Tekmos Expands Line of Microprocessors

AUSTIN, Texas, September 1, 2014 -- Tekmos, Inc., a leader leader specializing in sustainable solutions in the development and manufacturing of drop in replacement and high temperature microprocessors for extreme environments, has expanded its line of microprocessors with two 80C186 microprocessors: TK80C186EC and the TK80C188EC.

The Tekmos 80C186 series has been carefully designed to duplicate the original 80C186 in all aspects except for co-processor support. The TK80C186EC and TK80C188EC will work correctly at either 3 or 5 volts. The original Intel parts were sorted by minimum operating voltage to select parts for the “L” series. With today’s improved process control, it is possible for all Tekmos parts to operate at both 3 and 5 volts. Orders for the “L” series will be filled with “C” parts. The TK80C186EC is available in 100 pin PQFP. They are direct, pin for pin, replacements for the S80C186EC.

The availability of the TK80C186EC and the TK80C188EC are additions to the already available TK80C186EB and TK80C188EB. These additions to the TK80C186 line of microprocessors join the 80C51, 78HC05 and 68HC11 microprocessors already in production at Tekmos.
