i.e., may run as slowly (and thus, power efficiently) as desired, down to full halt Static core is a CPU chip that can be stopped simply by stopping the system clock oscillator that is driving it, and it will hold its state indefinitely and resume processing at the point it was stopped when the clock signal is restarted, as long as it is kept powered. It allows the use of less power, and is suitable for standby mode.

12 Used aboard several orbiting satellites and microsatellites
On-chip peripherals: Clock and power management Timers/counters Watchdog timer Serial I/O units (sync and async) and parallel I/O DMA RAM refresh Used aboard several orbiting satellites and microsatellites Used in NASA's FlightLinux project

13 Watchdog – regulator - supervisory body
A watchdog timer (or computer operating properly (COP) timer) is a computer hardware or software timer  that triggers a system reset or other corrective action, if the main program [due to some fault condition, e.g., a hang] neglects to regularly service the watchdog by writing a "service pulse" to it (aka, "kicking the dog", “petting the dog”, "feeding the watchdog“ or "waking the watchdog"). The intention is to bring the system back: from an unresponsive state  into normal operation.

14 DMA Direct memory access (DMA) is a feature of modern computers that allows certain hardware subsystems within the computer to access system memory independently of the CPU! Without DMA, when the CPU is using programmed input/output, it is typically fully occupied for the entire duration of the read or write operation, and is thus unavailable to perform other work. With DMA, the CPU initiates the transfer, does other operations while the transfer is in progress, and receives an interrupt from the DMA controller when the operation is done.

15 This feature is useful any time the CPU cannot keep up with the rate of data transfer, or where the CPU needs to perform useful work while waiting for a relatively slow I/O data transfer. Many hardware systems use DMA, including disk drive controllers, graphics cards, network cards and sound cards. DMA is also used for intra-chip data transfer in multi-core processors. Computers that have DMA channels can transfer data to and from devices with much less CPU overhead than computers without a DMA channel. Similarly, a processing element inside a multi-core processor can transfer data to and from its local memory without occupying its processor time, allowing computation and data transfer to proceed in parallel.

16 i386SL The i386SL was introduced as a power efficient version for laptop computers. The processor offered several power management options (e.g., SMM – System Management Mode), as well as different "sleep" modes to conserve battery power. It also contained support for an external cache of 16 to 64 kB. The extra functions and circuit implementation techniques caused this variant to have over 3 times as many transistors as the i386DX.

17 SMM The system management mode - is an operating mode in which all normal execution (including the operating system) is suspended, and special separate software (usually firmware or a hardware-assisted debugger) is executed in high-privilege mode. It is intended for use only by system firmware, not by applications software or general-purpose systems software.

18 The first company to design and manufacture a PC based on the Intel was Compaq – the 1st 3rd-party to implement a major technical hardware advance on the PC platform.  The 80486 and P5 Pentium line of processors were descendants of the design.
